Keeping The Faith


Allowing God to takeover
My life results in faith
With hope that He will continue 
To bless me with unknown 
Wealth of opportunity
Circumstance and provision 
As being human in a physical
Universe with tendencies 
To fear and doubt the world
And it's intention creates
A mountain to climb 
For they know not what
They do
Which leaves me wondering 
What the next day will bring
As life revolves in a kaleidoscope 
Of situations that at times befuddle 
Me to continue drawing strength
And courage that only God can 
Provide, bringing me to rest in Him
And quietly watch for the grace
Working even though it seems 
As nothing is happening
I know it is.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
