You whine and pine until you’re blue
Because your hopes and dreams don’t come true.
But, my child, must have faith to see;
Must trust and believe
That I have a different dream for you.
A dream to lift you from your downhill slope;
Although not all is in your scope
To fully understand
My true and wiser plan.
Yet it exists so you may have peace and new hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 (Holy Bible New International Version):
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.”
Awake, I arise to my feet;
Don my clothes and breakfast to eat.
Eager to start this day
So I hurry on my way
But without prayer, this morning is incomplete.
Tis Monday and a fresh start of a new week
And, reluctantly, I rolled and leaped to my feet.
I gazed at the busy day ahead
With anticipation and some dread.
A wintry chill in the morning air; not so sweet.
Stepped outside today into the warmer air
And the birds were singing in joyous flair.
Gone was the frigid cold
With temps of zero or below.
Ah, tis a hint of Spring when days are warm and fair.
