This Will Be Our Walk

Thanks to God

I pray that this will bless you as it blessed me.

Hello God,
I called tonight
To talk a little while
I need a friend who'll listen
To my anxiety and trial.
You see, I can't quite make it
Though a day just on my own. . .
I need your love to guide me,
So I'll never feel alone.
I want to ask you please to keep
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they're bound.
Give me faith, dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.
I thank you God for being home
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.
Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.
So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night, God, I love You too,
And I'll call again tomorrow!

The man whispered, "God, speak to me,"
and a meadowlark sang!

But, the man did not hear!

So the man yelled, "God, speak to me,"
and the thunder rolled across the sky.

But, the man did not listen!

The man looked around and said, "God, let me see you,"
and a star shined brightly.

But, the man did not see!

And, the man shouted, "God, show me a miracle,"
and a life was born.

But, the man did not notice!

So, the man cried out in despair,
"Touch me God, and let me know you are here."
Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man,
but he brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

I found this to be a great reminder that God is always around us,
in the little and simple things that we take for granted --
even in our electronic age,
so I would like to add one more:

The man cried out, "God, I need your help!"
And an e-mail arrived reaching out
with good news and encouragement,
But, the man deleted it and continued to cry.

Don't miss out on a blessing because it is not packaged the way that you expect.

Expect the Unexpected!

Have a Great Day!
