Great Expectations

Great expectations delight our Most High God,

Mysterious, unexpected are His ways.

Though our cherished plans go awry, 

His good purposes will prevail.

Joshua declared — sun stood still. 

March, shout — walls fell flat.

What visions, what dreams throb within?

Jesus said ask — mountains will move.

Great Expectations 

Soar on wings of faith and obedience;

Take the leap, reach for the ring, persevere.

Our God majors in Impossible.
