BLESSINGS DEVISED BY GOD-BY HELEN STEINER RICE
God speaks to us in many ways,
Altering our lives, our plans, and our days,
And His blessings come in many guises
That He alone in love devises,
And sorrow, which we dread so much,
Can bring a very healing touch.
For when we fail to heed His voice,
We leave the Lord no other choice
Except to use a firm, stern hand
To make us know He's in command.
For on the wings of loss and pain,
The peace we often sought in vain
Will come to us with sweet surprise,
For God is merciful and wise.
And through dark hours of tribulation,
God gives us time for meditation,
And nothing can be counted loss
Which teaches us to bear our cross.
