Everything Happens For A Reason

just when you rack your brains,
and ask why..oh why..
it should strike you quick,
and when it does, it makes you sigh...
that every thing happens for a reason,
its a part of God's great design,
what you want will happen,
may take a year or a season,
have faith and persevere,
suddenly it will appear,
the sign, the symbol,
you have been praying for
that you have been searching
but its there, has been lurching,
in the shadows, waiting for the correct moment to appear,
God's help comes to you,
it may be in any form,
a line in a book, a situation,
a movie that comes on your tv screen,
or even in the form of a new person, his creation,
Hes always there, with us, in moments of our despair
its we who dont have faith, dont persevere,
He sends us succour, in some form or the other,
He is our loving Father and also the gentle mother,
when we recognize his gentle manipulations,
his created situations, to heal our hearts and help us forget,
no other source, or other means can we ever beget,
such complete peace and love....such healing
than surrendering to Him and that wonderful feeling,
that He is always there, for you and me, for every being
its we who are blind, unfeeling and unseeing,
so seek and you shall find..
He's there, in front and behind,
a quiet faith, unshaken and firm,
is all that you need to learn,
and life is easier to bear and live,
lets not only take, lets give and give,
prayer fulfills and heals,
it may take a days, a month or a season,
but remember, everything happens for a reason.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
