    As the days grow on,
    Tis time that I prepare,
    For the molding of a vessel
    By the Potter's hand of care.

    My soul is withdrawing
    Unto a season of depth.
    No one will understand it,
    Not even myself.

    Sometimes I'll be quiet,
    But nothing will be wrong.
    God is gently cleansing,
    Some old will soon be gone.

    He's given me His insight
    By the Spirit of His word.
    Now I listen to a depth
    That I have never heard.

    This is a time
    That I've set aside,
    To let God deal
    With my sin and pride.

    So don't despair
    If I don't grin in your face.
    I am being changed
    By faith and grace.

    My God is dealing with me.

    AND LET HIM HAVE HIS WAY!

    It is wise to know, that we all need a secret quiet holy place to go. And as you introspectively listen to him, find your place again, know that he is a friend who dwells always within. And when we
    pray. Listen to what he has to say........AND LET HIM HAVE HIS WAY! "The Lord is thy keeper: the lord is thy shade upon thy right hand." Psalm 121:5 PEACE AND PROSPERITY AND BLESSINGS ON YOUR HOUSE!
