Trust Me

“Trust me”
God says, “trust me”
Over and over again.
We lean on Him
Depend on Him
And pray for confusion to end.

“Trust me”
And He leads us to journey’s end.
Through pain and suffering
Hardship and woe,
He takes us to places
We’d never go
And says “trust me.”
“We’ll walk down the path together
I’ll take you by the hand.
I’ll be with you and stay with you
Until you’re able to stand.”

Even then – “Just trust me;
Forever and a day.
I’ll guide you in and lead you home
So you’ll never go astray.”

“Trust me,
Your heavenly Father,
Because you know you can.
I know what’s best;
And will give you rest
If you trust me with my plan.”

This poem for life needs only the application of God’s Word. Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
