Words to a Man Who Does His Daily Work

By: Simon J. Daniel

Words To A Man Who Does His Daily Work -

As Much As Words Can Say

A man who seeks God's blessings

Before he starts his daily work

He shall be blessed.

He who starts early in the morning

Puts his trust

In the One who gives him breath

Will receive His love, power and wisdom

To go on and on --

Like the engine of a TGV or a jet plane.

Only some by-standers may feel

Like confused bogies of a steam-powered goods train

But the man of God powered by the Holy Spirit will endure

And success and peace shall be his

In the next world and in this.

There will always be a few small men who squat by the sides

Jeering from the pavement

Raising a din - they are those

Who cannot control their own lives.

It takes faith to start with God

And to abide in Him.

It takes determination to do His Will.

The man who has his faith in God and -- works

For faith without works is -- dead

His is the living faith.

He stands by God

And God stays with him.

- Simon J. Daniel. Jozabad: YHWH has bestowed
