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
