My Father Planned it All

These words ministered to my heart today in a special way, and I'm compelled to share them with you.

"My Father Planned it All"
by Harriett Pierson

What though the way be lonely
And dark the shadows fall,
I know where e’er it leadeth
My Father planned it all.

There may be sunshine tomorrow;
Shadows may break and flee.
‘Twill be the way He chooses--
My Father’s plan for me.

I sing through the shade and the sunshine;
I’ll trust Him whatever befall.
I sing for I cannot be silent;
My Father planned it all.

He guides my faltering footsteps
Along the weary way;
For well He knows the pathway
Will lead to endless day.

A day of light and gladness,
On which no shade will fall;
‘Tis this at last awaits me,
My Father planned it all.

No matter what we face, may our heart's attitude be that of the Psalmist who declared, "The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation" (Psalm 118:14).
