This poem is all about letting God control our lives. Anytime I tried to control my own life I always made such a mess of things. Even though I have made so many mistakes and feel I fail often, I have learned to keep the faith and know that God is in control. There will be times we try to run the show, but trust me, God is the one who holds the master key to our destiny and will set our lives on the right track when everything seems to be falling apart.

I always thought I knew all the correct things to say…
Then when I fell to my knees God told me he would show me the right way to pray.
I always felt I could find my way out of any tough problem that tried to bring me down…
All I had to do was just keep the faith and let God give me a smile when the world made me frown.

I always wondered if I could just take care of all my problems the way I felt was best…
Then I could hear a heavenly whisper cry out I know how to ease your worries with peaceful rest.
I always tried to find the right path to a new beginning that I thought was wise…
But no matter how hard I looked for direction God used many things to catch me by surprise.

I always took long walks here and there to try and find how to make my dreams come true…
God always said if you will just trust me, I will make sure people are good to you.
I always tried to do things my way because I felt my was was the only way to be…
Yet I could walk outside and feel God shout You must learn to hold on to me.

I always swayed from one way to the other trying to do the best I can…
It was God who threw me a life jacked and said all is well so quit trying to understand.
I always searched high and low to try and find the best ways for life to make sense…
Somehow God provided the road signs that worked together without such tragedy and suspense.

I always asked myself why do I have to be the one who always comes in last…
God just grabbed my hand and said I am the one who truly loves you and will make sure you overcome your past.
I always looked to everyone else to try and please them when I suffered in shame…
God said I know you are frustrated but lean on me and I will protect your good name.

I always felt like I was never good enough because I felt so insecure…
Yet God was the one who stood right beside me with His healing touch and miraculous cures.
I always spent so many nights crying so much because my life seemed so out of sync…
It was learning to let go and trusting God that helped me find the key to my true destiny.
