~What I Was Sent to Do~

Updated on March 5, 2014

Sometimes, I know if I could choose, I’d simply turn away

Sometimes, if it were up to me, I’d have too much to say.

Sometimes I think “life’s journey” has taken way too long

Sometimes I’m sure what’s right will never quite outweigh what’s wrong.

It is then God sends a rainbow or a tiny bird to sing

And reminds me I already have the best of everything.

I have the eyes to see my world, and ears to hear it’s voice.

If I just slow down long enough…and that? Well, that’s my choice.

The trials aren’t to hurt me, they’re for others who don’t know.

And so God made me a vessel – so they can see how things should go.

He set me deep in mighty waters, and told me “forge straight through”

And I know somebody’s watching to see just how I do.

He isn’t going to fail them…so I know I’ll be okay

Though He’ll let me get discouraged at the end of a long day.

I may not perform with grace

Or know “success”, but when I’m through

I will know I have accomplished

What I was sent to do.
