Mining for Valuable Resources

Fulfilling promises
Of long-range aims,
God works in the background 
And always reigns.

So put your thoughts 
Upon the Word 
And follow the prompting
The Spirit has stirred.

To be led to a place
Where things do flourish 
Because His Word
Gets inside to nourish.

Deep inside the soul
To take away stress
With advice and bring
So much zest.

More than a treasure
Of silver and gold,
His Word provides
Riches untold.
