If God has willed it, my body will be healed.
But whatever the case, my fate has been sealed.
For Christ is my Savior, and Iím ready today,
To hear my heavenly Father, say everythingís OK.

What God has willed, is my goal in this life.
To be a mother to my children, and to my husband, a wife.
To raise up a family, with the fear of the Lord,
To serve one another, in Heavenly accord

When God has willed it, I will step to the plate.
I will rise with great courage, as I walk through that gate.
I will have no regret, of the things from the past,
For the seeds I have sown, through my Savior will last.

Where God has willed it, is where I want to be.
For itís only through Jesus, that I have gained eyes to see.
If He gives me tomorrow, I am blessed way beyond,
For itís me and my Savior, with that God given bond.

Why God has willed it, I will not understand,
Till I stand at His side, in the Holy Promised Land.
Itís only for His purpose, that I live here on earth,
My real homes in Heaven, and Iíve known this from birth.

How God has willed it: some things are not clear.
So I look toward the future, and Iím free from all fear.
I know through this journey, whether short or so long,
That with the saints up in glory, I will sing a new song.

So, my dear Father, what will You do?
Will You grant me the time, to teach my great grandkids to?
To watch them grow up, and accept You, each one,
To turn to the cross, and acknowledge Your Son.

So in my autumn of life, I give You the glory.
I know that itís You, who writes the end of my story.
I will live every day, and I will cherish each bit.
And in each circumstance I will say, ďIf God Wills It.Ē

What a wonderful, endearing poem that you have created! I think I'll memorize parts of it. I can hardly wait for your future entries. Thank you, for reminding of the pertinent, in life's closing assessments. Bryan. 13Jul09Mon.

Beautiful! Truthful! His will should be all that matters. Mat 7;21 Jesus said,"Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of the Father which is in heaven". How many Christians really know the will of the Father? And how many are doing it? God Bless You! I'll see you in Heaven!
