I Am Learning, Lord

My life has taken many falls 
And tumbles 'long the way. 
The many trials have left me 
In a sure state of dismay. 
For with each trial, I tried alone 
To tend, and soothe, and mend, 
Instead of giving them to God - 
And on Him just depend ... 

But, I am learning, Lord. 

It seems that I was determined 
to carry all the load. 
I longed for smoother pathways. 
Yet, I walked a rocky road. 
Little did I understand, 
God waited patiently 
To pave a new beginning 
With a better life for me. 

But, I am learning, Lord. 

It took a real disaster 
To bring me to my knees; 
To finally call upon the Lord 
And say, "God help me, please." 
He can, with no delaying, 
With strong arms that could hold - 
The weight of all my burdens; 
He gladly took the load. 

And, I am learning, Lord. 

What a needless cross I carried, 
All because I could not see - 
What a friend I have in Jesus, 
And the love He has for me. 
Peace I find when troubles hover, 
Though' the outcome is unknown. 
For if yet the road is rocky, 
I won't walk it all alone. 

For, I am learning, Lord.
