Cares and a Crown

The very hairs of your head are numbered–
God shares that thought so you won’t be encumbered
With worries and cares that should be laid at His feet,
Since He knows the best way to make all lives complete.
He satisfies the desire of all living things
By opening His hand, and with it He brings
Bountiful blessings beyond what’s desired,
For He loves to give even more than the required.
To avoid any pitfalls, you need to become sharpened
By going to God’s Word daily, therein to hearken.
And don’t think, in any instance, His direction will cease–
Just go by what lines up with His Word and gives peace.
For Jesus is the Good Shepherd; He won’t let you down.
He has much for you here and then, one day, a crown.

P. A. Oltrogge
