The Plan

The Plan

The father he loved had to leave him early.
His death came too soon, leaving the young man confused and bitter.
It wasn’t fair; why did he have to die like that?

The Son’s death came early; the Father planned it.
It wasn’t fair; why did He have to die like that?
The Father had to let his Son die, to welcome the young man's father home
And to take away the young man’s confusion and bitterness.

The Father had plans for the young man,
As He had had plans for his father before him,
But the young man would never recognize or realize those plans
As long as the confusion and bitterness remained.

Could he again put his trust in the Father, rather than blame him?
Could he believe in a Father whom he didn't fully understand?
Didn't he often do the same with his other father as a child?
Isn't that what trust often involves--the unknown? 

As the grief and hurt and feelings of betrayal gradually eased away,
He remembered another Son who grieved for those He loved, yet was betrayed.
He knew then that his father was truly home, with the Father and Son,
And someday he would join his father and a host of others who had believed.
