Ask him who found shelter in the torrential rain

or just about managed to catch the last train

Ask him who found reason to smile in spite of his pain

or could catch a good night’s rest even after all his hard work went in vain

He’ll tell you, ‘God works in mysterious ways’

And if you still do not believe

Ask him who found himself amidst his loss

or found the strength within to carry the burden of his cross

Ask him whose spirit was weary

but managed to move on despite life’s drudgery

You’ll have no doubt that God works in mysterious ways

If your heart ever grieved

And yet you are here today, it’s because you believed

If in a state of despair you saw a flicker of hope

that helped you cope

Then you know it’s true when they say, ‘ God works in mysterious ways’

If your mind ever felt ambushed with a zillion questions

and in that buzz you unearthed your most valuable lessons.

If a chance encounter with a stranger or if the words you read

cleared the weeds, growing in your head

Then you have no reason but to agree that God works in mysterious ways

And if you do, then maybe, today, you need to hear

this – ‘You have no reason to fear’

    1. Thank you so much. I felt it so strongly this morning that He does work in mysterious ways and it made me feel lighter. I had to document it.But I had no idea that the poem would be liked. Your words made me read it again. Thank you for loving the poem. It means so much to me.


      1. I am so glad it made the writing worth it. It really resonated with me. I will try and visit again. I don’t get around other peoples blogs as much as I used to, having gone blind. But Ivwill try. Smiles
