In Acceptance Lieth Peace
Didn't mean to post twice today.
I have been going through some challenges lately - I will just leave it at that for now.
I believe in a sovereign God, I believe that He allows all things for my good, to refine me and get rid of the dross...
This poem challenges me to see God's bigger plan for my life than what I can see...
In acceptance lieth peace,
O my heart be still;
Let thy restless worries cease
And accept His will.
Though this test be not thy choice,
It is His—therefore rejoice.
In His plan there cannot be
Aught to make thee sad:
If this is His choice for thee,
Take it and be glad.
Make from it some lovely thing
To the glory of thy King.
Cease from sighs and murmuring,
Sing His loving grace,
This thing means thy furthering
To a wealthy place.
From thy fears He’ll give release,
In acceptance lieth peace.
