There are days when fog never lifts,
When dreams turn to ash
And relationships twist into ugly shapes.
You hoped for so much!
Your dreams were larger than life,
Hope fell flat and you are shocked at time gone by…
Looking back…wanting a life do-over.
Trouble is you forgot Who it is that plans life
And though you did your best,
Things…life…got out of control.
Your life, your influence…over others.
Then you step back and remember…
Your life and its destiny are not up to you.
That you can’t change what is past,
Or make others change.
Tell yourself—it’s not up to you to police the world,
To stress when some are up to no good.
The God of the Universe will bring us all to our knees
…if we have not gone there yet.
Take heart! Be brave and courageous,
But don’t play God; don’t try to make people mind.
Pray, praise, have joy, live life and still love large.
