What Lies Ahead ~

 

I don’t know the future,
or what for me it has in store
I don’t know if it’ll come
peacefully or with a roar.

I don’t know if it’ll hold,
thunderous clouds or blue skies
I don’t know if it’ll bring
me smiles or teary eyes.

I don’t know if it’ll arrive
to add or take from my life
I don’t know if it’ll send
more happiness or strife.

I don’t know if it’ll appear,
as a vapor or as a stream
I don’t know if it’ll produce
in me joy or a scream.

I don’t know the future
or what lies ahead . . .
but I am certain
I will be Spirit lead!

~~~~~~~

James 4:13-15

Go to now, ye that say, To day
or to morrow we will go into such
a city, and continue there a year,
and buy and sell, and get gain:

Whereas ye know not what shall be
on the morrow. For what is your life?
It is even a vapour, that appeareth
for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

For that ye ought to say,
If the Lord will, we shall live,
and do this, or that.

Don’t Worry . . . Trust ~

Don't Worry . . . Trust ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Don’t worry about tomorrow,
give no thought to what lies ahead
for, Jesus wants you to trust Him
not to live in fear and dread.

Don’t be concerned about the future,
give no thought to where you’ll be
for, Jesus wants you to go to Him
not to panic over what you can’t see.

Don’t stress  about the unfamiliar,
give no thought to what you don’t know
for, Jesus wants you to follow Him
so His plans for you, He can show.

Don’t fret about tomorrow,
give no thought in what you hear
for, Jesus wants to take care of you . . .
so there’s no need for you to fear!

Matthew 6:25-26
King James Version

“Therefore I say unto you,
Take no thought for your life,

what ye shall eat,
or what ye shall drink;

nor yet for your body,
what ye shall put on.

Is not the life more than meat,
and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air:
for they sow not,

neither do they reap,
nor gather into barns;

yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them.

Are ye not much
better than they?”

What Lies Ahead ~

No Eye Has Seen used with permission Doorpost Verses on Face book
I do not know,
what lies ahead
but this I do know
I won’t be mislead.

What I cannot see,
with my own eyes
those of God’s
will make me wise.

God has shown me,
salvation’s truest light
as I read my Bible
I sense His holy might.

Though I have ears,
I can’t hear Him speak
but I heed none less
when His will I seek.

I’ve taken note,
of His divine revelation
and made the Gospels
my true foundation.

I don’t know what God,
has out there for me
but I know if I wait
His glory I will see!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 64:4-5
King James Version

“For since the beginning
of the world men have not heard,

nor perceived by the ear,
neither hath the eye seen,

O God, beside thee,
what he hath prepared for him

that waiteth for him.”

I Didn’t Know!

God Has A Purpose used with permission IBible Verses

I didn’t know back then,
God had a plan for me
I didn’t know the designs
He had in store for me.

I wasn’t lead to the Word,
to see it with my own eyes
I didn’t know I had a future
to this ~ I wasn’t made wise.

I didn’t know to pray,
to ask Him for direction
I didn’t know my ignorance
would cause our separation.

I didn’t know I was to study,
the Bible or to read the Word
and when I went to church
these needs I never heard.

I wasn’t aware He declared,
the path He wanted me on
I wasn’t aware I was lost
til many years were gone.

I wish when I were young,
someone would have told me
there was a path God designed
and a purpose He had for me!

Jeremiah 29:11
King James Version

“For I know the plans I have for you,
declares the Lord , plans for welfare
and not for evil,
to give you a future and a hope.”

God Knows ~

God Plans  for You used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

God knows what you need,
even before you do . . .
He knows the path and the way
that He has prepared for you.

God knows your future,
good things are in His plans
but you must trust and believe
and put your life in His hands.

God knows your troubles,
they are in His thoughts
so give Him your faith today
and let Him connect the dots.

God knows your desires,
He has a purpose and design
they are yours to possess
but to doubt ~ you must resign.

God knows your every need,
they are all in His hand
so there’s no need to worry
He’s got for you a perfect plan!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11
King James Version

“For I know the plans I have for you,”
says the Lord. “They are plans for good and
not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
