I Am Learning Lord

Post by webmaster »

Got this in an Email from a lady named Betty. Thought I'd share with y'all.

I Am Learning Lord

My life has taken many falls
And tumbles 'long the way.
The many trials have left me
In a sure state of dismay.

For with each trial, I tried alone
To tend, and soothe, and mend,
Instead of giving them to God
And on Him just depend . . .
But, I am learning, Lord.

It seems that I was determined
To carry all the load.
I longed for smoother pathways.
Yet, I walked a rocky road.

Little did I understand,
God waited patiently
To pave a new beginning
With a better life for me.
But, I am learning, Lord.

It took a real disaster
To bring me to my knees;
To finally call upon the Lord
And say, "God help me, please."

He can, with no delaying,
With strong arms that could hold
The weight of all my burdens;
He gladly took the load.
And, I am learning, Lord.

What a needless cross I carried,
All because I could not see
What a friend I have in Jesus,
And the love He has for me.

Peace I find when troubles hover,
Though' the outcome is unknown.
For if yet the road is rocky,
I won't walk it all alone.
For, I am learning, Lord.
