Yes, Lord!

I came across this poem written by Ann Blocher during the years she struggled with cancer.  She eventually went home to be with the Lord but left this poem as a legacy.

Yes, Lord! Yes and Amen!

Can you trust Me, child?
Not only for ultimate eternity,
of which you know next to nothing,
and so are not tempted to meddle-
But for the little span of you life between…
the Now and Then, where you envision
decline and separations and failures,
impairments, pain, bereavements, disappointments-
Do you find Me qualified to be Lord of your last days?
Oh-yes, Lord! YES, Lord! Yes and amen!

Can you trust Me, child?
Not only to synchronize the unthinkable
intricacies of creation-
But to work together for good the gravities
and tugs within your little orbit,
where your heart is pulled by needs
and lacks you wish, but are destitute, to fill-
Do you find My resources adequate
to feed both the sparrow and you?
Oh-yes, Lord! Yes, Lord! Yes and amen!

Can you trust Me, child?
Not only for the oversight of nations
and creations not of this world-
But for those beloved ones I committed
to you and you committed to Me-
Do you believe Me trustworthy to perform
the good work begun in them
until the Day of Jesus Christ?
Oh-yes, Lord! Yes, Lord! Yes and amen!

 Why is it so easy to trust God with the big things like our salvation, but when it comes to the everyday trials we think we can do it alone.

What a glorious reminder of our insignificance and the love our heavenly Father to care for us and meet our every need.
