Rising Out Of Obscurity

Although you may think you are in obscurity
And you are unable to see any light in the near future
You are down and out and presently living in the ashes
Be patient
The eyes of the unseen One sees all
He is waiting to lift you and I beyond our wildest imaginations
The things we have perfected in our private moments
He will reveal to the universe
Don't worry about those who blow their own trumpets
Singing their own praises and touting their achievements
Shouting from house tops to be seen or heard
Neither envy the proud and the boastful
They too have their own private hell
Unfortunately for them they live in the same world as you
A world where Problems, sickness and death has no friend
Like you and I they are mortal men
Quietly persue the road you must tread and your calling
In due time your light will shine
Remember it is the Eternal One that weigh hearts and motives
Therefore be ready for destiny's call
It is a sure thing she will come calling
Don't ask her for time to prepare when she calls
Render assistance to every man that ask for it
You never can tell if this is not just a test of kindness and character
And always have open hands
Only then will you be able to give and to receive
Ask yourself is it better to be at the foot of a ladder or the top?
Be where you best serve your fellowman
Make sure you treat those at the foot nicely if you are at the top
You and I are tomorrows heroes
Today we are creating that legacy
Let us ensure we do not short change our posterity
Always remember that it is the Eternal One that hand out rewards
It is good to look toward the day when you shall hear "well done'
Remember no one make or passes any law
That make it illegal or unlawful to reach for the stars
