Poet Edgar A Guest
I did not argue with the man,
It seemed a waste of words.
He gave to chance the wondrous plan
That gave sweet song to birds.
He gave to force the wisdom wise
That shaped the honeybee,
And made the useful butterflies
So beautiful to see.
And as we walked 'neath splendid trees
Which cast a friendly shade,
He said: "Such miracles as these
By accident were made."
Too well I know what accident
And chance and force disclose
To think blind fury could invent
The beauty of a rose.
I let him talk and answered not.
I merely thought it odd
That he could view a garden plot
And not believe in God.
God goes into the midst of it all, chooses one person to be his instrument, and does his miracle there, where one least expects it.
I pray that we as Christians never lose our conviction that God does change lives!
Trying to be happy without a sense of God's presence is like trying to have a bright day without the sun.
A relationship with God will never be a failure.
The durable riches are only found in God.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:6 ESV
