I started a new project the other day, one that I'd tried many times to do,
and though I'd read and follow the directions, it always looked like nothing when I was through.
I left this type of project alone, since it wasn't a skill I had to know, but the thought of it stayed in the back of my mind, I'd see it everywhere I'd go.
So I decided to try it again, to see if my hands would know, how to make that turn at the end and go back across the row.
I worked very slowly, absorbed in my task, and carefully looped the thread around, and wonder of wonders, this time it worked, a new understanding had been found.
I think of my days, and how like them this is, I'd try something, fail, then shy away, but if I'd only gone to the source, He would have shown me the way.
He'd made me that promise the day He'd moved in to be ruler of my heart,
that anything that He'd planned for me to do, He'd show me how to do each part.
Remembering this, and how lonely I’d once been, and tried to solve that on my own, and Jesus gently taught me that it was He who would know, only then would I be shown.
And once I accepted that all I needed to do was follow, He brought me into a brand new place, and gave me love and joy and peace, the day I first saw your face.
He was the One who made the plan, He knew my heart and just what to do,
to give me all the desires of my heart, in His timing, He gave me you!
Now every day, my joy is complete, and His mercies are ever new, and I get to show in a thousand new ways, how very much I love you!
