Thank You, Father,
for giving me the courage
to say the things that are hard to say
and the right Bible verses to support
the things I say.
Forgive my straight forwardness
that can provoke some.
I'm a friend to many and family to some
and I can't just sit here
passing my days
going to dialysis, waiting
for my time to come to an end
hearing what the Spirit tells me
as I read Your Word.
If I didn't say anything
what kind of friend or family member would I be?
Would I be a loving friend or family member
if I sat idle and quiet?
Isn't it said:
Whoever spares the rod hates his son,
but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him?
(Proverbs 13: 24)
And we're all looking for some kind of healing, Father,
Many of us suffer from various ailments.
One thing I've learned from experience is:
Whoever despises the Word brings destruction on himself,
but he who reveres the commandment will be rewarded.
(Proverbs 13: 13)
I'm doing the best of my ability to teach what I learn.
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
that one may turn away from the snares of death.
I know my work is not perfect.
I will not let that stop me from trying each day.
Thank You for picking me up
every time others and mainly I
knock myself down.
If it is Your will,
perfect the things in me
and my works
that I may be presentable
to stand before You.
I ask this in Jesus' name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
