Another poem from: A Mother's Heart

When Iím tempted now to worry

And yield to fears again,

That is when I must remember

Her heart is in Your hands.

You envisioned and designed her,

Crafted the Master Plan,

And though she often wanders

Her heart is in Your hands.

My child may run, and she may hide

Among the worlds affairs,

She may look the other way

And pretend she doesnít care,

That Our Father calls to her by name

In every foreign land,

Yet in her deepest parts she knows

Her heart in His hands.

Her life is fragile, on display

For all the world to see

With modern apparatuses

And darn technology.

She thinks her plans originate

From every dayís pursuit

Of fun, and laughter, she hesitates

To winnow out the truth.

A target for the evil schemes

Of the one who came to kill,

Is every child of God that strays

From their Designerís will.

I know his power, I know his plans

And yet, I know defeat

Awaits the enemy of God

And so...I pray, I seek

The heart of God, His perfect will,

And vigilant Iíll stay,

Down on my knees, in heart and soul

And every single day

Iíll speak her name and intercede

With Our Father God above

To keep her by His mercy

And†win her with His love.

And come what may, of this

Iím sure, on this Iíll take my stand,

I have no need to fret or fear--for

Her heart is in His hands.

I have seen both my girls come back to a deep faith in God and dedication to His will since I penned these words. The lesson here is...don't give up. Don't ever give up on God or on your children.

Linda, this is excellent! It touches me deeply, having survived worrisome times with some of my children. I relied heavily on knowing that God loved them even more than I did.
God bless you and your child.

I agree their hearts are in His hand and He holds them very dear!! As much as we love them our love can't compare to His amazing love for us and our children. Love ya, Donna
