He Maketh No Mistakes!

The other day, I was in my car listening to a radio program, when I heard this poem being read.  I’ve since learned that it’s a poem that’s been around since 1932.  The poem is beautiful, and once you read the story behind it, it’s even more so!  It has encouraged me a lot!  I hope it does the same for you……

In 1932, My grandfather, A.M. Overton, was a pastor of a church in Mississippi with a wife and three small children. His wife was pregnant with their fourth child but when it came time for delivery, there were complications and both she and the baby died. During the funeral service, the preacher officiating the service noticed my grandfather writing something on a piece of paper. After the service the minister asked him about it, and he handed him the paper with a poem he had just written which he titled, “He Maketh No Mistake”.

“He Maketh No Mistake”

My Father’s way may twist and turn My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I’m glad to know, He maketh no mistake.
My cherished plans may go astray, My hopes may fade away,
But still I’ll trust 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’s 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.

– A.M. Overton, 1932
