"You must love all that God has created, both His entire world and each tiny little sand grain of it, then your mind will open itself to an all embracing love." Fyodor Dostoyevsky

We Can't, But God Can, a poem by Helen Steiner Rice

We Can't, But God Can
By, Helen Steiner Rice
Why things happen as they do
we do not always know,
And we cannot always fathom
why our spirits sink so low.
We flounder in our dark distress,
we are wavering and unstable,
But when we're most inadequate,
the Lord God's always able-
For though we are incapable,
God's powerful and great,
And there's no darkness of the mind
God cannot penetrate...
And while He may not instantly
unravel all the strands
Of the tanglesd thoughts that trouble us,
He completely understands-
And in HIs time, if we have faith,
he will gradually restore
The brightness to our spirits
that we've been longing for.
So remember there's no cloud too dark
for God's light to penertrate
If we keep on believing
and have faith enough to wait.

Life is filled with conflicts and confusions and can take some real faith in the everyday stuff... but I know with Him ever leading the way, I will have peace as I trust in Him...
Until next time,
