God is always in control,
Watching faithfully over every soul;
Joyfully on our way we should roll.
Most of the time the rocks are rough,
That means our feet should really be tough;
Calloused, used to trouble, sure enough.
Calloused doesn't mean uncaring,
We should always be bewaring;
With temptations our paths are sharing.
For easy paths we should not lust,
Lessons God teaches us are just;
In bad and good trust Him we must.
If on life's shores you find a safe cove,
Rest a little, do not onward shove;
God placed it there to show His love.
Over the past we should not repine,
For the future we must not whine;
Everything is part of God's design.
