Blooming Faith

Here I stand, in this pot,
Dirt pressed around my feet—
Wondering how this dream
Will come to be complete.

I'll bask in the sunshine,
And drink in God's rain.
I can't grow by trying,
It doesn't help to strain.

In time the bloom will come
I know God will come through—
A miracle, you know,
He's done, a time or two.

I stand here believing,
It is all I can do.
I'll see my faith blossom
Into blooms—quite a few.
