Productively::Glorifying

I must say, that I enjoy working, I enjoy doing, 

I find JOY in serving . . .

  
I must say, that I find a bit of my worth in being useful, that in the doing there is substance, I see movement,

I find PURPOSE . . .

  
I must say, that I can get caught up in my self, that I say “well done, good chap”, I am – it,

I become ENTANGLED . . .

  
I must say, that then the Joy is lost, that the purpose is hollow, I am lost,

I have saught SELF . . .

  
Yet, God does not forsake me, nor does He waste the work, nay,

He calls me to be Still . . .

For, He does have a purpose for me, He wants me to have Joy, to be,

At His feet LISTENING . . .

  
There, there will be Joy, there I will find my work, Kingdom work,

I will have given up “I” for The I AM . . .

He is Joy, and in Him, I find my greatest Joy, serving Him,

Life given for LIFE . . .

  
So then, my Joy is in the Lord, my work a blessing, peace in the knowing,

Now, to work on having LESS of self, and more of HIM

In ALL I do . . .
