Thought For The Month

Let Go And Let God

As children bring their broken toys,
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
because he was my friend.
But then, instead of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help,
with ways that were my own.
At last, I snatched them back and
cried, "How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said,
"What could I do?
You never did let go."
