Good Lord Willing


Good Lord Willing
By Rita Broden

‘Good Lord willing!’
Gram would answer
Never ‘yes’ or ‘no’
I understand this answer now
But it bugged me years ago
Gram studied hard the Word of God
And applied it to her life
That’s where she got instructions
On how to be mother, Gram, and wife
My Gram, she knew a secret!
Each day was a brand new start
You see, tomorrow may never come
And she knew that in her heart
So her answer, ‘Good Lord willing!’
Was the best that she could give
We’re not God that we should know
Just how long we’ll live!


 ‘And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.’
[Romans 8:28]
