I Was Not Made For This



I was not made for this, Lord:
   I cannot hold
   the future in my hands
   and craft it to meet
   the needs of those I love.

I was not made for this Lord:
  I cannot turn
  sorrow into joy
  or carry the burdens
  on these frail shoulders.

I was not made for this Lord:
  I cannot change
  circumstances or hearts
  or make dreams
  come true.

I was made for this:
  to find peace
  and rest in You
  to trust You to
  work together all things
  for my good

I was made for this:
  to seek You
  with all my heart
  to love You and others
  as myself
  to be wholly Yours.

Blessings,
Linda
