Praising God for theGift of a New Day

July 14, 2019

sunny day

 

It’s been raining long and hard

And gray skies were all I could see.

But today is different,

Or perhaps I am,

For I see a bright spot

Glowing through the

Clouds of morning.

I shall dance!

Dancing with the raindrops

And celebrating the sun

Am I

For today is

A new day

And the Lord has blessed it!

FOOLISH HUMANS!

July 10, 2019

If I was passed a glass of poison to drink, I would destroy it – not drink it.  God would urge me to.  He loves me.

Oh, the hug He gives!

Why then, when anxiety plagues me in so many painful ways, do I hold onto it and make myself sick?  Lose my joy?  Perhaps cause others to follow this wrong path with me?

Turn to Him, ask for help, turn it over!

 

DO NOT PICK IT BACK UP!

THE FALL

WHISPERS SPEAK LOUDER

June 24, 2019

You walk beside me

and hold my hand.

I STUMBLE AND FRET

WONDERING . . .

“WHERE ARE YOU?”

I pray,

knowing you love me.

My fear shouts.

Despite the heat,

I shiver . . .

I feel alone.

The voices of my loneliness

are so loud that panic sets in.

I jump!

“What WAS that?”

and see the bird.

They are so beautiful that I stop  . . .

softly,

sweetly,

the birds upstage my fear

and I know your presence.

Foolishly,

I forgot your promises,

your love.

I knelt beneath the tree

and wept.

I called, needing your nearness

and realized you were always there.

Your love lifted me up

AS ALWAYS.
