Job 38-39

          If the Lord asks me to wait
          Till I reach that pearly gate
          Then wait I must.
          Though my heart says I should hurry,
          Still my Lord says not to worry,
          I must trust...

          "O, My child ~ thou art Mine,
          You must seek My will, not thine,
          Do not fret thyself about what is to be...
          For thy future have no dread,
          Leave it in My hands instead,
          For I alone know what is best for thee.

          "Dwell on what My hands have made,
          Count the stars My hands have stayed
          To spin in motion...
          Guess the secrets that I keep
          In the mysteries of My deep
          Uncharted ocean.

          "Can you make the grass to sprout,
          Paint the colors in a trout,
          Or make the brook sing?
          When do mountain goats give birth,
          Who brings flowers out of earth,
          Or gives the bird wing?

          "Do you give the horse his might,
          Can you change the day to night,
          Or make a rainbow?
          At My wish the eagle soars,
          I command the rain that pours,
          And make the wind blow.

          "This and far more I can do...
          Am I big enough for you
          To trust your life to?
          Is My universe too small
          To be trusted with your all?
          Child, taste of Me and see
          How much I love you!"

          ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

          "O, taste and see that the Lord is good..."
          (Psalm 34:8, KJV)
