Plans I Have for YouImage courtesy www.freedigitalphotos.net

“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Poem written by Caroline Gavin

~*~

“I know the plans I have for you,

I know the things in store;

Remember that I love you,

My child whom I adore.”

“You need not ever worry,

You need not ever fear;

Remember I am with You,

Lo, I am always near.”

“Look onto the horizon,

See the sun shining bright?

Child, I walk with you,

I beautify all in My Light.”

“Take My hand, daughter,

In faith walk close to Me;

You shall see the good I plan

Now and for all eternity.”

In saying these words,

Jesus smiles and takes my hand;

How I look forward to seeing

All my Lord has planned!

Yea, Lord, I shall follow You,

Never to fret nor fear;

What have I to worry

When You are always near?

The trees clap with joy,

The clouds parade in the sky,

The flowers dance around me,

The birds sing on high.

Surely the world around

Whispers of Your great plan;

O, the sweet things You do,

I praise You, Son of Man.

Lead me where You wish,

I follow You wherever You go;

Joy is being in Your presence,

Only love You show.

Wow, thank you so very much, Carol!

I am humbled, and I give glory to God!
May you continue to share your God-given gifts - one of which is surely encouragement!
Abundant blessings always!

I admire your ability to write poetry.  Here is my confession - When I 
was in the 8th grade, I had an assignment that required I write a poem.  
My sister wrote it for me!  She is really good at poetry, and I pretty 
much stink.  You, my friend, have the gift.

Thanks for sharing!

Carol, thank you so very much for your beautiful comment on my poem! Yes, God has wonderful plans in store for you, and I am grateful to see you trust in Him. His love is shining through you! May He bless you, the sales of your recently-released book and all that you do for His Kingdom!

Caroline - your poem is so appropriate for this season of my life.  God is bringing about big changes, and I must trust Him to work His plan.  After all, "I know the plans I have for you".  Thanks for making me think!
