New "My Form Created" Poem - The Lord Had Other Plans

 The Lord Had Other Plans


I know how far reaching He spans
That time is sometimes what is needed
When to my life the Lord had other plans

As to the situation I'd clasp my hands
Down on my knees as I pleaded
For I know how far reaching He spans

To His plan my life fell, not man's
As man's plans to my life growth receded
When to my life the Lord had other plans

Now that time has taken it's past
I see why to man's plan my life did suffer
As growth in sufferance His plans recast

Although at times life did get rougher
When to His plans I knew to obey
But to this my being became tougher

At last I understand His ways
Now I know how far reaching He spans
Time and space to my life He gave array
When to my life the Lord had other plans

Thoughts: You know, this one touches on a personal note. Sometimes waiting on the Lord can be difficult; especial when waiting for something or someone you've waited for an extended amount of time. But if it is truly of the Lord to have what you've waited for one must learn if it is yours to have He will eventually grant it to you in His timing; not yours. Trying to force something to happen in your own timing never works out well. Too, being faithful and devoted to the Lord means to allow Him to work things out in His own timing and to know the Lord may have others plans for your life; must better plans. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope" (Jeremiah 29:11. NKJV). I've learned this the hard way and know now for my life the lord has other plans that I can't wait to see; but, I will wait for the plans He has for my life. Wonderful Plans!
