BEHIND

Statue of a man looking behind

Behind again

Even though I

Had said

I wouldn’t let it happen

Nonetheless it

Did!

Ah, well the best laid plan of mice and. men also applies to ladies 😊

Of Plans and Paths

Path

An unexpected crack in my plans

Puts me on a path of imperfection

I must keep myself from slipping

And with new eyes, begin again

I can’t let my plans slip away

I must now patch the imperfection

That arose and caused me to have

An unexpected crack in my plans

With new eyes I search for an answer

That will help me smooth out my plans

To keep me from a happening that

Puts me on a path of imperfection

As I avidly search to find the answer

I come upon one who offers help

He extends His strong hand, I grasp it

I must keep myself from slipping

My kind strong Helper leads me to new places

Places where I can find perfect plans

Good sound plans created just for me

And with new eyes begin again

MONEY

Dollar Sign

Must have this.

One thing that is

Necessary for

Everything on earth

You plan to do.

Acrostic

As I was talking with a couple of my grandkids today, and listening to each of them tell me about their future hopes and dreams, this came to mind—MONEY.

Each plan, each action, each dream, they had depended on money. Money to finance a patent on an idea. Money to pay for a trademark, business promotion, etc, etc.

It is sad but true. So much of our future life depends on money, yet with God all things are possible, for He does not depend on money.

So I tell them if their plans, hopes and dreams are in line with what God has purposed for them, then He will make a way for it all to happen.

And with that knowledge and belief, they and any believer, can trust and expect that their future will be a good one that honors God and fulfills their dreams as well.

…The generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches will be in his house,… Psalm 112:2-3

“…with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:26

Where Are You?

Field, clouds, sky

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Or are you in your comfort zone?

Are you settled or wanting to be free?

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Seeking a dream or a vision you see?

Need help or like being alone?

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Or are you in your comfort zone?

Realistic Dreaming

Dreaming, girl on the moon, hot air balloons, sky

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got

Before you leave the pond and swim upstream

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its not just an empty scheme

Promising you somethings that are not

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got

A Future and A Hope

Jeremiah 29:11
@SGLYMinistry 2017 http://www.smilegodlovesyou.org/sglystore.html

A spirit of hope,

Leads to a door of the future.

Prosperity waits,

In accordance with Him,

And His plans for me.

His word declares it so.

I sall not be harmed,

For His plans are for good,

For me forever and ever.

Choka

Based on Jeremiah 29:11

Not a Back Up Plan

Sad face
Old Mr. Wunder

Really made a blunder

Made a bad day worse

When he threw his car in reverse

And knocked my plans asunder 

Limerick

As I was waiting to leave a restaurant parking lot today another elderly customer was backing out from his parking spot and apparently didn’t see my bright red car right in front of him. He backed into the right rear side of my car and thankfully only caused minor damage to it, and no injuries to anyone except my car, however, the whole incident caused about an hour’s loss of time. At least he had insurance. Such is life sometimes…

Pondering Paths

I was going,
But now, I’m not.
Plans change so quickly.

Another day passes,
As I do mundane tasks.
Time passes slowly.

Days become filled
With work and school.
Minutes fly by.

Sunrises in the East.
Sunsets in the West.
Moments in between are a blur.

Life–a daily gift.
Have I used it well?
Have I shared it with others?

The Lord of days
Watches it all
And ponders…

For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths. Proverbs 5:21
