Here I am Lord on my way to work again but you
already knew that didnít you! My journey with you is so
adventurous sometimes Iím way up on that mountain
and sometimes Iím down in that valley. I think itís times
in between when I am most comfortable its kind of like
being in limbo not up or down just a nice mellow
in between. I know itís the trials that make us all strong
its hearing from you God that makes them worth while
not only are we more intimate with You and we get to
know You better but we actually learn exactly how strong
we really are. I love when it all comes together like when
You speak through people and books, music and yes even
to your heart, that audible voice that comes to me when
Iím driving down the road and You say that one thing! WHAT!
Is that you Lord? What a funny thing to say.
So you start to think about it and it makes perfect sense.
You begin to think I get it! Youíre not done with me yet,
well thatís pretty obvious I can feel your nudging me all the
way to the next town! I have heard people say how can you
believe in a God you canít see? I say how can you not?
How sad it makes you father to see this crazy world making
all these mistakes. My Father my God says itís up to me to
try and change these people by being a good witness
to them WOW! Is that ever hard, I say Father what
am I suppose to do? My own life is so crazy! My God
says but you have me to lean on they have nothing but
the world and all the crazy directions its going in. They are
constantly going around the same mountain over and over again.
You can be that light the example of my love
if you do it, they will come! Remember when you came to me?
You saw the light and now itís up to you to be the light.
Itís that old saying what goes around comes around.
Oh Lord I love you so much but I canít do this without you!
I know that is whyI left the comforter, I gave you a sword
a helmet and a shield I even gave you shoes I give you total
access to myself any time you need me Iím there all you
have to do is ask! Oh father, you must love me a whole
lot to put up with all the nonsense that I give you. I know
what is right and what is wrong but sometime I get so confused
with all the world has to offer! I do love you so much I know
you are there every time I cry out in pain, every time I am sad
and especially when I am happy, you love to see your children
with smiling faces and happy thoughts I know this brightens your
day and gladdens your heart! Well as you know Iím here.
I have to go punch in now. But you know what?
Iím going to do my best to bring you lost souls because
I just love to HEAR you smile! Talk to you on the way home.
Bless You Father

What a comforting and calming way to start a working day; talking to the Lord. We all should start our days like you do.

Well done!!
I thought it may flow smoother if you maybe put God's words in itallics, then you would not have to say God said and I said. Anyways I did enjoy this because I tend to have ongoing dialogue in my head with my Best Friend too :D
