"The Master Plan&Quot; - Poem by Sharyn Harms

The one thing about suffering, you see,
Is that the bad always brings the good out in me.
It makes me realize how very blessed I am,
When I return to my Father once again.
Sometimes you need to leave home to realize how good it looks,
You can't learn that kind of value by reading it in books.
The Father lets us journey a little way,
But, He always watches us day-by-day.
He loves to see us as we grow in Him,
Because that is truly how our spiritual life does begin.
He promises He won't give us more than we can take,
But, He doesn't say that we won't truly break.
By breaking us down He intercedes,
We need to know what He felt like to bleed.
You see, our Father, suffered in pain,
But, His suffering was not totally in vain.
He gave His life so that we might live,
It was His master plan for our sins to forgive.
