You can make many plans,
    but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. 

Proverbs 19:21

God’s Plan

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.”

Romans 8:28-29a
