It's Time to Grow

What time is it?
Do you have an idea, do you know?
Do you feel some inner stirrings?
It is time to grow.

Pay attention to possibilities,
Shrug off the status quo;
Let discernment develop
As down life’s path you go.

Your choices of yesterday
May not be the best now, so
Reevaluate the situation;
Find the inner strength to grow.

Meditate upon God’s Word,
Welcome new expectations;
Greet accumulations of joy,
Improve communications.

Life is not just happenstance,
Call out to God in prayer;
Welcome Him, He loves you,
Then His love you’ll share.

Declare an end to winter,
Open your heart to spring;
No matter the outdoor’s season
Grow and bloom and sing!
