But if Not

Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

John 16:24 NKJV



I heard this in a sermon one night that was all about allowing God control and knowing that with Him in control, your life would be so much better.  I really liked what this poem had to say so thought I would share it.

But If Not

Author Unknown


I’m trusting Lord in You

Whatever is Your will to do

Send grief, or pain, or suffering

Just send me a song to sing

I know your power to deliver in love

You rule all the universe above

I know all things will work for good

And yet But if not

By Thy grace I will serve Thee

By Thy love I will serve thee

I cannot look to tomorrow-only today

All things will work for good in Heaven someday

My belief cannot be based on my trials

You’re coming in just a little while

Though the night may seem cold

You know the way I take; I will come forth as gold

Until then help my faith not to waver

In light of eternity forever

Help my belief to stay strong even yet

By They Grace may I say:

But if Not.
