~~ Without You ~~

Post by Jeff Guest » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:35 am

~Without You~

Without you Lord life is meaningless
How could I have been so very blind?
Please accept this broken man home
Feeling your Grace just one more time

Please forgive the mistakes I've made
Touch me with Your Love once again
Carry me thru- this lonely valley
Save me from these demons within

Guide each step that leads to you
Hold my hand as I travel each day
My prayers are now but faint whispers
Please help me to find my way

Hold me close to Your Heart once more
Open mine so I may also truly live
Teach me again the lessons forgotten
Into Your hands this life that I give…

Jeff, a very heartfelt poem and I sometime have to plead for forgiveness. He know our hearts and we're weak humans who have to ask daily for forgiveness. Bless you and you'll make it through those pearly gates. Sincerely, Brenda

JEFF, I JUST OPENED THIS EMAIL, AND HAD TO SHAKE MYSELF !! YES I DID !! READ THIS, I THINK IT WAS MEANT FOR YOU....

"Elder's Meditation of the Day - July 13

"Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and You are older than all need, older than all prayer...You are the life of all things."
-- Black Elk, OGLALA SIOUX

Great Spirit - Sometimes I don't feel like praying. Sometimes when I have done something wrong, I'm ashamed to come to You. Even though You have always been there for me, I sometimes choose to stay away. It's hard for me to understand what all knowing is. Sometimes it's hard for me to see how much You really care. But I know if I take a few minutes and think about what I know to be true about You, the things change and I am able to realize Your power and Your love. Today, I'll start by thinking of You. I'll think about all the times You have helped and guided me in the past. You are life, You are love, You are power, You are desire, You are truth, You are principle, You are intelligence, You are courage. With You I am everything; without You I am nothing.

Creator, thank You for allowing me to start my day with You. "



I DON'T BELIEVE THIS WAS A COINCIDENCE, MY DEAR FRIEND !!! LOVE, LINNER

Jeff,

I just saw your beautiful poem and it deeply touched my heart. It is so hard to keep on track all the time. I feel like I am unworthy and fail Him everyday. But, I heard a sermon yesterday that said that we must forgive ourselves or we are not receiving all the blessings that He wants to share with us. If we don't forgive ourselves, we are not trusting in His promise. We must trust Him enough to know that there is nothing that we can do that will separate us from the love of God.

Once we belong to Him, nothing can remove us from His hand. You are always searching for the answers to what will allow you to forgive yourself. I went through years of that and I was miserable. The answers are in God's Word. You are His Child. When He looks at you, He sees Jesus. That is the truth. He will no more abandon you than He will Jesus. Trust Him. You are His and nothing will ever change that. The poem is beautiful and it is good for us to examine ourselves, but He "chose" you for eternity! He keeps His promises!!!

Blessings, my friend,
Karen

Lord I've tried so many times
To walk this path alone....
Oh God I cannot take one step,
On my very own.

I need your hand to take a stand,
and keep me on my feet,
Sometimes I crawl, then hear your call,
And run back into your keep.


I thank you Lord, for loving me,
And giving me the strength..
To rise above and feel your love
Oh how you care for me!

So tenderly you call my name
and knock upon my heart,
You say to me, "My child, come on,
Come to the light from dark!"

Oh how bright your light does shine,
Within this heart of mine!
Thank you Lord, for loving me,
And doing it all the time!

Pokey
