God's Ways - Poem by Joyce E. Shafer

God's ways are so mysterious
But His beauty you can see,
By the way He weaves a pattern
In the lives of you and me.

Oft-times the way seems weary
Seems more than we can bear,
But if you take your cares to Jesus
You'll find that He does care.

Many times we face our trials
So that in our faith we may grow,
For our Father watches over us
Because He loves us so.

He'll take that heavy burden
That's tearing at your heart,
Weave it into His pattern
And a building He will start.

He's walking there beside you
You'll find He's very near,
He'll help you make decisions
Make the answer very clear.
