The Secret

Society takes God out
And there is no success.
Uncover the secret.
Prayer helps to reassess.

Pray for wisdom.
Put God into all you do.
Carry out the vision
And He will get you through.

Dream big and carry out these dreams.
Integrate faith with way of life.
See a preferred future
And hope for no more strife.

Fulfill the mission God has for you.
Solomon was given the gift of wisdom and knowledge.
He led Israel into prosperous times.
Discover your own strengths to acknowledge.

Provide the spark to get others going.
Think of ways you can use your gift.
You have something special to offer
That will give society a lift.

Be confident in the body of Christ;
For even its weakest link becomes strong;
Because of the Savior;
Who never did anything wrong.

Choose advisors carefully
When there are questions;
And advice is needed;
They can give many suggestions.

The Cross gives answers
And is God’s plan for our day.
Hold strong the mission He has for you.
Success is found in following His way.
