About The Father’s Business


You have separated

darkness from the light,

Called one day

And the other night.


You placed the waters

Oceans deep,

Setting the shores

Boundaries you keep.


You spoke forth life,

In seas and on land,

Some would swim

Others to stand.


You set barriers

Marking and making,

establishing boundaries,

Each one breathtaking.


Oh why do we push?

Why do we shove?

Attempting to change

What is fashioned with love?


If we could grasp

Seek to understand,

Each one was fashioned

Made by Your right hand.


Boundaries for protection

Barriers secure,

Working within,

would be mature.


You set the seasons.

And set into orbit,

Sun moon and stars,

painting the portrait.


You said count,

See If you can?

Stars which were tossed

out of My hand.


Foolish man

Why disobey?

Haven’t I said,

I Am The Way?


Stop all this nonsense

Stand still and see,

The salvation of The Lord

Only offered by Me.


White unto harvest

The fields do gleam,

We have work to do

I need a strong team!


With head bowed down

Repent, ask for My forgiveness,

Don’t you know it is time to be

about The Father’s business?

Psalm 33:6-9 AMPC


“By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all their host by the breath of His mouth. [Heb. 11:3; II Pet. 3:5.] He gathers the waters of the sea as in a bottle; He puts the deeps in storage places. Let all the earth fear the Lord [revere and worship Him]; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.”


Luke 10:2 KJV

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.
