Treasures In The Garden
Worth watching out for….
Did you ever pray for a miracle?
Do you hope for a sign on high?
Is there anyone listening up there at all,
or are there only just clouds in the sky?
There’s no pillar of fire to follow;
no walking on water to see.
So if God really looks down from heaven
what signs do you think there should be?
God is that smile from a stranger.
when things are desperately bad.
Or the friend who just happened to be there
when you found yourself feeling sad.
God’s that phone call from someone
who you thought had forgotten your name;
the hope that you find when it’s hopeless,
and you thought you were out of the game.
Then again God might be the wind,
that snatches off somebody’s hat.
Hand it back, next thing you’re talking,
and married in ten minutes flat.
God’s the hand of your Mother
when you nearly got hit by a car.
Or the words of advice from your Dad
that can help you to go all thet far.
God is that teasing kid in class,
that made you who you are today.
Or the smile of you favourite teacher,
that put you well on life’s way.
God’s the job you took out of boredom,
that turned out to be perfectly right;
and the police person who pulled you over,
when you might have been dead that night.
No, God doesn’t do sea partings.
and you won’t find God raising the dead.
But…. look close enough and you’ll see that God’s power
comes in small miracles instead.
