Those Little Gold Nuggets...
Every path I’ve taken for the Lord in my entire life’s history,
I've found gold nuggets on the path, placed
there just for me.
It took me a while to notice them. At first I didn’t see them there.
But then I began to realize they’d been
placed with great care.
I found them where I least expected and when they were needed most.
It wasn’t long when I realized they’d been
placed by a Heavenly Host.
Too, it became obvious that the Host knew I would come this way
and that it was Him that had placed these
nuggets in my pathway.
I soon learned the nuggets weren’t there to help the work grow,
that each had been placed there simply to
make my heart glow.
For each gold nugget turned out to be a special gift in my life;
a great blessing, a miracle for either me,
my family or my wife.
And so it will be with every calling He will ask you to do.
He will line the pathway with little gold
nuggets just for you.
If you will accept your callings, if you will give them your best,
I promise you in the name of the Lord, He
will bless your little nest.
He will bless them temporally and eternally with blessings that will
Your testimony, your faith in
Him will become immovable and steadfast.
"And all these blessings shall come on
thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto
the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city,
blessed shalt thou be in the field.
Blessed shalt be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy
ground...Blessed shall be thy basket
and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and
blessed shalt thou be when
thou goest out. The Lord shall command the blessings upon thee in
and in all that thou settest thine hand unto..." Deuteronomy 28:2-8
