Ann's Corner

A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

The Good of My Soul


The Good of My Soul

Take my beating heart Lord…
Calm it, soothe it…
Help me to understand it is all for the best…
Your design is perfect for my life…
I do not need to be restless and fighting Your perfect plan
Because it is borne out of Your love for me
And the good of my soul.

Hush the tempest of thought and unruly desire
Gentle, patient
Instruct me in Your ways Lord as delight to my soul
Lead me in Your perfect path
I yield my impatient will to the desire of Your heart for me
Because I want only what You have for me
For the good of my soul

It makes me particularly happy
Glad, content
That I can choose to walk in Your will, in Your path
Let me rest in You
Knowing that You will carve the deepest joy out of it that I have ever known
Because Your grace is sufficient for me
And is the good of my soul.
