I am reaching upward and onward

Trials come to us all, and if my posts are sparse momentarily, it is because I am rising above what I consider a great loss in my life so I offer something I love to you:
“Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade, and yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find me, unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of muy fate: I am the captain of my soul.”

I come to you God, humbly when I am distraught, when I am alone with my thoughts and my behaviors that have dishonored you in the midst of my days of life, this brief moment of time.

I come to you at a loss, and with loss, for I can tell no one else my heart’s distress and my sorrow. No one should be, nor can be burdened with remorse of my own making. Whether yesterday, today, or tomorrow, I appeal for forgiveness and the forgiveness in the cause of those I may have injured in the error of my days. I humbly pray for guidance and the return of joys you desire for the creatures of your making. I thank you now for your enduring love and the forgiving kindness you offer to the undeserved. I thank you for the healing of my heart…

“The light of God surrounds us all. The love of God enfolds us all. The power of God protects us all, and the Presence of God watches over us all. Where ever we are, God IS.”

    Bless you, Marsha, in your time of trial. I certainly pray that it is short lived and that God brings good out of it.

    Thank you Frannie for your blessings. I keep the faith. God’s love is enduring and certainly (many times)-we are undeserving, yet reap the rewards of true love. I am doing much better.
