Spiritual Faith -- Joseph

Joseph was struggling in faith going in an out.
He felt sick confused to this end there can be no doubt. 
Then there were days he felt totally fine.
Joseph knew that faith in God that all given days were divine.

As in your career, your job, your health was for your life.
You ponder about family, friends, and you worry about their strife.
Like your workplace as you have to deal with Associates and CEO’s.
Making money with you knowledge it’s a grind a terrible M.O.

In your office are you thinking of only business?
Well Joseph had an office and He thought of Mary, He thought at first what a mess.
This is something very disturbing to him, he was stressed.
He was ridiculed, prodded, threatened but what was to come next? An angel appeared and from that point on he was blessed.

You see, all on this earth stays on this earth, us as humans have families and in the end can’t escape death.
“Dust to dust” the Lord says, understanding God’s love the Holy Spirit gives knowledge in your every breath.

Back to your spiritual job, your office Yes’ your inner voice speaks to you inwardly out of love.
When you put aside work, family, and look to God, you thank Him for His coming paradise the Spiritual Loving Dove.
Joseph listened to God not men, went to Egypt, Herod died, the Son of God returned to Nazareth.
Originally it took Joseph from his job, through faith He accepted God’s path and did his job, he fulfilled destiny he took a great leap of Spiritual Faith.

    Your wonderful prose should inspire men and women to tune into the Holy Spirit at all times, never depending on our own wisdom as we can not see tomorrow nor the next hour. Keep sharing Robert. You may not get a lot of comments, but someone who needs to hear this, will read it and be blessed. Love, annalise
