In HIS Will

In HIS Will

LORD, I hope I’m empty
when I’m called to be with YOU.
I pray I’ve done most that I should
when my days are through.

I wonder if I’m in YOUR will
with “how” I’m living life.
I sometimes doubt I’m even “close”
when I experience strife.

It seems like I must hurry
to complete my own life’s task.
But I’m not sure just what it is
because I’ve failed to ask.

I often fail to “get it”
the “first” time YOUR wills shown.
I usually see what YOU were doing
when my problems grown.

Then I remember what YOU said…
YOU will never leave me.
YOU never promised a care free life;
one that may not grieve me.

The paths I’ve chosen sometimes proved
to be the wrong direction.
That’s when I felt YOUR guidance…
then your kind correction.

LORD I want to “use” the time
YOU have for me allotted.
I truly want to do YOUR will,
the course for me YOU plotted.

Please teach me how to listen
and be receptive to YOUR will.
Help me pay close attention,
and to keep my own voice still.

I sincerely hope I recognize
future blessings you provide me.
I pray I’m stirred to hear YOUR voice
way down deep inside me.

Only YOU can make
the crooked way become the straight.
I pray LORD that there still is time
and that it’s not too late.

One day YOU will call us home
and we’ll all see YOUR face.
The worldly things that filled our lives
YOU will then replace.

The earthly treasures left behind
will no longer hold appeal.
We will rejoice to be in Heaven
as before YOU we will kneel.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6


I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
Psalms 32:8


If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all {men} liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
