Appointment with God!

Nearness to God used with permission IBible Verses

Every disappointment,
is an appointment with God
every soul that is disheartened
will be comforted by His rod.

Every heartbreak,
is a chance to find His love
every tragedy that befalls us
is a date with God above.

Every hardship,
is an agonizing upward hill
every trial that comes our way
is an encounter to know His will.

Every uncertainty,
is a meeting up with fear
every little doubt we have
is an engagement to draw Him near.

Every temptation,
is a rendezvous with sin
every occurrence we resist
is a commitment to be close to Him.

Every disagreement,
is a run-in with discord
every ordeal we go through
is an assignment to trust the Lord.

Every complication,
is a snag we’ve come across
every instance that we fail
is an occasion to assemble at the cross.

Every day is an appointment,
that with God we need to make
every day is an engagement
that with God we need to take!

Acts 17:27

“That they should seek the Lord,
if haply they might feel after him,
and find him, though he be not far
from every one of us:”

    As always, I appreciate your insightful comments expressed poetically. Are you familiar with this poem that offers a similar view that there is never any disappointment with God who does everything on purpose: As for God, His way is perfect. Be blessed.

    Disappointment

    “Disappointment – His appointment,”
    Change one letter, then I see
    That the thwarting of my purpose
    Is God’s better choice for me.
    His appointment must be a blessing,
    Though it may come in disguise,
    For the end from the beginning
    Open to His wisdom lies.

    “Disappointment – His appointment,”
    Whose? The Lord, who loves me best,
    Understands and knows me fully,
    Who my faith and love would test;
    For, like a loving earthly parent,
    He rejoices when He knows
    That His child accepts, unquestioned,
    All that from His wisdom flows.

    “Disappointment – His appointment,”
    “No good thing will He withhold,”
    From denials oft we gather
    Treasures of His love untold,
    Well He knows each broken purpose
    Leads to fuller, deeper trust,
    And the end of all His dealings
    Proves our God is wise and just.

    “Disappointment – His appointment,”
    Lord, I take it, then, as such.
    Like the clay in hands of potter,
    Yielding wholly to Thy touch.
    All my life’s plan is Thy moulding,
    Not one single choice be mine;
    Let me answer, unrepining –
    “Father, not my will, but Thine.”
