God Is My Supply


Whatever I want or believe I need,
God is my supply.
And from His inventory I am given.

Whatever I want or believe I need,
God is my supply.
But not until God is convinced and pleased,
That the doing of my deeds,
Have not been completely freed of obstacles.

I am tested daily and I know this.
And with faith I have taken risks to prove,
The experience provides me benefit.

I am tested most times until I get no rest.
To show God I will toil and sweat,
Without complaining in regret...
To express I am upset and yet,
God knows I attempt to do my best.

I am tested daily and I know this.
And with faith I have taken risks to prove,
The experience provides me benefit.

Whatever I want or believe I need,
God is my supply.
And from His inventory I am given.
BUT not always.
Since God decides if I should try a bit harder.

'But...'

~No 'buts'.
You want. I give. You do!
That's it.
No 'buts'.~

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
