Maybe, Probably, Certainly

  Is it “Yes,” or is it “No”?
Is it “Later,” or is it “Now”?
Finding the right answers,
the LORD will show you how.

Challenges will come every day!
Do not complain and do not shirk;
You’re growing older and wiser,
Good decisions help do the work.

Lots of things allow a little time
to think, and plan and do —
achieve success, find happiness. 
Other things say, “Hurry!” to you. 

Start first thing in the morning
to anticipate your day;
Read the Bible, make your lists,
and, of course, you’ll want to pray.

Yes, you’ll learn lessons from mistakes —
it’s the sensible thing to do;
But, what a relief in the evening
to know that God has blessed you.
