I resist the urge

To give up the fight

Understanding that He

Knows my plight

I have to trust

God knows best

Even when life

Leaves me distressed

I remind myself

It will work out

Because He understands

What it’s all about

Still I resist

His sovereign hand

Wanting things to go

As I have planned

Giving up control

Seems all I can do

The only way

I’ll ever get through

  1. I can so relate to this. Have had to let go of some of my plans in exchange for His lately. I’m trusting His are better in the long run!
