Living Lessons Learned From my Lord


Just like you, I have a bible. As I have read it these thoughts emerged…


It is written: “Sing unto the Lord a new song.”

I said: “But Lord, I don’t know the words or the melody.”

He said: “That’s okay. We’ll just make them up as we walk together.”


It is written: “Jesus wept.”

I said: “Why, Lord?”

He said: “Because I care.”


It is written: “Oh, my soul is cast down.”

I said: “And my life is falling apart.”

He said. “Why don’t we just get up and soar higher in my keeping?”


It is written: “Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”

I said: “You want me to be rough and ready?”

He said: “No. I want you to depend on me.”


It is written: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.”

I said:(after breaking my leg) “These crutches and this cast really do dismay me. I hate this!”

He said: “You did not hear me. Fear not, for I am with you in all your life lessons; be not dismayed for I am your God.”


My final conversation is between you and me. “I hope He has spoken to you through my life battles; and you will not be dismayed, for He is your God, too.”

You used one of my favorite verses ("be not dismayed...") and it seems that He teaches that lesson again and again! I like your approach here.

Note: capitalize "Bible."

Creative writing, and great alliteration in your title.
