Change in the Forecast

I saw a Facebook post that said, “We ask God to change our situation without knowing if He put us in that situation to change us.” That really spoke to me and birthed this poem.

Change in the Forecast

Before I ask my mighty God
To change my circumstance,
I need to ask if it’s His plan
To give my heart a chance
To change, to soften up some way
And possibly to break,
To mold me into something new
And better for His sake.
This pressure that I’m feeling now
May be the Lord at work
To help me root out hidden sin
Wherever it may lurk.
So, Lord, please help me see Your will
And persevere in this.
I know no matter what Your plan
I do not want to miss
The lesson You may have for me
That’s hidden in this pain.
I know whatever I may lose
Will be Your kingdom’s gain.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney

    I like to ask God “What do you want me to learn from this?”

      Someone on Facebook pointed out that perhaps we are going through something for someone else’s benefit, for them to learn something by watching how we go through it or to be touched or moved to help. We never know why, but just need to remember that God has His reasons and it is the best plan.
