The Big Dipper
Jan 16, 2002
By: Rick L. King
I was looking at the sky
On one starry night
I saw all the stars
And how they did shine, so bright.
I saw the Big Dipper
And wondered why it was there
So I asked the Lord about it
And to this, I became aware.
Jesus said, let this cup pass from Me
Yet not My will, but Thy will be done
I submit to My Father
I chose to be an obedient, Son.
As I considered what Jesus said to me
I believe it is there, as a sign
I think that God placed it in the sky
To help me to remember, His will not mine.
Now when I look at the Big Dipper
Iíll always be reminded of the Words of Godís Son
Though the cup of sorrows He was to bear
He said not My will, but Thy will, be done.
I think that our darkness comes
Because of our will, that gets in the way
We are just like Jesus
When He said, let this cup, pass away.
Though not what His will wanted
He surrendered to Godís will alone
God had a higher plan for Jesus
As His being obedient, our sins, He atoned
As we see the Big Dipper
May we see through our night
As submission to His will
Will turn our darkness, into new light.
