Illusion

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

As no one has power over the wind to contain it, so no one has power over the time of their death (Ecclesiastes 8:8; NIV).

 

Lord,
We can’t control
The realities of illness,
Disappointment,

Sorrow,
Loss,
And death,

Although we like
To think we can,
When life goes well.

Help us let go
Of our futile yearning
For control,

As thinking
We control our lives
Is an illusion.
