God Is In Control

©

Published: August 2014

No matter what you have been told
God is in control
Yes, they came with a report one day
But God has the last say
Rest assured he is near
No need to fear

Hold on to Faith real tight
Know that everything is going to be alright
When God is in the midst
Defeat doesn't exist
You serve a God who can make a bird sing a beautiful melody
A God who can calm the sea
A God who holds your destiny
He is your healing spring
And in his hands he brings

Hope
Strength
Life
Love
Newness
and Joy

All just for you, because his love is everlasting and true

I am a girl who lives in doubts, fears and questions. I always ask God why me? I always think that I can't do something. I am a perfect example of a pessimist, but God always has His way of making me calm and telling me that I have to trust Him and should not worry about a thing.

My wife passed a way almost three years a go with brain cancer. I brought her to U.S for treatment. We struggled too much, but she couldn't hold on more. I had to bury her in Michigan where I have been waiting for her to come back to me or else I will be buried next to her.
The poem touched me so much and made me cry.
Many thanks for the writer

Sorry... I lost track of this website. And now I have re-found it. I am glad to have read your comments. I thank you for your kind comments. It's always nice to know that there are people like you who uplifted my spirits.

This is a wonderful and encouraging poem. It is true, God is really in control, so nothing to fear about whatever life may bring. In every circumstance that we have, we must offer it to God because nothing is impossible with Him, if we only believe... Trust Him.
