Being Ready

Should God present the "perfect occasion"
To make change and prosper or fulfill a dream,
Would you be ready to "pick up and go"...
To be called into opportunity's stream?

Often we ponder and yearn to be used
But are not attuned as to how to prepare.
God may be trying to bring about change,
But then we are busy and less than aware.

Whatever His leading, we need to respond,
Though sometimes His leading may not make much sense.
He will prepare us in His perfect timing
And help us be ready new work to commence.

We need not fear that we won't be ready.
By Him we're seasoned and fit and equipped.
We then can move in His perfect timing.
He is our Guide, His Word is our script.

"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1:6 KJV
