If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

He Maketh No Mistake

He Maketh No Mistake
-A. M. Overton

My Father’s way may twist and turn,
My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I’m glad I know,
He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plan may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I’ll trust in my Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.

Tho’ night be dark and it may seem,
That day will never break,
I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him,
He maketh no mistake.

There’s so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight far too dim,
But come what may, I’ll simply trust
And leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift,
And plain it all He’ll make.
Through all the way, tho’ dark to me,
He made not one mistake.

My husband used this poem in his sermon Sunday and I realize once again that it all comes down to "Do we trust Him or not?"  I choose to trust Him, even in the hard times because my God makes no mistake.  What about you?


  1. me too! I choose to trust Him. love this poem!

  2. Oh my goodness... how beautiful are those words...

  3. WHEW, glad I didn't have my makeup on yet. thanks.

  4. Bam! You're stepping on my toes. I'm just having trouble accepting the fact that they can't fix this little heart problem of mine. I know God has a plan and a purpose, but it's tough being ok with that at the moment. You know?
