Joy In Submission

The center of Your will, Lord,
That's where I want to be,
And if that means I walk through this
Then have Your way with me.

I would not choose what causes pain,
But, Lord, You know what's best,
And if this trial's for my good
In it I choose to rest.

These years with You have taught me
You always seek my good,
And so I can give thanks in this,
Before I never could.

I find only fulfillment,
And joy and peace are friends,
And though the present may bring pain
My path in glory ends.


"But He said to me, My grace--My favor and loving-kindness and mercy--are enough for you, (that is, sufficient against any danger and to enable you to bear the trouble manfully); for My strength and power are made perfect--fulfilled and completed and show themselves most effective--in (your) weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ, the Messiah, may rest--yes, may pitch a tent (over) and dwell-upon me!" II Corinthians 12:9 (Amplified Bible)

"For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, In returning to Me and resting in Me you shall be saved; in quietness and in (trusting) confidence shall be your strength." Isaiah 30:15a (Amplified Bible)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Carol, you should have a website - like Mariane's - to display your wonderful poetry for all the world to see. (Perhaps she can mentor you in setting up such a blessing.) You are a gifted poet, my dear! Thank you for the encouragement you give in just a few lines of verse.
Verna Cole Mitchell  08 Jan 2011
Such an encouraging poem!
Mariane Holbrook 08 Jan 2011
Carol, like your other poems, this one is such a keeper. They lend themselves so well to the bookmark format that I'd love to see you look into that if you haven't already done so. Your poems go right to the heart and speak to so many of us. God bless your writing gift and use it to touch the lives of many, many people.

Carol, your poetry goes to the point and I'm sure helps many people. Thank you.
