God’s Way

We are God’s, and he will have his way.

No matter if we’re listening, it’ll pass one day

Even if we make wrong decisions or screw up a bunch,

It’s all in God’s will, he’ll use it, I know this much.

So if you’re deciding something important, the pressure is off.

He will teach you and guide you, so don’t write it off.

When in doubt, take it to the Lord in prayer.

But then, do I really want to go there?

I pray about something, but I’m afraid of God’s answer.

What if it’s no? Is that a tear-enhancer?

Being okay with God’s answers on our own?

We don’t have the strength, not while alone.

“God, have your way, and help me to accept,

Whatever you say, ‘cuz then I’ll be fine, except,

I need you every day, I’m not real good just me.

Convict me of it, and with me always be.”

“Be still,” a voice says in my head.

“The Lord will fight for you, his Word even said.”

“I remember,” I say back to the voice.

I open the Word again and rejoice.

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

I flip the pages with an excited nod.

“Don’t worry about tomorrow, I got this.”

(The paraphrasing reader in my head is dismissed.)

I smile to myself as I close the Bible gently.

Why should I even doubt? He’s totally got me.

Taking things to him and letting him take them,

It’s a real pressure release, ahem?

I know I don’t always listen to what I say,

But I’m happy to know God uses it anyway.

Sometimes I write things to preach it to me.

He uses these and then is like, “See?”
