Diary Entry || Viewpoints



Sometimes 
It takes a while
For our prayers to seem to work
We see it
From our narrow viewpoints
And not from God's
Who sees it perfectly
Much better than we do
When we're tempted 
To give up
To give in
To anger
And hate
And bitterness
We should remember
How narrow
Our viewpoint really is
And how His plans
Are so much better
Than ours 

These are just some scattered thoughts, jotted down in  poem form, and probably written at midnight. But you know what? They're absolutely true! Our viewpoints as humans are so narrow. We don't see the big picture. We don't see what's really going on, what's really God's plan. So that's why we need to rely on Him in every situation- whether we think  we know what's going on or not. You'll never go wrong trusting Him! That reminds me of Proverbs 3:5-6- "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths."  That is my favorite Bible verse, for so many reasons. It applies to every area of  of our lives.  
Keep trusting in the Lord, and don't count on your own view of things! That sounds like a good paraphrase. :) 


I hope you enjoyed reading these rather scattered thoughts of mine! Keep trusting in Him, and thanks for reading!

  3. Oh i love this so much, you're absolutely right. We sometime have no idea where God is taking us or what's happening, except that all things will work together for good according to His purpose. Luckily, that's all we need to know. Thanks for this great reminder, and your beautiful words!
