Well Done Good and Faithful Servant

Happiness to fear;
Oh my dear!
The writing is on the wall.
Will there be a fall?

Contact Daniel it would seem
to interpret the dream.
Arrogance and pride
led to a kingdom in divide

Things of this world are easily lost
but things of God forever last
so be humbled in behavior
accept Christ the Savior.

Focus more on the things of God,
observe natures beauty in awe,
read the Word,
observe and be stirred.

Many benefits if one listens
and attends to ones conviction.
Lessons are told;
valued like silver and gold.

Written on the wall
in words not so small,
“Well done good & faithful servant”
for you have been so fervent.

This day with God,
continue to be awed,
stay focused on His presence,
for all His omnipresence.

He is not distant but near;
it is very clear,
and may get our attention
in many ways to mention.

A brilliant sunrise,
a field of flowers and butterflies,
grapes growing on a vine,
or bathing us in warm sunshine.
