I stood alone on the seashore to watch the setting sun.
Pictures of my life floated before me on the mighty waves.
I saw whole chunks of sinful acts dash against the rocks,
And disappear into the ocean depths never to come up again.
‚ÄúHow did this happen Lord?‚ÄĚ I asked in childish wonder.
‚ÄėMy sins were so many, how could they vanish?‚Äô I thought,
‚ÄúI said that I will cast them in the depths of the ocean,‚ÄĚ He said.
I bowed to thank Him and my mind flew to childhood days.
‚ÄúMom when would Dad come and take us home?‚ÄĚ I asked.
We were at aunt‚Äôs house for baby brother was born there-
‚ÄúPray to God, my child, He will bring Dad soon,‚ÄĚ said Mom.
God heard this child‚Äôs prayer and gave Dad leave to take us home.
I looked with awe as the scene of my awesome miracle passed by,
The doctor‚Äôs verdict was, ‚ÄúWe have to do this surgery ASAP.‚ÄĚ
I had no means and asked the church and friends to pray for me.
Three days later a scan showed that the huge tumor had vanished!
My mind was like a movie screen, showing God‚Äôs care for me.
He showed all the times He had saved me and mine from danger;
Apostle Paul‚Äôs words in II Corinthians 11:26 & 27 rang in my ears-
I thanked like him for all the troubles that God had saved me from.
As I grew my prayer life blossomed like a goodly tree full of fruits.
I looked to Him for all, my needs and praised His holy name always.
As night peaked, I breathed a prayer of thanksgiving to the Almighty.
You too can trust Him always and touch Him with a word of prayer.
