Will you be submissive to God’s leading in your life?
Will you accept His very best when searching for a wife?
Will you search for wisdom, as others search for gold?
Will you give Jesus your whole heart, and not a part withhold?
Will you always stand for truth, and defend against the lies?
Will you live a life of righteousness, and not of compromise?
Will you abide daily in God’s counsel, and take heed unto His Word?
Will you strive to be more Christlike, more like our precious Lord?

(Dedicated to my nephew, Andrew, who is searching for God’s will in his life.
I found this old poem in a box in 2023, written literally two weeks before he was born.)
Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
