She got to her feet slowly,
Hands reaching out to support,
Faces turned in respect and anticipation
Sensible shoes, hand knitted cardi,
I see a Proverbs 31 woman,
her husband, from the front of the church has full confidence in her
her children, safely grown, call her blessed.
As I wait for her to speak, I know, she will choose
words of contentment and thanks for faithful provision.
I don’t like change,
And God has brought many changes into my life
And I am still learning to trust in him.
She sits. We sing the hymn she chose.
I used to like change, choose change,
I was the changer, in control, making my choices.
Then things happened. God brought changes into my life that
I didn’t want, didn’t understand why.
Painful changes, requiring sacrifice of my choices, my goals.
This is what we sang. I wept. With God things don’t just happen. I’m holding onto that.
This is her favourite hymn, it could be mine now.I do not know what lies ahead,
the way I cannot see;
yet One stands near to be my guide,
He’ll show the way to me:
I know who holds the future,
and He’ll guide me with His hand;
with God things don’t just happen,
everything by Him is planned.
So as I face tomorrow,
with its problems large and small,
I’ll trust the God of miracles,
give to Him my all.
I do not know how many days
of life are mine to spend;
but One who knows and cares for me
will keep me to the end:
I do not know the course ahead,
what joys and griefs are there;
but One is near who fully knows,
I’ll trust His loving care:
