Thank you my Lord for safely guiding me through the trials
and troubles of this world.For I am
able to rise above them when I apply what you have taught me through Your word.
Thank you Father for teaching me that I should make the best
of everything that comes my way.For you
have taught me to live life with a joyful heart and praise upon my lips for you
and your Son.
Thank you Father for teaching me how to recognize your
voice.For when my soul hears your
counsel, I am able to make the right decisions and accomplish your will.
Thank you Father for my husband who is wiser and more knowledgeable
on worldly matters than I.For he helps me
to navigate my way through the briars and brambles that I often get entangled
in, along the path that leads to you.
Thank you Father for showing me that I need to put all worldly
concerns in the right perspective.For
you have helped me to see and understand that the only things that matter in
this world are You and Your Son, Jesus.
I also thank you Father for this cool morning air and the
gentle rain falling over all that you have made.
Thank you for the easy breezes that whisper of your eternal
Thank you for this quiet time to sit upon your lap and to feel
your arms wrapped around me.
And thank you Father for letting me rest my head upon your
shoulder for just a moment, immersed in the peace that only you can give.
I love you dearly,
To Father God,
How beautiful are thy ways.How wonderful are your creations.For you are wise and you know all things.You know of each one of the hairs on our
head.You know our talents and you know
our weaknesses.You know what will make
us laugh and you know what touches our soul and brings tears to our eyes.
You have so many children in all parts of the world.Some are weak, some are strong.Some are dark and some are light.You have a plan for each one that you choose
or call. A destiny you have mapped out
based on the talents and abilities you put inside them at their birth.
Some of those talents and abilities blossom as each one of
your children grows and matures in your sight and under your watchful eye.Some of those children however, get
entrenched and heavy laden with the trappings and hindrances of this
world.And those talents and abilities
never find their way to the surface.And
that child never reaches the destiny you had planned for him.Never truly knows who he or she really
is.Never finds the true peace and
happiness with you that you had planned for that child when you first created
For many children did not know that you were their spiritual
Father.They did not know they were to
come to you each morning and reach out to you for a loving embrace and praise
your name for giving them the breath of life.They did not know that if they listened very quietly they could hear you
talking to them, in the still of the night or in the early morning hours. They did not know you loved them dearly and
only wanted the best for them and wanted to fill their lives with peace, love,
It must put tears in your eyes to see them continually
stumble and fall and to be hurt inside by the callousness, greed, and
corruption of the world they are living in.For they did not listen for your voice to lead them in the right
direction, they only heard the world's voice that led them astray.
Oh Father God, how heart-breaking it must be to see so many
children go astray.I pray that I might
help to bring some back to you, that they would not be lost as I once was.

Listening for Your Voice
I await the sound of your voice within.I listen for your words of sweet wisdom.I listen for your Spirit of guidance to lead
me through the daylight hours.For to
hear from you is a joy, an exhilaration, a longing satisfied.I listen for even a word from you, a phrase, or
a sentence from your Bible.I am
receptive to the thoughts that you may desire to communicate to me.
Like turning the dial of a radio, to tune in a particular station,
I search for the frequency that I need that will enable me to bring in your
voice distinctly and clearly.I try not
to snatch up my own words or thoughts but try to sit perfectly still and quiet,
gathering and recording only the words that float into my awareness that might
be from you.With anticipation and
excitement I await the feather-like sound of your voice.
The birds have begun their chorus to welcome this new day,
rejoicing with praises to your eternal beauty.Therefore, I will listen for your voice each morning, My Lord.For the possibility that I might hear from
you will be a strong enough motivation to cause me to leap from my bed and
leave my dreamy state.Meeting you in
the morning before dawn is like going to meet my first love.It is like awaiting a phone call or a knock
at the door from the one who has captured my heart.It is like going to the window to watch for
the arrival of my precious one.
And yet there is no hint of disappointment, or fear of a
broken heart as is often the case with humans who are so untrustworthy.For with you, my Lord, there is only
excitement upon the possibility of catching a glimpse of you, or upon hearing
your gentle whisper.There is only a
joyful anticipation and the hope of possibly touching the hem of your heavenly
robe as you pass by.Will I catch a
quick glance of your shadow as I peer into the lattice work of your
With you my Lord, there is no fear of being forsaken, or of
being tossed aside like an old shoe, if perchance you find another to take my
place.Your love is not like the
temporary affections of this world, which are so fickle.Your love is as constant and steady as the
incoming tides of the sea.Your promises
are solid and secure with no turning in them.
You are my sweet Father in heaven, and I am so thankful to
you for lifting the sleep from my eyes, so that I could come to this place to meet
with you this morning.
Love you dearly,

Which Words Will be
Dear Father God,
Which words should be chosen to take the journey to your
heavenly dwelling place, my Lord?As I
watch the parade of ideas passing through my thoughts, which combination of
words so carefully and precisely placed together are worthy of going on this
most sacred and holy trip?New words are
needed that are as vibrant and refreshing as the dazzling array of colors and
shapes, flipping and falling, through the eyepiece of a kaleidoscope.
In order to flawlessly complete the letters that are to be delivered
to your throne room, words are requested that are delightful to the soul and
soothing to the spirit.Are there any
words that have not been thought of nor previously used that are deserving of
this fine position? Therefore, before
this letter of love can be sent on its way, a request is put in for words of ample
courage, valor, and righteousness that are worthy enough to be read by You,
Father, the Creator of all.
As this written piece is meticulously shaped and molded and
thoughts of you are carefully and lovingly translated onto paper, I will continue
to kneel while in the presence of your majestic glory.I will bow my head in reverence to your holy
and perfect name.
As the time of your return to this worldly sphere draws
nearer, the stars in the heavens will put on their most sparkling and festive attire
to light the way for You and Your Son.Hundreds of thousands of angels will line up along the route to usher in
your return, while heralding your Almighty power and grace as you pass by.
As you draw closer to this world, all creatures and
recipients of your precious breath of life, will put aside their scheduled
appointments and daily routines to stand at attention in your presence, my
As the time of your long awaited arrival draws closer, the
earth now trembles with anticipation and excitement, for once again all of
creation on this earth will be in the presence of the King of kings, and Lord
Father, I too will be anxiously awaiting your return, with my sonnet for you finally
completed, etched out with tears of longing, to finally be near your side.For I desire to write of my love for you
through all eternity.
