God is Ever Present   Leave a comment

The distance between us sometimes seems so vast

Although I know that you are here

Your presence closer than my breath

The very breath of life you gave to each of us at birth

 

In your foreknowledge you would know how I’d grow through

Every challenge, every victory, the pains, and the regrets

An adolescent not adhering to your direction I entertained temptations

While by your infinite patience and foreknowledge you knew one day upon awakening I would come to know you and thank you each and every day

 

This may not seem to me to be the most enlightened time

Or the brightest moment in my life

But still I can exclaim with certainty

That I am yours and you are mine with love our guiding force

To satisfy the longing of our closeness that brings to each of us your peace, your love, your rest

The Power of God’s Love So Healing   1 comment

Is there something I’m not seeing

Up there in the clouds

The sunlight casting shadows

Still they seem the same

But how I see has changed

 

Activities are overtaken

By doctors, tests, an orthopedist and a dentist to add to the rest

Sometimes this blurs my vision

And challenges my faith

But like needing weights for greater muscle

Gives me reason to stand the test

 

Faith grows stronger especially when its tested

She is greater and ever present

To combat any storm

And gives to me new vision

To be inspired not forlorn

 

Let me not forget the power of giving thanks

Like water to a starving plant

Drown me in your love dear God

And saturate my soul with the gift of your living Spirit

May I consider always the needs of others with prayers and the power of your love

This gives me evidence of your presence

And your will and mine in peace become as one
