Sometimes God takes away our props
that we might lean on Him,
allows temptations, so we’ll grow
and triumph over sin.

Sometimes He takes away our strength
for doing earthly things
to rest our bodies that our souls
may soar on eagle’s wings.

Let’s not resent it when He says,
“Come ye apart – Be still”
or chafe at disappointments
that are His sovereign will.

Oh, let’s not doubt or question “Why?”
with unexplained delays,
but keep on soaring ‘neath His wings
with gratitude and praise!

–Alice H. Mortenson
