ART & POETRY BY PAUL T. & KATHY BOECHER©
When life seems overwhelming and the hope for peace has drifted,
We struggle with the discontent and pray for burdens lifted,
But our days on earth are numbered, our time is soon gone by,
We fill our hours with wrong pursuits and then we simply die.
But when you travel with the Lord, your outlook quickly changes,
The goals you set, the plans you make, He often rearranges,
We have no clue to what’s ahead, but in His master plan,
We know what He’s prepared for us can’t be achieved by man.
His blueprint for our path is often filled with worldly strife,
We struggle on and trust in Him throughout our earthly life,
Our dreams are often shattered, we wonder where is God,
We fail to trust, we oft give up, when through this life we plod.
But when it all is over, when breath departs our frame,
In confidence we rest in Him who took away our shame,
The shelter of that valley soon brings great calm and rest,
To be with all the saints of God, the brightest and the best.
