What God Can Do Through You

Even in prison,
Joseph was put in charge.
God’s favor was with him;
His affluence would enlarge.

Life was not trouble-free
But the Lord gave kindness
And was with him in order
To handle any crisis.

He faithfully followed the Lord
And under his care,
There was great achievement
And others became aware.

You can do the same
In everything you do
By daily praying to the Lord;
Having faith to get you through.

Trusting in His timing,
Studying His Word,
Reflecting on how to apply it,
Knowing prayers are being heard.

Praying to receive the power
Using talents to build the Kingdom
You will have great success
By growing in His wisdom.

For you know Him by living for Him
And asking Him to walk with you.
He creates changes for you
And rewards you for what you do.

The favor of the Lord
Will turn around the hardships
So the challenges met in your life story
Will simply be written as postscripts.

    The blessing of God was on everything Joseph was in charge of and God gave success in whatever he did. This day with God, a poem to inspire lessons learned from Joseph on good work habits and leadership skills.
