BY MOMENT WITH HIM
we so easily forget,
unpredictable our lives may be,
make plans for our tomorrows and our futures,
realizing they could change instantly.
one day, you wake up, and it happens,
occurs that’s not at all like you’ve planned,
life has now taken a new direction,
it may be difficult for you to understand.
never promised that we’d never have struggles,
there would always be sunshine and not rain,
He said He’d never leave nor forsake us,
with His presence we will forever be sustained.
God takes us from the height of the mountain,
then places us in the valley of despair,
here we can learn total dependence,
the One who will always be there.
it’s only through the midst of the trials,
see God works in ways we’d never have dreamed,
accomplishes so much beyond our understanding,
now things may not be at all what they’d seemed.
may not know why God allowed such a hardship,
must learn to trust in the One who knows best,
our future is seen by Him only,
in Him we can confidently rest.
when the unexpected may arise in our lifetime,
the way God is leading seems dim,
we face it not ONE DAY at a time,
instead, MOMENT BY MOMENT with Him.
Linda Lee Wolovich
A note from the author:
poem was written after my son was diagnosed with
Type I Diabetes.
The unexpected makes you realize just how
precious life is,
that nothing is ever guaranteed or should be taken
and we have to face each day not in our own
but only in His.
God has said,
I will never fail you.
I will never forsake you."
Hebrews 13:5 (NLT)
