A Boy and His Mom’s Wisdom

A boy and his mom.
A king and a queen.
Words of wisdom.
And I get to glean.
Teaching and leading.
A mom loves her son.
Recalling prophecy.
He remembers what’s to be done.
Judgment, discernment,
Needed strength to rule.
Consider the poor and needy.
No need to be cruel.
Righteous and sober.
A testimony to protect.
No time to get drunk.
No time to neglect.
Virtuous and diligent.
A woman of God.
She’s to be praised
And given the gentleman’s nod.
Favor, beauty.
Beware of passing deceit.
Fear of the Lord
Makes a woman complete.

Trust Him With Everything

If you’re gonna trust in the Lord, go all the way…
Trust Him with everything.
If you say you trust Him to look after you,
But keep doubting things you hope for,
Or things you know He expects of you and for you,
How can you say you trust Him?
That would really be more like saying,
“I trust You, Lord, but I’ll take care of the most important things.”
If you do not completely surrender your trust to Him,
Maybe you’re not trusting Him at all.
If you trust God to hear your prayers,
Meet your needs, and fulfill your life,
Then trust Him with what it takes to get it all done.
Give Him your soul, heart, mind, and body.
Give Him everything He has loaned to you.
If you know He’s all knowing and wise to protect,
Why would you doubt Him?
I know fear and uncertainty can be a problem,
But you know for certain that the fear of the Lord
Is the beginning of knowledge.
So if you’re gonna trust in the Lord, go all the way…
Trust Him with everything.
