Disappointment - His Appointment: An anonymous poem

Today's post features a poem I read recently that was written by an anonymous author.  I figured since we had been studying about forgiveness this past week, this poem would fit quite well.  May the Lord bless you on this day dear reader.

Dissapointment - His Appointment
Author: Unknown 
Disappointment - His Appointment
 
Change one letter - then I see
 
That the thwarting of my purpose
 
Is God's better choice for me
 
His appointment must be blessing
 
Tho' it may come in disguise
 
For the end from the beginning
 
Open to His wisdom lies
 
Disappointment - His Appointment
 
No goodwill He withhold
 
From denials oft we gather
 
Treasures of His love untold
 
Well He knows each broken purpose
 
Leads to fuller deeper trust
 
And the end of all His dealings
 
Proves our God is wise and just
 
Disappointment - His Appointment
 
Lord, I take it, then, as such
 
Like clay in the hands of a potter
 
Yielding wholly to thy touch
 
My life's plan is thy molding
 
Not one single choice be mine
 
Let me answer, unrepining
 
Father, not my will, but thine

  3. Dear Richard:

    Thanks for taking the time to read the blog today. My prayer is that anything I write be used by people for the glory of Jesus Christ. I appreciate you letting me know about Phil Keaggy's song. He is a wonderful artist. My wife enjoys him especially. Blessings!
