Who Is In Charge

Bear no grudge to anyone, nor fear man’s puny wrath

Who makes the thunders roll, or quiet it’s rumbling sounds
Who breathes the breath of life, or takes it with a word
Who makes the winds to blow, or calms the troubled seas
Who fed the children of Israel with manna, when from Egypt they did flee
Who feeds the lilies of the fields, who give the birds their seeds
Who fills the rain with nourishment, then on the fields they gentle fall
Who makes the goats to bring forth kids and the sheep to have its kind
Who makes a woman to have a child and a man the father of it be
Who holds the seas to shore and the river banks from overflowing
Who spreads the stars in space and holds the moon in its place
Who gives earth an axis, so it can revolve around the sun
Who made the sun to rule the day and the moon to shine by night
Who was the light of day to wondering Israel and a flaming fire by night

The Lord, strong and mighty in battle, the Lord of Host is He
So let no one scare you into thinking, they have your life in hand
Only the God of Heaven can say how and where you go
When you put your trust in Him and your faith in Him is whole
He the maker of us be and the keeper of our ways
Bless the Lord for all His grace, in Heaven He prepares for us a place

    Awesome, dear Joy! Amen! Only He has the power to give and take away, for Him and by Him, everything was made. Good to see you here today, even if just for a little while. I know that you'll be back in full swing shortly. Much love, Annalise

    We need to remember this, Joy. People may try to intimidate us and make us feel as though they hold our lives in their hands, but only God decides how our life will go and by placing our faith in him, we can feel the blessings of his grace. Very nicely stated feelings. There is only one answer to all of the questions you pose. Love, Carolyn
