The Lords Promise

The Lord made me a promise
I hope he will never break
He promised not to send to me
any more than I could take

Sometimes though I feel deep down
that he has sent to much
I pray throughout the day
but seem to never feel his touch

Though I carry on and do
the things I know I have to do
I feel alone and wander aimless
until another day is through

I complete the tasks before me
in the best way that I know
Stopping several times to pray
then back to my chores I go

I listen for a word from him
to show me that he is near
But silence takes ahold of me
and no sound do I hear

Then with a gentle whisper
he helps me  to understand
If I only look around I will see
the love that he has planned

God doesn't always show me
in the way that I would choose
How much he truly loves me
 and what without him I would lose
