God Has a Plan--By Lisa DeVinney--United States

God Has a Plan

If dark have been your dreams of late,
And prayers seem stuck at Heaven’s gate,
You’re sinking fast in shifting sand,
Take heart, my friend… God has a plan.

And when the winds begin to howl,
The enemy is on the prowl,
The ground shakes so you cannot stand,
Look up, my friend… God has a plan.

And His plan is always for good,
To make things turn out as they should.
Just leave things in His mighty hand;
And trust Him for God has a plan.

  6. Lisa, your words so true, struck a very responsive note in me. Indeed God has a plan for each of us. The trick is to allow Him to bring to fruition those plans. We often let our will get in the way however. Thank you for the reminder we all need to let go and let God.
    Love, Charlene
