I awoke this morning filled with many worries and wishing all my troubles away.
I prayed to my Lord but didn’t really believe he would answer me today.
It was a long day ahead of me and I rolled out of bed so very reluctantly.
I ate a little breakfast and turned on some news.
Although storms and wind are predicted, the sky is a brilliant blue!
It was a sign of hope that God had left for me
if only I’d stop doubting and just believe.
I made my way to work helping people throughout the day
While all the time worrying and wishing my own troubles away.
I longingly check my mailbox at my work office
Hoping for some correspondence to ease my troubles a bit
But nothing is there so I continue the day with worries to bear
I help a few more people trying to ease their worries and woes
Get one problem solved, but a few more to go!
My day is almost complete, have just one more person to meet.
She has a complex dilemma and so we devise a plausible plan
To satisfy her worries and restore hopefulness once again.
Back to the office I go still troubling over my own woes
I check my mailbox one more time searching hard to see
Lo, a yellow piece of mail; ah, I then knew the Lord had answered me.
Why do I continue to worry so much; why do I not fully believe?
For the Lord is always listening and quietly watching over me.
And I’m reminded that he gives me plenty of reasons
To not doubt him but just keep on believing.
