Autumn Interlude

The window over my desk.
The blue afternoon sky.
The trees shedding their colorful garments at will.
Through the empty limbs, a crescent moon plays peek-a-boo with me.
Autumn interlude...

So much to be busy with,
so much going on.
I must do all that I can do
before the time is gone!
Already is it afternoon
and hurried be my gait,
when God my Father interrupts
and says to me "Just wait!"
I know that when He says this I have

too much happening.
He does this so that common sense
may find an opening.
Reminding me that all that must
be done will find a way,
and if I but completely trust,
victory will stay!

Too busy with what must be done
and, once more, I am caught.
If I do not make time for Jesus
all will be for naught!
Back to noticing the limbs,
the branches and the moon--
these precious blessings from His hand
will all be gone too soon.

They will all be gone too soon, and that which is pressing will still be available for you when you finish that special moment with God.  Watch for those moments.  They are more common than you think, as HE knows what is best for us.
