I came to this new land with little or no expectations at all;
I prayed and committed my days here into His mighty hands;
I thought I knew what He was capable of;
Until He showed me another breathtaking dimension of HImself;
What I wanted, He never gave me;
What He offered was more than I could imagine;
I always asked for what I thought was good;
But He always gave me what He knew was best for me.
Respect, favor, provision and protection rested on me;
Good health I enjoyed like the breeze of fresh air;
Because I had committed my ways to Him;
I wasn’t afraid to be myself anywhere-my reputation was HIs to keep.
I sometimes doubted what the future held for me;
And I forgot the One that I serve knows the end from the beginning;
So whatever I faced each day was my end manifesting itself;
My future unfolding before my unknowing eyes;
I left home ready for another memorable walk with God;
And I must say I have no regrets at all;
Even when He allowed me to stray off a little;
It was because there was something precious for me to learn.
