To many, The Lord is no stranger, for He is The Great Rearranger,
Changing things in one's life, to draw them nearer to Jesus Christ,
Both those, who truly don't know, that God above, loves them so,
And those who have gone astray, to turn them back the other way.
The Lord God works in the family, through ways that we can't see,
In those who know The Lord, but God, by them has been ignored,
Leading them back to His Word, back to Truths that they've heard,
Guiding them out of darker days, back to the Savior and His ways.
God goes on using both of us, those, now walking in Christ Jesus,
To show His presence, in our life, as He leads men to Jesus Christ,
As God's Spirit guides our walk, so that our actions match our talk,
All for God's glory and His praise, as His Spirit guides all our ways.
God also helps those who know, Jesus Christ, to in His ways grow,
Not only to know the Word of God, but to live it out on earth's sod,
As He works through our situations, in our friendships and relations,
While the Truth God's Spirit shares, through our concerns and cares.
Parts of our life God will rearrange, this, in order to produce change,
A change not only in our hearts, but, change in others as He imparts,
Truth as The Holy Spirit engages, lives of others, God also changes,
Both, the heart and soul of a man, to move them to His Eternal Plan.
