Helen Steiner Rice is probably one of the most recognized poets in the Christian world and she is one of my favorites. Her ability to touch the heart spans all age and time.
Below is just one of my favorites that I thought I would share with you.
The Bend in the Road
Sometimes we come to life's crossroads
And we view what we think is the end.
But God has a much wider vision...
And He knows it's only a bend --
The road will go on and get smoother
And after we've stopped for a rest,
The path that lies hidden beyond us
Is often the path that is best.
So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load
And have faith in a brighter tomorrow.
You've just come to a bend in the road.
- Helen Steiner Rice
My friend if the road you are traveling seems difficult... and not like anything you had imagined. Do not grow anxious or worried... trust God to lead you in lush meadows and refreshing waters... a place where you can rest and draw closer to Him. He loves you and He wants only the best for you! Just let your spirit soak in... all of His goodness and His love. He will bring you through with blessings you might never had known... had you taken a path of your own choosing!
