Why It Had to Be

I didn't used to care much for poems but the older I get, I seemed to have developed a fondness for them. I came across the below poem and it seems to be appropriate during this time so I am sharing it with you. I pray it will be a blessing to you.

May God be with you and continue to bless you through these times and remember you are not alone. There are people all over the world going through this pandemic but most importantly, as long as you have a relationship with Jesus, He is with you through this and everything to come.

Why It Had to Be (written by Lynn Fenimore Nuzzi)

Dear Child of God, please realize

No Eden here have we!

But for our good and future good –

Some sorrow has to be.

How all things will work out best,

Though presently not seen –

Still He comforts through the valleys,

If on His arm we lean!

When in trials and tribulations

It’s hard for you and me,

To understand how good will come –

Why such things must be!

But though we’re blind to good right now,

Our God still works His plan;

So don’t lose heart, but trust Him yet –

All things are in His hand!

If Him we love, all turns to good,

And someday we will see

How all worked together in God’s holy plan

And why it had to be!
