Poem from the Valley

I am determined

To live in the present

Seeing now from the future

Looking back and saying,

“I was right.  God provided.  I’m so glad I never worried.”

Here I am, the trials start again

Eternal glory hangs in balance

And what we see is so small compared to what will be.

I keep my eyes in the unseen.

Generosity, trusting that He

Will provide.  I will not sin

By believing a lie

That He doesn’t care.

Recall the past!

I could be at the bottom of the ocean.

I could be still lost in Pennsylvania.

I have had a great life so far, and there’s no reason for it to stop.

It’s not wrong

To party on.
