Failure or Success?

I prepare the feast

With heavy heart.

Faults bog me down

Fear sets me apart.

 

I stir the foods, but

Something’s not right.

My hands shake

As I take a bite.

 

I taste bitterness for sure.

What’s that ingredient?

Submission to God makes

Repentence expedient.

 

I bow before the heavenly throne

Knowing I’m unworthy.

On my own, I fall short

Cling to food that’s earthly.

 

I’ve worked for You,

I plead with God.

Did I misread your command

Wanting Your applause?



No, my child He explains.

You don’t know my thoughts

They’re higher than yours

So don’t be distraught.

 

Dessert will come later.

I view the whole meal.

Stay in the kitchen

Pray for the yield.

 

How say you, you’ve failed

When the dinner’s not ready.

The yeast is still rising

Now hold fast and steady.

 

At banquet time

I’ll sound the alert.

We’ll gather round the table

In me, you’ll have worth.

This is God's view.

How do you measure failure or success?
