A Beautiful Surprise

A Beautiful Surprise  by Elizabeth Veldboom Beautiful Surprise

When she saw the test was positive, she started to cry.

Thought about her boyfriend, an option, and a lie.

Got down on her knees, sent a prayer to the sky.

It looked like the very thing to ruin her life,

But now she’d never give up being a mama or a wife.

Because in the center of His will is the safest place to be,

And it’s here we start to see:

That sometimes love comes in disguise,

And it’s such a beautiful surprise.

When he got sick, the diagnosis looked bad,

He spent some time frustrated, spent some time mad.

Wrote a letter to God, demanding what He had.

But he made it through,

And even better, he’s right with his kids now too.

Because in the center of His will is the safest place to be,

And it’s here we start to see:

That sometimes love comes in disguise,

And it’s such a beautiful surprise.

The homeless man kept her from taking her life that night,

At the time nothing else seemed right.

Alone in her darkness, she’d never seen the light.

He looked like the guy who wanted to ruin her every plan,

But now she’s so thankful to that man.

Because in the center of His will is the safest place to be,

And it’s here we start to see:

That sometimes love comes in disguise,

And it’s such a beautiful surprise.

His ways are not our ways,

His thoughts are not our thoughts.

And when He gives the opposite of what we pray,

We often feel betrayed.

Jesus asked, “Father, let this cup pass from me.”

But in the center of His will is the safest place to be,

And it’s here we start to see.
