Be Glad

The unexpected pruning of the affairs of life may bring realities beyond our choice.
Listen for the inner voice when reality goes by, grab ahold, and travel along, by
giving it your best.

Make Ready

Review the preparations of yesterday.
Was it truly making ready, this way?
Be glad there is One who knows tomorrow,
Was He truly showing the way?

The Unexpected Comes

When the unexpected comes into life's play
Remember the One who knows the way.
Did we miss the lesson yesterday?
The pruned tree that bears, is the one to stay.


There may have been branches lost,
Replacement effort brings its cost.
More branches can bring more fruit.
True reality brings its truth.

Beyond Our Choice

When reality reaches beyond our choice
Listen closely for the inner voice.
Did the lily choose to rise again?
It acquired new observation of life to win?

The Guiding Hand

The whole world waits for the Master's hand,
But do they know His mighty plan?
God's word testifies of the Son.
In Him, salvation is won,.


Effort, Llsten, Preparation, Replacement, Unexpected, Wait, Win
