I planned and was purposeful,
My attempts to create
Opportunities and options
Joys I could equate
I rushed here, I rushed there
Dotted “t’s” and crossed “i’s”
Proposals and queries
But disappointments did arise
No offers. No interest.
And what came I turned down
Convinced it would not fit
As my busyness abounds
I’d given up, was losing hope
I was tired of trying
I felt like my dream was slipping away
And inside, I was dying
So I surrendered. It’s all I could do
I said God, You have to show me how
You created me to want this
The problem is, I want it now.
This is my energy, my passion
But I can’t make it work
My heart, my desire
Now a burden, in my heart lurks
When I gave up, then the phone rang
Opportunity knocked – and so loud
Interest .. incredible interest
Of my work, I felt so proud
It’s a life lesson I keep learning
Why can’t I remember it so easily?
When I say Your Will, Lord, not mine
That’s when You’ve always blessed me.
Moving forward … onward and upward
