Father, I Know That All My Life
Father, I know that all my life
Is portioned out for me,
And the changes that are sure to come
I do not fear to see:
I ask Thee for a present mind,
Intent on pleasing Thee.
I would not have the restless will
That hurries to and fro
Seeking for some great thing to do
Or secret thing to know;
I would be treated as a child
And guided where I go.
Wherever in the world I am,
In whatsoe'er estate,
I have a fellowship of hearts
To keep and cultivate.
I ask Thee for daily strength
To none that ask denied,
A mind to blend the outward life,
While keeping at Thy side;
Content to fill a little space,
If Thou be glorified.
There are briers besetting every path,
That call for patient care;
There is a cross in every lot,
And an earnest need for prayer;
But a lowly heart that leans on Thee
Is happy anywhere.
In service which thy will appoints
There are no bonds for me;
For my inmost heart is taught the truth
That makes thy children free.
A life of self-renouncing love
Is one of liberty.
~By Anna L. Waring, 1850~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my
days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
God knows all of our days. He knows the end from the beginning.
There is nothing hidden from Him. And as God's children, we see His
hand guiding our lives and is working all things out for our good.
We are nothing apart from Him. We know our own frailty
and His strength.
As the poem says, a lowly heart that leans upon the Lord is happy
anywhere. He is the source of our joy; and life has no meaning apart
from Him. We need not fear the future for He holds the future in His
hands and will lead us safely onward till we reach the other side in glory!
Praise the name of Christ Jesus!
