This morning this little poem, which I have carried for YEARS, fell out of my Bible onto the floor.  It truly was No Mistake and I felt the need to share it here for you.  One of the words and comfort I received during the 4 day Holy Ghost conference I just attended at Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks was that Suzette went home to the Lord because the work God intended for her to accomplish has been accomplish.  I know that is true, and while she was in the hospital she confirmed that truth to me.  Then today, this little 2 1/4" by 4" poem falls out of my Bible!!!


My Father's way may twist and turn,
My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I'm glad I know,
He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I'll trust my Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.

Tho night be dark and it may seem,
That day will never break,
I'll pin my faith, my all in Him,
He maketh no mistake.

There's so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight far too dim,
But come what may, I'll simply trust
And leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift,
And plain it all He'll make,
Through all the way, tho dark to me,
He made not one mistake.

Hi there Susan. This is a beautiful poem and one that I will remember. God bless you and your family.

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God"

That's a wonderful poem.
Some years ago friends of ours lost their 4 month old son to SIDS. I always remember the message from that funeral, which was that we are all created with a purpose. As long as we are living, God has a purpose for us. When our purpose is completed, He takes us home. This baby's purpose was complete at 4 months, others may be in their 50's and some may not be completed until they are 100. I find this comforting in loss.
