By G. P. Avants

“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11: 30



Got it.

The work ahead

Is plan to see.

“If it’s meant to be,

It’s up to me.”

(That’s what they tell me.)

The Plow

I grab the plow,

My back I bow,

Flex and bent

All day

From beginning to end.

Yet when I view

The fruit of my labor,

My field looks no different

Then the unworked one

Of my neighbor.

Not a dent did I make

From the sweat of my brow

Yet tomorrow’s the same

Though I know this will grow.



This isn’t a one-man job.

No, in fact it’s one made

For man and his God.

Pulling together

Not grasping at odds.

That silly idea

Doesn’t sound so bad

Right now.

So, I take Him

At His word.


MDG : Seed : Plowing a field and sowing seeds in Ethiopia

Pull and strain,

Sun or rain,

Alongside the Lord.

A heavy load

Looking behind,

When all is done;

The field is plowed

The work of God

Is done.

Man in wheat field
