Statement of Faith

Like a child given a choice
Between a penny and a dime,
I clutched my penny tightly
In this childish hand of mine.  

I was fooled by the penny's size,
And held it firmly in my grasp;
I was content with what I held,
For what more could I ask?  

I thought that little penny
Was the better of the two;
But God, in His great wisdom,
Knew that wasn't true.  

From my tightly clasped hand
He pried what I thought best,
To replace it with something better
And now I'm much more blessed.  

Are you grasping in your hand today
A meager little penny?
If you'll open up your hand to Him,
He'll replace your little with plenty!

2002 JM McIntosh

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, 
no mind has conceived what God has 
prepared for those who love Him.
(I Corinthians 2:9)
