Beyond Us


There are many happenings in life that we cannot understand.
It all seems completely beyond us, and we cannot grasp life’s plan.
Events and circumstances, over which we have absolutely no control
Seem to forever and eternally hold sway over our soul.

Age and wisdom supply some information concerning this,
But, even then, at times we seem lost and completely miss
The overall picture of life on earth, and we’re still saying,
“Lord, it’s beyond us.” That’s why we’re still praying.
