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.
