    Before the ascension
    In the whirlwind,
    Of his spirit, Eli-SHA asked Eli-JAH
    For a "DOUBLE portion"
    And so, to belie any inherited, mirrored distortion
    I have often, inwardly, wished for just HALF
    Of my mother's "Blessed Assurance"
    But, I must run my own race, this test of MY endurance
    I must put such thoughts up high on an out-of-reach shelf
    Yes, I must walk my own path and know Him.....for myself

    So, I must gather and plant my own "mustard seeds"
    And then just watch them grow, letting HIM... tend to the weeds
    No, of my sorrows, I won't even SPEAK into existence
    I'll just let my Protector handle any opposing resistance
    Yes, I'll just count my blessings as I "Hold Out Until My Change Is Come"
    Because that ole Devil
    Won't know what I'm saying when I just moan it out and....HUM

    For, truly, I have so many examples
    That "Jesus Will Work It Out, If You Let Him"
    Like when Elijah showed just how GREAT God is
    He poured WATER all over an altar as well as in a trench dug around
    But his unwavering, steadfast faith remained unmoveable and profound
    For even with such a fully doused PYRE
    He KNEW that God could still make a mighty FIRE!
    Also....there's the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
    Thrown into a fiery furnace
    But when King Nebuchadnezzar looked through that barred, burning-hot door
    He asked if only those THREE were thrown in?....because he saw FOUR!

    Yes, He said if that I'd just obey and follow the rules
    "Victory Is Mine." Because He'll make my enemies..my "FOOTSTOOLS!"
    Yes, according to MY faith, if I ASK Him
    He'll MOVE the mountain, lead me AROUND it
    Or even REDUCE it to an easily conquered hill
    All because I, unequivocably, KNOW that "Yes, God Is Real!"

    such true words...

    you've written here. "if you believe in your heart..." all things are possible...BECAUSE HE SAID SO. and, knowing HIM, we know there is nothing HE cannot do...if we believe. FAITH IN THE THINGS UNSEEN. when we hear that whisper in our ear, telling us something RIGHT we need to do, we need to listen...to believe that HE is leading us to where we need to be.

    continue your path. your ministry is alive.
