A Poem of Thought-What's Next?

What's Next?

In life I sometimes live perplexed
Not knowing to what is coming
That's when I inquire to the Lord, what's next?

I ask please show me what my life reflects
With this, He showed me what's forth coming
As in life I sometimes live perplexed

He said, your life need not be complex
It's about what you are becoming
As I inquire to the lord, what's next?

A faithful servant is all I ask
In doing so, I'm getting you ready
Making sure your up for My task

He said, with Me you know My love is steady
No matter how much yours does waver
So stop your wonder to what's next, already

I said, You certainly have showed me favor
When in life I sometimes live perplexed
It's clear to me, You are my Savior
When I inquired to You Lord, what's next?

Thoughts: Sometimes we can get perplexed in life; especially, when things don't go as expected. But, have learned that's a part of life. The only true expectations, I've learned, that does not allow room for perplexity, is in knowing that Jesus Christ is my savior and that He died on the cross so I may live eternally in heaven with Him. "I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know." (John 14:2-4. NKJV). In asking, What's Next?, I know what's coming. That's the return of Jesus, to take all that believed and are baptized in this belief, home. Mean time, in my question, I live the best I can for Him and trust in the Holy Spirit's guidance, in times of uncertainty, along my way into What's next? 

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ." (Philippians 4: 6-7. NKJV).
