Setting His Mind

When God sets His mind
      to do a thing,
Some will always say,
So, don't be afraid,
      with an open mind,
      a searching heart,
ask around and see.

When God sets His mind
     and begins to move,
He looks toward folks,
     He figures can help.
Just ordinary souls,
     sometimes doubters,
     sometimes skeptics,
folks like you and me.

When God sets His mind,
     He calls, not coerces.
The old and worn out,
      like Zechariah.
The very young,
      "it can't be Mary,"
      "no way, Joseph"
regular folks everyone.

(Luke 1:18, 34; Matthew 1:19)
