Providence, Suffered It Not to Be

Providence, Suffered It Not to Be

Though one may dream, there’s no guarantee,
That the dream one dreams will be reality.
Men imagine being all they could be,
Going far, flying high, living free.
But, providence, suffered it not to be.

A few have been as gifted as can be,
Bursting at the seams with ability.
Adored by hordes with hearts of glee,
Anointed the next great one of destiny,
But, providence, suffered it not to be.

Some can-do people in pursuit of possibility,
Toil wholly for the sake of their posterity,
To bring about better opportunity,
So their seed will rise above the ills of society.
But, providence, suffered it not to be.

Many falter on the faint hope of celebrity,
Taking the shady route to prosperity.
Conjuring up capers, conceiving incorrectly,
That winning at all costs trumps doing justly.
But, providence, suffered it not to be.

To the shooting stars on the way to glory,
Beware of the black holes of adversity.
You may desire a life as a fairytale story,
But pray, “Lord, Your will be done for me.”
Just in case, providence, suffers it not to be.

Make it a habit to say, "If the Master wills it and we're still alive, we'll do this or that."
James 4:15MSG
