October 9, Today’s thought — Commit Thy Way

Waiting for a visit. . .

Good Morning

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him;
and He shall bring it to pass Psalm 37:5

“Commit thy way unto the Lord and trust!
Ah, it is here we fail! We give the wheel
Of our small bark to Him; but then we trust
Our hand upon His hand,
And dare to stand
Beside our Master, lest He wreck our keel.

“Commit thy way unto the Lord and trust!”
Leave all to Him; believe He knows thy course,
Thy dangers, and thy safety–all–then just
Abandon all to Him;
So shalt thou skim,
Borne briskly on before the Spirit’s force.

“Commit thy way unto the Lord and trust!”
There is an “also” we too oft forget,
And so are plagued and worried. Oh, we must
“Trust also,” then our soul
Shall cease to roll
In restlessness and reason and regret!

Commit! and then, committed, trust His Word!
Has He not said that He will bring thee through?
Trust His strong arm; and when wild storms are heard.
Believe He holds them still
By His strong will.
Trust Him., the Wise, the Faithful, and the True.

Trust Him to manage all that thou dost now
Commit to Him–the ship–the sails–the sea–
The sailors, thy strange crew. And ask not how
He will do for thee.
But trustful be.
Lie down and rest from anxious worry free.

Trust God for your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
