A BEAUTIFUL PRAYER

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.

 

His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
it isn’t granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own! ,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might  enjoy life.
God said, No.

I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

 

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said…Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
May God Bless You,
“To the world you might be one person, but  to one
person you just might be the world”

“Even the word ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ says ‘I M POSSIBLE’ “

The Lord is my strength,
My eternal guiding light.
He stands with me in the sunshine,
Calms me through the stormy nights.

He stands with me on the mountain tops.
He walks with me upon the beach,
When it is His guidance

That my heart does seek.

Always there to pick me up,

When I fall on bended knees;
He is The Captain of my ship,

As we sail across the seas.

He is in each and every breath I take,
In every path within my sight.
When I take life’s daily journey,
I pray my choices have been right.

He greets me with the morning,

As each new day awakes.
His canvas is the earth and sky.
What a beautiful sight it makes.

He renews the strength with in my heart.
My faith shall never falter.
For, when I sing His loving praise,
My soul becomes even stronger.
