God’s Hands

God’s Hands

Sometimes we must be hurt
in order to grow,

we must fail in order to know,
we must lose in order to gain.
Some lessons are learned best
only through pain.

Sometimes our vision clears only
after our eyes are washed with tears.
Sometimes we have to be broken
so we can be tender; sick, so we
can rest and think better on things
more important than work or fun.
Trip near death, so we can
assess how we’ve ran.
Sometimes we have to suffer lack
so we can know God’s provisions,
feel another’s pain,
so we can have a sense of mission.

So take heart my friend,
If you don’t understand today,
Instead of grumbling,
ask God what He means to say.
In order to learn, you must endure
and learn to see the bigger picture.
In order to grow, you must stand.

Look beyond the hurt, to God’s loving
hands that takes what is good
And give what is best.

And on this blessed thought rest, as
your anxious heart with questions wait.
God’s hand only gives
what his loving heart dictates.
