It's time for wearin' of the green
'cause it's St. Patrick's Day;
But when folks speak of Irish Luck,
here's what I'd like to say...
It wasn't luck that you were born,
or chance that brought you here;
For you are God's own masterpiece,
and in Him there's no fear.
So you don't need a rabbit's foot
if to God's hand you cling;
For He's the master of your fate,
He's Lord of everything!
No four-leaf clover can replace
the wonder of His care;
For He is all the "luck" you need,
and He is everywhere!
No need to cross your fingers
when on His name you call;
He'll give you everything you need,
and lift you when you fall.
In Him we move and have our being,
by His hand we're led;
So don't you wish for Irish Luck,
just trust in God instead!
--Connie McHinnen O'Cook ;)
"In everything you do,
put God first,
and He will direct you
and crown your efforts
(Proverbs 3:6 LB)
