Heaven Sent?

Della Smith

I didn’t like the way it went
It surely was improper
This couldn’t have been heaven sent
The lies, the tricks, the horror!

But then I thought of Joseph
Who was sold out by his brothers
I remembered that he suffered
So that he could rescue others

And I also thought of Daniel
He didn’t have a say so
He had to live in Babylon
When he wished he could have said NO

The situation you are in
May not be your ideal
But when you’re in the furnace
You will find out God is real

So don’t complain or grumble
You’re only in a season
Trust in the one who’s in control
In time, you’ll know the reason

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Genesis 50:20

The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret. Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon. Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king. 2:47-49
