The Things of God

Many times the things
We think look good
End up not so good
And such a falsehood.
Then things we don’t
Think will be good
End up being good
When truly understood.

If the things of God
Are what is cherished
Then we have all
As the soul is nourished.
Reading daily His Word,
Our prayer request,
And planning towards
Being at our best.

Over the course of life
All the great things
Don’t magically happen
But spring from our King.
Our ongoing commitment
To build momentum
For life and beyond
As we are devoted to Him.
