You Provide

I know you will provide,
but to be still takes faith.
Patience is a virtue lost with time.
Handing over control
seems nearly impossible,
but you make all possible.
Men must have dreams,
but those who only dream
lose all of them to reality.
When dreams are shattered
the moment is wrenching.
When my soul is told no
my flesh rebels.
You lead me to another path.
Open my eyes to the road.
Give me strength to hand over control.
Help me understand.
I know you have a plan,
but I don’t know my role.
All I can do is trust.
Trust in your majesty
and hope in your will.

[Psalm 37:3-6] Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.

[Proverbs 3:5-6] Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
