Chess Pieces

Imagine, if we were but pawns on a board
in a game that God and His friends all played.
Life, as we know it, just wouldn’t be the same.
Then revelations would never be made.
He would carefully move us from square to square
not knowing what move would come next.
We would move as directed during the game
or else life would be bitter and vexed.
But, alas, this is how it already is
where God controls with His hand.
Destiny is set, He will win.
It is written and it is planned.
So, whenever unsure of what to do next
remember, you’re held in His hand.
Go with the flow, trust in the Lord!
It is written! It is planned!
