HE Keeps the Key!!!

Life is all about problems.  We all have problems in one form or another, those who don’t have any problems are in a cemetery. I’m checking our expenditures for 2007. Sobering when going through our checkbook balance to see what all our expenses were.  All good things, necessary to keep the fuel tank full in our house and car.  Insurance premiums need to be paid for our health, home and car.  Did I mention taxes and tithing? Yes, paid. Communication by using our phone and computer, all essential.  Airfare shows up in our credit card bill as well as hotel expenses and other costs involved with traveling as a “seasoned nomad.”  Kazakh nomad, that is. 8) 

  Did I mention electricity and other things we take for granted just because we can’t see it?  We don’t see God either but we are sure that God will make a way for us, we claim that promise to see us through to a financially viable 2008.  He holds the key for us.  Thank you Lord, because if we had the key, we’d be sure to lose it. 

Is there some problem in your life to solve,

Some passage seeming full of mystery?

God knows, who brings the hidden things to light.

          He keeps the key.

  Is there some door closed by the Father’s hand

Which widely opened you had hoped to see?

Trust God and wait—for when He shuts the door

          He keeps the key.

  Is there some earnest prayer unanswered yet,

Or answered NOT as you had thought ‘twould be?

God will make clear His purpose by-and-by.

          He keeps the key.

  Have patience with your God, your patient God,

All wise, all knowing, no long tarrier He,

And of the door of all thy future life

          He keeps the key.

  Unfailing comfort, sweet and blessed rest,

To know of EVERY door He keeps the key.

That He at last when just HE sees ‘tis best,         

Will give it THEE.
