The topic is green, and I haven’t a clue.
With pleas for His mercy, and a heart full of hope,
I sit at the keyboard, and look like a dope.
I won’t write without You! My hopes can all fall,
I won’t write without You! I’ll write nothing at all.
I won’t write without You! The deadline draws neigh,
Would it impress You my Father if I started to cry?
He gave me no answer. No answer at all,
But I sensed He was smiling,
Which made me feel small.
I thought I should ask Him; I thought I should pray,
I thought I should ask Him; and here’s what I’d say.
Should I write about frogs? Or crickets that sing?
Or moss covered logs or the jealousy thing?
Or green leaves and blind men receiving their sight?
O Lord I am straining; I’m trying to fight
The loss of Your input—my heartfelt delight.
I closed the computer and said with deep sigh,
The Lord is my Sovereign, I gave it a try.
But laughter came quickly from somewhere unseen,
He thought I was funny; He’d help me with green.
But loosen and lighten and laugh at yourself,
I AM your Sovereign,
You need nothing else.
