Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living


 Life Treasure

To discover the purpose
Unique to me
Is to discover treasure
I did not see

This purpose was here
Before my birth
God foreknew it
Before creating earth

Humbling that we
Carry a purpose each
Some to build
And some to teach

Others do write
And some do sing
Value to God’s Kingdom
We are meant to bring

When asking my Lord
What it is I should do
He said, “Use your talents
Building my Kingdom True”

Melt away at once
The distractions did
And I saw that calling
Which in my heart He hid

The how and the where
I need not know
Take a step forward
The next step He will show

Call unto the Lord
And discover purpose deep
Therein are energized days
And sweet restful sleep

Seek first His Kingdom
All your needs He provides
He comforts, He inspires
He instructs, He guides

So content I feel now
So joyful, so free
Striving to be all
God created me to be
