Remember when I started to tell you the poem "Don't Worry Robin!" Well, here is the rest of it.
I hope you enjoy it!
Don't Worry Robin!
So she laid her head upon her wing
And then began to cry
For she could not bear the burden
Which upon her now did lie.
Convinced that God must be unfair,
The little robin asked,
"Lord, why give a little robin
Such a monumental task?"
"A task too great?" the Lord inquired,
"Why all you have to do
Is get the worms your brood needs now
And that is just a few.
I did not say to do the work
Of all the year ahead
Your job is just to do today
What I, the Lord, have said."
The robin paused and pondered,
And then she did recall
That the Father said he feeds the birds
Although they may be small.
So no matter how she fretted
All her worry was in vain,
For He promised that He'd feed them,
And His promise there is plain.
Herself she reprimanded,
What wasted tears were mine,
While I struggled to supply myself
What was promised all the time!
Why fret and fume and fluster
Over every daily need?
For God told us just to seek Him first,
And the robins He would feed."
"I can't bear the future's burdens
And its tasks I cannot face,
For tomorrow is too great a strain
On today's sufficient grace.
But when tomorrow becomes Today
And the future becomes the present,
I'll find His grace is again enough
To make my task seem pleasant."
"Today is all I need to see
I won't worry for Tomorrows
Today has enough of heartaches
Without borrowing future sorrows."
Then the robin sighed in great relief
And found that she could rest
While leaving tomorrow in God's hand
And just doing today her best.
So then finally she rested
After worrying so long,
And as her peace returned
She found her long-forgotten song.
She again could sing
And bring to hearts a note of cheer
When she let her Father handle
The rest of all the year.
