In His Will

Whatever should happen today, to me, along my present way,
While I am on this earthly sod, upon the path planned by God;
When you look behind my story, it is for Godís ultimate Glory,
While I live out all my earthly days, I give to God all the praise.

Whether thereís sunshine or rain, God is with me in joy or pain,
Suffering God may well prescribe, but in my Lord I shall abide,
I may even need to take a bitter pill, as God works out His Will,
But the bad taste wonít remain, as Godís Joy outlasts the pain.

All pain and frustration I can bear, because I know God is there,
For God is with me at every step, while in His Grace, I am kept.
Being kept through every fiery trial, for Heís my God, no denial,
And He will be with me to the end; Jesus Christ, my best friend.

Whatever His Will, itíll be done, and I will just follow Godís Son,
Who always goes ahead of me, on my journey towards eternity;
Christ showed us real sacrifice, when He paid the ultimate price,
To place me where I am today, upon that Christ led Narrow Way.

Being in Godís Will, you will find, in any place, a peace of mind,
In His Will, is the very best place, being sustained by His Grace,
As His hand leads you along, while He fills your heart with song,
For knowing the last stop will be, your home in Heaven eternally.

(Copyright ©03/2011 Bob Gotti)

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
because of the Lord's great love we are not
consumed, for his compassions never fail. They
are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."The LORD is
good to those whose hope is in him, to the one
who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the
salvation of the LORD. (Lamentations 3:21-26)

In His Service, Bob Gotti

I popped in thinking that if I couldn't lend you some comfort, at least I could be company.

I certainly wasn't expecting to find that you--comfort me.

Good medicine, Bob.
