Knowing Not Whatís Ahead

I donít know what lies ahead, so I look to my Savior instead,
The One Who bore a cross for me, to die a death at Calvary,
He, Who did that for me friend, knows how my path will end,
And so Iíll fix my eyes on Him, as He gives me peace within.

On every path that we trod, we must trust our Lord and God,
For on the path He has us go, our Lordís desires shall show,
Where that path will end for us, as we follow our Lord Jesus.
And what the outcome will be, within the plan we cannot see.

The Plan of God we must embrace, while living out our days,
As children formed of but dust, an Eternal God we can trust,
For our Lord makes no mistake, on any path He has us take,
As all things work out for good, in His ways not understood.

Whether my path is bright or dim, I must always trust in Him,
He, Who knitted me in the womb, has set up, for me a room,
In His Fatherís Home above, where Christ leads by His Love,
Love, He guides me in each day, even upon the darkest way.

Even if I choose my path in life, my wayís directed by Christ,
And upon every path taken, by my Lord I am never forsaken,
Who continues daily leading me, from this earth into Eternity,
Where all things will fall in place, when I see my Saviorís face.

Have A Blessed Day, 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)

Years ago I used to wonder why God wouldn't let us know what lies ahead for us, but now I'm thankful He's protected us by hiding it.  If we just live each day as though it may be our last, following Him in thankfulness, we will see many more instances of His wonderful works.  Thanks for sharing this insightful piece, Bob.

God bless,
