I’ve been talking with God a lot these days.
It’s a good thing He is used to some of the language popping out of my head and mouth in moments of disbelief and frustration.
Here is a little bit of the conversation I had today:
Dear Lord, Please help me be still and listen–really listen–before I respond. Help me remember the power in silence.
Help me remember all my family members who sacrificed so much of their time to help my family. Help me to find a way to help others in that same spirit of true compassion.
Father, help me use the lessons I’ve been given and successfully learned to help others. There are many who are facing some of the same problems.
Please help me continue to learn and grow as I face what feels like overwhelming challenges daily. Help me stay strong and in connection with you.
In this crazy world, I believe in the power and forgiveness of you, my God. Please guide me to where I am needed and help me understand what I am here to do.
Thank you for listening, God. Thank you for never giving up on me and for always–always–loving me–unconditionally.
Thank you, Debbie Long, for sharing your beautiful photo with me to use in today’s story. I treasure you and send you thanks and much love. xoxo
