A Bend In The Road

When we feel we have nothing left to giveAnd we are sure that the “song has ended”–When our day seems over and the shadows fallAnd the darkness of night has descended.Where can we go to find the strengthTo valiantly keep on trying,Where can we find the hand that will dryThe tears that the heart is crying–There’s but one place to go and that is to GodAnd, dropping all pretense and pride,We can pour out our problems without restraintAnd gain strength with Him at our side–And together we stand at life’s crossroadsAnd view what we think is the end,But God has a much bigger visionAnd He tells us it’s only a bend–For the road goes on and is smoother,And the “pause in the song” is a “rest”,And the part that’s unsung and unfinishedIs the sweetest and richest and best–So rest and relax and grow stronger,Let go and let God share your load,Your work is not finished or ended,You’ve just come to “a bend in the road”.~ Helen Steiner Rice ~
