He Maketh No Mistake


It's Sunday morning, and Hurricane Irene has prevented us from leaving the house. So many people have prayed for those of us on the East Coast, and so far, the damage has been relatively minimal. So, I turned to the TV for an early morning dose of Bible teaching. I've never heard of Bill Purvis before. He had a good word about how we grow in the valley times of our lives, and not the mountain experiences. He then shared this poem. It is appropos as we weather the storm today. I pray it blesses you as you go through the valleys and storms of life!

He Maketh No Mistake
A.M. Overton

My Father’s way may twist and turn,
My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I’m glad I know,
He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I’ll trust the Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.

Tho night be dark and it may seem,
That day will never break,
I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him.
He maketh no mistake.

There’s so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight far too dim,
But come what may, I’ll simply trust
And leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift,
And plain it all He’ll make,
Through all the way, tho dark to me,
He made not one mistake.
