A Puzzle Taking Shape

Waiting, trusting, expecting
that's what Christians do...
amid the negative clamoring
God's word remains true.
pessimistic reports flourish,
you can hear them everywhere...
the gloomy clouds are hovering
and linger in the air.

Though satan's fiery arrows
are aimed relentlessly,
I shall not allow him
to steal my victory!
I'm determined to press on
though my senses say opposite;

choosing to trust the Lord
and the leading of the Spirit.

Through smiles and tears
I'll continue on my journey,

for it's a new season in
God's perfect plan for me.
it's a puzzle taking shape
approved by God's design,
yet to fulfill His purpose
all the pieces must align.

Can I slip thru God's fingers
and blindly go astray?
not when God is ordering
my steps along the way!
one thing I can count on,
God's light is glowing
as He guides my weary feet
when I'm NOT sure where I'm going!

Written after my late husband's death, and before the Lord brought His plan for the next chapter of my life to fruition!  He NEVER fails.  Praise His Name!
