When We Ask Why

At Noah's memorial, Aaron's grandmother gave us a framed poem. It has helped to read it occasionally. I read it again today and thought I would share.

When We Ask Why
God's beautiful plan
Is sometimes concealed,
But someday His purpose
Will be fully revealed.

Someday God's wisdom
Will make very plain
Why problems were permitted
And how He uses pain.

We'll see the Lord's purpose
From Heaven's point of view,
And we will understand
In ways we never knew.

Till we are home with God
Some answers have to wait.
"Lord, we'll trust and obey-
Lord, help us walk by faith."
-Perry Tanksley
