The prophet Samuel went to Jesse's house to find a king;
This very serious occurrence had everyone in their boots shaking.
Back then, whatever the prophet said was the way it was to be;
The prophet told Jesse he wanted his sons to see.
Proudly, the eldest, Eliab, was brought forth without jesting,
But no, the new crown would be on another brother resting.
One by one, the brothers came before Samuel with reverence deep,
Till it became clear the new king was the youngest out tending sheep.
No one questioned the prophet--none of the brothers threw a jealous fit.
Samuel seriously intoned, "Till he gets here, no one will sit".
Have you ever stood a long time wondering why?
In rare situations like this, time doesn't exactly fly.
What you think will happen might leave you staggering.
God's plan will happen even if you think it's red-flaggering.
Several times in my life the final decision, I thought stunk.
How things, big things, actually turned out--who would have thunk?
God has a plan-He is eternal and He's not hand-wringing.
A long time to you is shortened when angels to you are winging.
Saul was still King and troubled when David was selected, his harp to soothe;
A few years later, David became King when Saul fell on his sword smooth.
Dave likes to put together words to make poems. Sometimes the rhythms are great and sometimes they are a stretch. Either way they will make you think, make you laugh, make you wonder what's going on with Dave. :)
