My dear granddaughter, Riley Donato loves the Lord and loves reading and writing stories and poetry. The other day she showed me this poem that she wrote. I thought immediately about sharing it with my church friends and family.
“Be still, and know that I am God” - Psalm 46:10
A quote most everyone’s heard
But only few truly listen.
It’s a reminder to not fret about this, or about that
Yet your over here stressing because of a broken thermostat
It’s a reminder to just chill; take a breath
Even if you’re near death
Just remember that it’s God’s timing
Even if it doesn’t seem good to you,
I promise it is the perfect choice
Stop complaining and rejoice
God cares for you and for me
That thought should let you feel free
God is sovereign and you are not
It’s honestly a good thing for us because I know if we were Him, we would screw up… A LOT!
