Lord, You know the burdens we carry

You understand details and grasp the

Pain. You’re able to remove the weight

If only we’ll let go.


Give us childlike faith and simple trust

To empty troubles and cares from our

Hands, freeing us to rest within Your

Tender, relentless grip.


Lord, You know the growth You’re producing

Through trials, anguish, and sorrows we

Face. Your wisdom and power excel

Though we often resist.


Teach us to receive Your will with ease

To rejoice in Your purpose and good

Plan. Because You never make mistakes

Although we wonder why.


Lord, You know the joy that awaits us

When You reveal the full picture of

Grace. Your glory will shine with brilliance

In every life story.


Strengthen us to wait with hope and peace

Knowing Your touch cleanses and creates

Life. Conform us to Your Son, Jesus,

Who gave His all for You.

You never make mistakes although we wonder why...#Faith #Trust #Jesus Click To Tweet
