Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

I’m the guy who measures every step,
Using mental calculations
And weighing risks and balances
With my careful estimations.

I would never move an inch
’Til concerns were safely weighed;
Then I’d move with strict preciseness
By the calculations gauged.

Now I’m leaping, half insane,
On the paths where God has lead,
What is this? – This isn’t me—
I should tread with care, instead!

But my calculations missed
The safety of God’s loving hands,
I can leap wherever He beckons—
I’ll be safe in His perfect plans.

Love the name of your blog--not to mention the poetry! Have you thought about putting a "subscribe" button on the site so people can sign up and have your blog come directly to their in-boxes? It makes it easier for us to keep up with blogs we like.

This is a wonderful poem that exactly describes the way I approach life. As an example, I noticed you used a proper apostrophe on your 'Tis. Most people end up having a backwards one. As you can tell, I seriously need to heed your message. ;)
