Helen Steiner Rice – A Collection of Encouragement
God gives us a power we so seldom employ,
For we’re so unaware it is filled with such joy.
The gift that God gives us is anticipation,
Which we can fulfill with sincere expectation,
For there’s power in belief when we think we will find
Joy for the heart and peace for the mind,
And believing the day will bring a surprise
Is not only pleasant but surprisingly wise.
For we open the door to let joy walk through
And believing we’ll find a happy surprise
Makes reality out of a fancied surmise.
