God alone decides

Glance at where I am today;
I never thought
I would be;
Yet, here I am
Right in the heart
Of it;
Not that I should not be,
But that I thought
It was for others
Not for me;
Now I know
Nothing is for others;
That cannot be ours;
What can happen to another
Can happen to us.
The blessings that others have
Can equally be ours.
God alone decides;
He alone has the final say
In everything and in all things.
