In Charge

Words are not sufficient
to express my gratitude
for patience on your part
toward slow decisions to change.

I give you thanks, O Lord,
for powers I’ve never known,
and ask that thorns of weakness
be gone, and in their place,
a strength of mind and heart.
Three times and more I’ve pleaded,
desiring to overcome,
but met with heavenly silence.

Yes, grace, I know, is mine,
sufficient to the task,
but I’d prefer, if possible,
another path to victory.
Can I not choose my struggles?
I did not ask for these!

To you, O God, I render
all claims of being in charge.
To you, my will, my life,
my future, is in your hands.

Give peace in fiercest battles,
calm in troubled waters.
Be present, O my Father.
