Because Your ways are not my ways, Father,
help me learn to view everything from Your perspective
that each of my adversities be turning into a moment of teaching.
May Your love settle in my heart dissolving all bitterness and blame
as I surrender to Your will.
For so long Iíve packed You away, saving You for certain moments,
with my biggest hope being I would never have to take You out,
I see now that was wrong
because I need You in every aspect of my life.
No matter what it is, whether it be small or large,
I need You , Father.
I need You more than the air I breathe to stay alive.
So I ask, Father, that when life is most difficult,
help me remember that You have a purpose for it
and that I am being nourished in Your truth which will bear spiritual fruit.
Enable me to rejoice knowing that You are building my endurance.
I can feel it growing, and I know there is still more growing that must take place.
So help me not give in to fears of the mind which try to hold me back,
Instead, I will take each step knowing and trusting You are guiding my steps.
Thank You, Father, for the grace You show day after day,
for through it I am able to speak of all Your wonders
knowing that You are here to provide more than I can ever imagine,
hope or ask.
All that I do ask, Father, I ask in Jesusí name,
Holy, Holy, Holy. Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
God is here for everyone. He wants us to call on Him in times of trouble and praise Him at all times for the bounties He provides. I can see that you are open to His Will, Herman. Don't stop writing .. your words resound what so many hearts are searching for and what only God can supply.
