Controlling All

It is The Lord God who chooses, every doctor that He uses,
To treat the cancer deep in me, to heal my dreaded infirmity;
And with allowing each procedure, this for certain, I am sure,
Granting grace along the way, for every single hospital stay.

He directs my path with grace, dictating every doctorís pace,
Never allowing what might be, controlling what is best for me,
When His providence did override, the procedure was denied,
Surely not the docís first choice, God trumps the docís voice.

Such has been the way of God, on this present journey I trod,
Along the journey with my wife, while in the autumn of our life,
A journey that wasnít our choice, but, in God we could rejoice,
For God holds us in His hand, in times difficult to understand.

With another procedure behind, we in God had peace of mind,
With Godís peace in our heart, knowing Christ wouldnít depart,
Who, is that light upon our path, through all and any aftermath,
We, not knowing whatís ahead, lean upon Jesus Christ instead.

With more ahead down the road, God will help lighten our load,
As we cast all burdens to Him, Christ gives us His peace within,
And with decisions yet to be made, at His feet they can be laid,
While we lean upon Jesus Christ, through all the trials in our life.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

How wise you and your wife are to put it all in
God's hands, trusting and accepting.  Thanks so much for sharing these lines with us.

My prayers for you and yours, Bob.

God bless,
  Rae
