My serious illness and hospitalization in 1987 made me realize that life is not really about us, but Him. Hope this poem inspires and draw you closer to Him. God Bless.

Itís Not About Us


Itís not about us

Life, I mean

Itís not about us at all

Itís about Him

The God who created

All that is

And youÖand me!


We struggle and strive

Worry and weep

For this and for that

And in the process lose our joy

When all we need

Is found in Him

Who knows our every need!


ďConsider the lilies how they grow,Ē said He

ďthey toil not, they spin not; and yet I say

unto you, that Solomon in all his glory

was not arrayed like one of theseÖĒ


This too, He said to reassure

ďIf then God so clothe the grass, which is today

in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven;

how much more will He clothe youÖ?Ē


While it is good to work and plan

Donít let struggle and strive

Worry and tears

Steal your joy

Put your trust in Him

Who promises to meet

 Your every need

But not necessarily

Your heartís desires!


Itís not about us, donít you see

Itís about Him

For He truly cares

For you...and me!

So, letís put our trust

In Him, shall we?

This is so true, Lena. Without Him, we would not have life and therefore, we need to place the Lord, first and foremost.
Thanks for sharing this poem,
