His Way

Listen to this devotional:
Listen while you read: "Jesus Thy Blood And Righteousness"1 (Lyrics)

A few months ago, I saw on Facebook a picture of a little boy and girl leaning on a partial wall looking into the distance. The caption was from a mother or a grandmother, and it read, "If only I could change your world, I would."

Yes, with so many restrictions and the isolation going on, the situation is affecting young and old alike. A friend's granddaughter commented one day that she didn't think anyone loved her anymore. When she was asked why she would say that, she replied, "Because nobody hugs or kisses me anymore."

As I was drawn to that picture and the little girl's comment, my heart and mind felt her pain. This is what I was led to write.

           His Way

    If only I could have my way
    You'd have fun every day
    Out with your friends you could safely play
    Oh, if only I could have my way.

    It would be stress-free to go to school
    Everyone would obey the Golden Rule
    Wouldn't matter if you were white or black
    And where you're from wouldn't be under attack

    Yes, if only I could have my way
    But it is better, when it is God's way.
    He's waiting for people to live by the Golden Rule
    Then, everyone would be safe at work and school.

    Bad things happen, this is true
    But trust in God, He is there for you
    This builds character in me and you
    No matter life's storms, He'll see you through

    Loving God and each other is the most important thing
    Put your life in His hands and peace He will bring
    And if we let God have His way
    It can cause us to be thankful every day.

Psalm 25:10 – All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant. (NIV)

Proverbs 3:6 – In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (NIV)

Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, thank You for watching over us and protecting us. Help us to see that Your way is the only way to go through life with hope. Help us to share this hope with others who do not have it. May Your way be our way in everything! Help the hurting to find that You are there for them also. We praise You, Jesus. Amen.

    Beautiful and perfect for this Covid world we’ve been accustomed to.
    Brenda’s wonderful poem reminds us that God is above all of this, as we continue to
    look to Him for Hope.
    Blessings to you.

    Thanks Brenda! That’s a beautiful poem.
    I like it so much.
    I’d like to share this with our Sunday School children. It’s a perfect message for all of them.
    Thank you,

    Brenda, today I looked on as my granddaughter played gratefully with children of many ages and colours simply because they were in the same park. Perhaps they are gaining knowledge of how precious and fragile each moment is.
    Thanks for helping us keep God’s perspective in this pandemic.

    Hello Brenda,
    Many thanks for your most meaningful and well expressed devotional today. That is a great poem you have written and is very mindful of the right “way” we should follow in our daily lives. We need be ever grateful that our Lord is ever present to take us the right way through life’s happenings. Blessings for writing.

    Dear Brenda,
    Your poem says it all. It is a talent to be able to write poetry.
    Your poem points out no matter how often we want things our way, God’s way is the best because he sees the whole picture and we just glimpse a small fraction. Thank you for encouraging us about the love, guidance, and hope that God has for us. May we soon be able to hug and kiss others once again and may you continue to share your thoughts with others. Blessings.

    Thank you so much for your devotional today.

    Thank you, Brenda, for that wonderful message.

    Good morning Brenda,
    Thank you for your devotional. I like your poem.

    Lovely poem.
    Thank you.
