Thankful for the Light

Gratitude

Psalm 107:13-15
New International Version (NIV)

13 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
and broke away their chains.
15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind,


Scared Grateful

Wouldn’t it be dandy
Wouldn’t it be fine
If we would be grateful
By sharing our time

Not to be so wrapped up
In our own little plan
That we paid attention
And gave a helping hand

Even changing a light bulb
Can be quite a chore
If the light fixture that’s broken
Is twelve feet off the floor

Or maybe, just maybe
There’s a lad or a lass
That has a real problem
With their algebra class

And sure you could give money
To that homeless man
But he might be happier
If you just shook his hand

It’s a sad state of affairs
That we all find ourselves in
When we’re lonely and broken
But too scared to be friends

We’d rather sit safely
Within our own cloistered room
Than to reach out in love
And put an end to our gloom

Father,

Give me courage today to break free from my fear. To reach out in the dark and offer what small light I possess and to grab hold of what light I can find. May I never grow weary of doing good or of sharing Your Light.

Thank You for every blessing, every good gift.

    • Thank you for the kind words. I believe that God speaks through our prayers. I’m often surprised that after I write some prayers someone will say something like, ” Oh, that spoke to me so much!”
      I usually have to admit that quite often what I wrote may not speak to me at all, but then it wasn’t meant for me. I’m glad that God spoke to you through my tiny light. May you always find yourself…In His Embrace.
