When Miracles Don’t Happen

An Original Work / June 28, 2018

When miracles don’t happen
Exactly when we hoped,
And things go on as normal;
We don’t know how to cope;

When troubles, disappointments,
Are foll’wing us around,
And sadness starts to linger,
And gladness turns to frowns;

When all the world around us
Is turning upside down,
And honesty is missing,
And faithfulness not found;

When liars and deceivers
Are pulling all their tricks,
And people start believing
Those who are really slick;

And, many who are faithful,
Are being treated bad,
Because they share the gospel,
And it makes people mad;

Then, we must look to Jesus.
He is our King of kings.
He is our Only Savior.
To Him our praises bring!

Our Lord will bring us comfort,
And He will show the way
That we must go to follow
Our Lord throughout the day.

We’ll trust Him with our future,
Believe He really cares,
Submit to all He purposed,
Our lives to His cross bear;

Believe in all He promised,
Surrender to His will,
And all that He has purposed,
He surely will fulfill.

Our Lord, completely faithful,
Has what is best in mind.
We will not be forgotten,
Our peace, in Him, we’ll find.

    1. Amy, Thank you! Glory to God!

      Oh, I just read the verse of the day on Biblegateway.com. It fits so perfectly with this poem:

      “The Lord will accomplish what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” Psalm 138:8 NASB


  1. Give God the glory Sue! I have been otherwise occupied, but thought I would stop by. I see you are continue to press into Him.
