Things Work Out
-By Edgar A. Guest
Because it rains when we wish it wouldn’t,
Because men do what they often shouldn’t,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.
Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we’d like to play
Some of us whimper along life’s way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.
Because we cannot forever smile,
Because we must trudge in the dust awhile,
Because we think that the way is long
Some of us whimper that life’s all wrong.
But somehow we live and our sky grows bright,
And everything seems to work out all right.
So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Somehow, it seems, all things work out.
Oh how I love that poem. It is such a great reminder that everything will be okay, it truly will. I have shared this next quote more times than I can count, but I share it because it has helped me through more difficult days than I ever care to mention and that is:
“Everything will be okay in the end,
If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
Things truly will work out in the end the way they are meant to if we just do our best to do our part and then turn the rest over to God. Then trust Him! Let him do his part. He is amazing at it and he always has your best interest at heart, so do what you can and then turn it over to him. When it truly is the end it will be something better than you could have ever imagined it would be.
Have an amazing good day!
