Godly Dreams

Godly Dreams 🎲

Let’s just go for our godly dreams.
Closed doors are not what they seem.
Little Master Branson dreamed of going to space.
Took him a lifetime of try to finish that race.
Mary of old sat at Jesus feet;
Dreamed of hearing the Rabbi speak.
Women in the kitchen for thousands of years, never hearing the Word of God dear.
Jesus elevated womanhood that day
In a daring flamboyant patience display.
With God time is not of the essence
As He targets down His manifold blessings.
God’s child has worked hard to settle for just one square
When four squares are available for those who accept failure’s incomparable dare.
