from CITY BIBLE CHURCH!
You can make many plans,
but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.
The Lord holds you in
The very palm of His hand,
So though His will is sometimes
Hard to understand,
Your job is not to ask “Why?”
Or to try to take control,
But to trust the Author of life
With all your being and soul.
For He created you
With a special plan in mind,
Arranging each experience you’d have
With a purpose that’s one-of-a-kind.
So don’t let doubts and fears
Block the path He chose just for you;
Instead draw on His infinite power
To passionately pursue
Every dream and opportunity
That He leads you to,
Diligently developing and using the talents
He purposefully placed in you.
Made for His glory and your good,
God’s design has no flaw,
So don’t fret when He allows pain
Or things to go wrong—
God has a perfect reason
In your life for everything:
To mold you into the Christ-like person
He has planned you to be.
“And we know that in all things
God works for the good
of those who love Him,
who have been called according to His purpose.
For those God foreknew He also predestined
to be conformed to the likeness of His Son.”
