WISDOM FOR LIFE’S JOURNEY (POEM)
It is with excitement that I celebrate my niece on her birthday today as is my custom. I can hardly believe how big she has grown. It is the Lord’s doing and it’s marvellous in my eyes. But most importantly, the Lord’s hand is upon her life and she has been a great source of joy to my family since she was born.
Do read and wish her a happy birthday. You are awesomely blessed in Jesus’ name.
Wisdom for Life’s Journey
How does a child’s body grow?
How do its cells replicate?
What makes its curious eyes glow
And with acts of love resonate?
How does its mind absorb knowledge
While its tissues imbibe nutrients?
How does it ultimately age
With body and soul like the ancients?
The journey of life is a mystery
That the Creator plans and unravels
But since you’ve given Christ the mastery
You’re certain to experience His marvels
As life’s journey confronts you with posers
You’ll have wisdom and depth of insight
And discern the LORD’s own answers
To triumph as you walk in His light
A very happy birthday to you, my darling! ?
