WHY II

There is purpose in your problems,

I call it Divine Design!

First off have you not considered

He is calling you all the time!

.

.

Yes, calling!  You have felt the impulse

Projected until you obey!

Keeps after you gently, softly!

Until you hear what He has to say!

.

.

“Read My Word!  Meet Me this morning.”

Gently, “Now it is time to pray!”

How can we call ourselves Christian

If we do not start our day this way?

.

.

But back to His purpose in problems,

Obstacles, can you accept?

Fact that Hell lay them before you

Or is this a new concept?

.

.

Attention getter, I call it.

Within the Divine Design.

If you get your hackles in an uproar

It is the devils time to shine!

.

.

Just do it say, “Speak Lord, I am listening,”

Then listen, His impulse is clear!

I am not here to do a replay

Sufficient to know that He is near!

.

.

How can I know what He tells me?

Communication!  Would you agree?

Brings up the matter of caring

You mean He really cares for me?

.

.

He built you!  Or do not you remember,

His process through mother’s birth?

All organs, utensils are present!

Just nothing like it on earth!

.

.

Of course, I know you know better

It happens all the time!

Evidence of God’s designing

Just a wee part of Divine Design!

.

.

Maybe that is why we are so dense now,

It happens all the time!

Just once and we would remember

But then there is no one but, I am!

.

.

Just why should our matchless Creator,

Why should He care about me?

So why should he die as my Savior?

And suffer on Calvary?

.

DIVINE DESIGN

Walking in the footsteps of the Savior, The Divine,

Disciples goal, Our Father’s supreme design!

To make our fellowship with Him our prime time!

THE Divine Design!

.

.

Do we see a promise of perfection in His claim?

Anticipating wealth, intelligence, or fame?

Importance?  Irreverent!  We cannot lay claim

To God’s Divine Design!

.

.

Contributing to His design can we see any good?

Of course!  Cannot be otherwise!  It is as it should!

Follow His perspective or in that neighborhood!

Of God’s perfect Design!

.

.

No, not so goody good as in Pharisaical!

Good without God’s goodness is hypocritical!

These good present themselves and of themselves as full!

Not God’s perfect Design!

.

.

The perfect ONE is Jesus.  He alone and in every way!

Can teach perfection as we follow abiding each day!

Can lead us when we ask Him, “Please teach us to pray!”

In YOUR Divine Design!

.

.

The future with its promises forever in His care!

Forever in His presence, this one path I would share!

With those who ask reason; His love beyond compare,

Myself in God’s Design!

.

.

Perfection does not make a Christian, just forgiveness does!

That is what happened on the cross when Christ died for us!

By his death we are forgiven, with His stripes healed us!

Continuing His Design!

.

.

Perfection we may strive for with our eyes on the goal!

Not attained completely until in His control,

Depending on forgiveness while the ages roll.

That is God’s DIVINE DESIGN!
