If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  ĖJames 1:5

Some things are hard to understand,
But we can rest with them in His hand.
When we canít see just where to go,
He guides in ways we donít even know.
At times like these, His peace He gives,
That we may know in our hearts He lives.
Now rest in Him, donít be dismayed,
You know your life at His feet is laid,
So smile for me, and do not be afraid.

We each are formed as vessels of
The careful work of our Fatherís love.
These earthen jars by grace contain
The treasure of all eternal gain.
We wonder why such fragile ware
The power of God and His glory bear,
But trust in Him for he has made
It sure to stand, His foundation laid.
So smile for me, and do not be afraid.

Sometimes we sink in faith so small
We wonder how God could love us at all.
But on great faith love does not depend.
No matter what, Heíll always be your friend.
But Jesus said, ďif you believe,
Ask in My name and you shall receive.Ē
Letís bow our heads as Jesus prayed,
And ask of Him, He will not upbraid,
So smile for me, and do not be afraid.
