On Keeping Our Focus...


 Though life is always full of surprises (many the kind we could do without) 😐
it is SUCH a consolation to know that One wiser and greater has 'got us'
no matter the kerfuffle and 'now what?!'


 Yes, even this late planting season God is in control!
We are poised on the brink of what we hope will be seeds in the soil!
Some cautious blooms are beginning to peek from their bud-beds...




Lord, let nothing fill our heads that fuels pride and vanity
But sink into our hearts instead the wonderment and truth of Thee
Where work and worry of this world will test us to our utter core
And make us realize there is still so much to be thankful for

Whatever we are born to bear since Eden’s sweat and toiling curse
Ought to make us humbly aware, no matter what, it could be worse
Because of Calvary and what was bought and wrought in our place
It wakes in us such awe, to see how blessed we are because of grace

Lord, help us learn to yield and rest our dreams and plans in higher hands
We cannot earn what matters most, then let our boast be Your commands
To guide, protect and keep us pure where it seems holy fear is lost
Your Word infallible and sure will keep secure the ship storm-tossed

Lord, let the prize we fix our eyes upon be something known, not seen
Make us wise to disguises lest we fall prey to deception’s scheme
And let nothing fill our heads that fuels pride and vanity
But sink into our hearts instead the wonderment and truth of Thee
