When I think I know
where something’s headed
and none of it
looks good to me

I remember God’s will
to rejoice and give thanks
to trust Him more
and pray constantly.

God bless you as you are found ready to do His will!

called out
to a work we
have not known

separated
unto Him
covered, kept
and grown.

God bless you as you are separated unto Him today.
