Boldly Step Ahead

In reading and studying Genesis 32 along my spiritual journey, I noted that Jacob took the initiative towards working things out with his brother Esau. He selected a significant number of cattle, sheep, goats, rams, camels, and donkeys as gifts for him.

As we boldly step ahead on our journey through life, let us take in this lesson of working our differences out. Instead, let us do God’s work together and eventually a flower will blossom for the world to see. This poem inspires us in that direction.

Step Ahead

Angels will help
Boldly step ahead.
On this spiritual journey
Being daily fed.

Learning new things
About God and self.
Refusing mediocrity;
Into the Word we delve.

Getting ready for the challenge
Of each and every day
By going to the ONE
Who created the Way!

Stirring each other up
To boldly step ahead.
Initiating spiritual growth
Being Bible Study led.

Reflecting on experiences
Along the journey of living.
God’s words like seeds
Take root in our giving.

Refuse to give up or stop,
Do God’s great endeavor,
And will blossom a flower
For the world to see forever.
