God's Way is Perfect

My Father's way may twist and turn;
My heart may throb and ache;
But in my soul, I'm glad I know
He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,
My hope may fade away;
But still I'll trust my Lord to lead
For He doth know the way.

Tho' night be dark and it may seem
That day will never break;
I'll pin my faith, my all in Him;
He maketh no mistake.

There's so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight's far to dim,
But come what may, I'll simply trust
And leave it all with Him.

For by and by the mist will lift
And plain it all He'll make.
Thro' all the way, tho' dark to me,
He made not one mistake.

I came across this wonderful poem, and it really spoke to me. One my friends is going though such a hard time; I hurt so badly for her. Honestly, sometimes I get mad...Do you ever wonder why such good people go through such hard times. But this poem was a great reminder to me...God knows what He is doing- He has never made one mistake...God's way is perfect.
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose."
