What's Next?

Some days seem so chaotic and some just seem so normal
and sometimes we go casual and other days we're formal.
But being able to adjust with all the changes of each day
is only possible by asking Jesus to closely stay.

We hope and dream of things that we would like to happen and then
some major catastrophe occurs and things change just like the wind.
We look up and say, "What's next?' just letting out our doubts and fears
to The One we know can help us, to The One who always hears.

He hears us even when we verbally say nothing at all
because He knows our hearts and He answers every call.
Prayers are a powerful weapon for us to us all through the day
so never forget that no matter what's next, always take time to pray.

"Tomorrow is another day," we've heard Miss Scarlett say
and we should all remember that when change gets in our way.
Change can rock our core and upset more than the apple cart
but knowing God will help see us through when we keep Him in our heart.

poem by: Norma Spiller

Scripture Isaiah 28:16
So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.

Isaiah 33: 6
He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.
