Close your eyes & open your hands

Milestone events happen automatically sometimes.

How, what, when, why- you probably never planned;

Yet the biggest and the best falls straight into your lap.

Of course, you've always wished for abundant goodness,

"But, this? Really?"

Have you ever caught yourself wondering?

It might be a different direction, but it'll lead you right;

This is His masterstroke, though the path is out of sight.

He hears your questions, as He works to ease the haze;

Shh! Quieten your thoughts- abide throughout the maze.

You'll be okay! So, quit worrying- it is a nasty habit!

Where are the days when you believed without limit?

It's perfectly safe to accept, trust and aim to achieve;

Happiness multiplies when you allow yourself to receive.

Clean the broken records from long ago- it is a new era;

Grab this opportunity- grow, excel, brighten your aura.

This was in the package deal of friendship and His lifts;

God wants you to have faith, to enjoy His surprise gifts.

He needs you to trust more than you can often muster;

Yet, leaves you indebted, as His love turns to shelter.

Your prayer is your direct connection that works,

Though He reads your mind, around you as He lurks;

Don't be stingy with praise! Be gracious, thank Him.

In undoing a curse, He has freed you from a life so grim.

Bob along the gentle stream, taking in sights of glory!

Dip your hands in the water, write with Him your story;

Play, sing, hope, dream, wish in merriment- rejoice!

Feel calmness, wave to stillness- make an active choice.

He heard you when you prayed in your darkest hour,

You won't have to struggle to gain or ever be sour;

Life will carry you upon His able shoulders, you'll see,

For now though- patience is a virtue, so learn to just be!

Hold on a bit longer, the prize is headed your way,

Watch out for the opening that'll lead you into the bay.
