Ten Minutes of Fame Remembered

Ten minutes of fame Remembered


Ten minutes of fame

Should have been of shame

If I had resisted and refused

To be lifted by those boys

 Who carried me like a toy.

But thank God for the word

 In season which I heard:

‘You better join them

It would have been mayhem.


But God turned it into humour

Which today, I savour.


A lesson in humility

That brings victory

Not taking yourself seriously

Trusting in His security

And His sovereignty.


And when you’re forced

To the jobcentre

And threatened with security

You have to trust in His security.

To keep you against that Day

As He works out His way.

Another lesson in humility

On the road to destiny.


And when you cannot pay your rent

It is surely yet another dent

To look to Him and trust

That you will never rust.


He is burning off the dross

And putting on the gloss

Bringing out the beauty

Thrashing out the glory.

Adding glimmer and glamour.


6     But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: ” God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
