Trees By a Stream

The road is hard and pain is oh so great.
I work and work and never get ahead.
I need a break or just a little gift.
What must I do to get a little more?
Yet God is quiet. I know He must be mad.

I stop and sit and quietly meditate.
If I don’t know the laws or grace of God,
how can I know that He is mad at all?
How can I know what He does give to me?
How can I know if He’s has offered help?

Please gaze at all my wants and heartfelt wishes too.
Look down deep and see the things I crave.
If I don’t know the laws or grace of God,
the works my hands complete will drip with toil.
What can I do to find that I am brave?

I read His word and here is what it said.
When I obey God’s law I’ll bear His fruits
just like a tree that’s planted by a stream.
I’ll bear the fruits just when the time is right.
And everything thing I do will be well done.

I have a choice I must always make
gnashing teeth or sitting by a stream.
