Devotional Poem: Grasshopper Vision
They felt like mere grasshoppers, in their sight.
And hadn’t faith enough to go and fight.
They chose, instead, to go the safest way;
And that was to turn back, and run away.
That’s not the way that God wants us to be -
Afraid to follow Him to victory.
How very sad, for those who choose to doubt;
And from God’s blessing, find they’ve been left out.
