My Way, or His Way

Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace” — John 16:33

There was a time when
I did things my own way.
My way seemed reasonable
to me
then. But
there came a day when
I had to admit
my way wasn’t reasonable
at all. My way
never led
to life and joy,
to freedom or peace.

Thank God that since that day,
Jesus has proved to me
His way is reasonable.
He’s shown me
again and again
that when I
do things His way,
it always leads
to life and joy,
to freedom and peace.

will I now
trust Jesus,
and do things
His way,
even when
it’s hard to see
His reasons?
