Dear God

Yesterday was difficult as you know, and I’ve been asking more of you again; “Take this off my hands, heal me, save this person, forgive me, give me strength – blah blah blah.”

After a while it must get old hearing all these pleas from me. I try to say thank you every day, and I am keeping my promises by always keeping my faith – no matter what; I am not being hardened by the world.

But I am so tired because every time I think everything is going much better, some horrible or trying event comes to fruition. You know all that I am saying already.

You know my silent prayers and my special needs. You always lift the weight off my shoulders if I just remember that you promised you would! I work hard to let go, but sometimes I just kind of fall prey to life for a time.

Events led to so many tears since yesterday. I have carried on.
I went to physical therapy today and the therapist said, “Hello Sunshine.” Immediately I felt a rush of tears push their way to my eyes.

Your miracles never cease to amaze me and that is why I am writing tonight. To my amazement, after physical therapy, the therapist asked if we could pray together. His prayer was real, and it reminded me of your power and promises, and elevated me. He told me not to worry about crying and reminded me of the passage in the Bible, “Jesus wept.” He suggested I bring my prayers to you on paper. I never expected to pray at the therapist’s office – but you always provide when I am falling.

I just want to thank you. You know my heart of hearts and all my needs and desires. I want to thank you for replenishing me over and over again. I want to thank you for every single thing I take for granted.

Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your enduring love.

Thank you for the Dragonfly that sat upon a stick nestled in the dirt to hold my tomato plants. It let me get within half an inch to take this photo. It turned his head, and I swear, looked at me. My wings are broken like his, and he keeps flying!

Thank you for causing me to be in the back yard just at the perfect time to see this amazing cloud at sunset. I ran to get my camera, snapped it, and when I put my camera down and turned to see it in a minute or so….it was gone.

It reminded me to capture each moment you have allotted me as a living soul, and to treasure all the small miracles you present to me every day.

Thank you Lord. Thank you for you, and for loving me. I trust your will be done.

I love you.

In Jesus’ magnificent name I pray.
Amen

    Hi. Marsha,
    I hope you are feeling better now. I pray for your good health and well being. The more you write, the more you will feel better. Thank you for sharing your deepest feelings.

      For me, I think I write far better than I speak. My heart seems to roll out in the written word, and I thank God for that because sometimes I think it is healing to “get things out in the open”. If we harbor bad feelings or any kind of hatred or an unforgiving attitude, we are the ones who suffer. From your writing to me, I think I already have a fairly good idea of the kind do person you are. You are a decent and caring person who is seeking life and wanting to grow and walk the right path. I sincerely like you!
      Have a beautiful day, my friend, and God bless you!

    So sweet for you to take the time to read and comment. At this point I am “hobbling” instead of running, but persistent!
