In a comment on my last poem, my dear friend Patricia (who is one of many of you who's prayers have help me through a very tough time) said that she can't wait to read about my lessons learned. I gave her a quick summary. I thought to share it with all of you. Thank you again for your prayers, they carried me through
Humility is a lesson learned over and over again.
I am human, though saved through the Blood, I still battle a sinful nature
So much grace is needed to go thru everyday.
Going through everyday life in this environment has tested and pushed me around
Repeat temptations of my past show that I am not as “good” as I believe
Always a breath away from disaster, teetering on the edge of the abyss
Continued prayers from friends and family are powerful
Every prayer is answered and that God is good all the time
I now understand the song “I need You more, more than yesterday..."
So many times I’ve stumbled and yet more the Lord has picked me back up
Sincere love is shown through obedience, even if it is others obedience
Under His grace is where I want to be, for I am not able on my own
Faith is harder than it sounds
Faith is so powerful that a lot of the time it is the only thing that can sustain me
I confess that I am so weak, I need more of the Lord everyday
Christ’s sacrifice is still unfathomable to me.
I have learned to thank God for all things
Every time I stray, He calls me back
Never think that God has abandoned you
Temptations are everywhere, even the ones you thought conquered already.
I will praise God in all things.
Always read the Word, it sustains you.
Many days I focused on the world, yet the Lord has called my attention back
Rain falls into our lives, it grows the seed in our heart
Even when I am weak, He is strong
Doubt creeps into a heart so easily, Faith can conquer that doubt
Eat of the Daily Bread, it sustains life
Enjoy the blessings in your life, even if you have to stop and look for them.
Many blessings are overlooked by looking at everything else
Evil is in the world, but great is He that is in me, than that in the world
Do not try to fight battles on your own
