BEFORE I RISE

Post by Katie » Tue May 28, 2013 5:48 pm

Father
Before I rise this morning
Let me thank you for the beauty that resides outside my window
For the air I breathe
And for Your undying love
And Father
Before I rise
Let me remember
That greater joy is found when we look for ways to bless another before ourselves
Placing joy in the hearts of those we care about
Can make our hearts sing
Our Souls rejoice
And for you to quietly say "well done"
There is no greater joy then to warm the heart of the ones we love
Seeing them smile
Can bring our hearts to tears of joy
And bless us more then anything that could be placed at our feet
Spreading Your love Lord
Comes with the most wonderful feeling
Walk with me as I go about my day
Bless those I come in contact with
As well as the one dearest to my heart
That loves you more than words can say
And waits for the sun to rise outside his wind
So he too can bow his head
And in his gentle voice pray
Lord
Before I rise
Help me to bless another before myself
And for those who reach out to me
Help me to find the words
To bring sunshine into their otherwise darkened world
Help me to be a lantern unto their feet
A welcome harbor
Strengthen my ears that I might hear them
Fill my heart with your compassionate understanding
Touch upon my spirit with your undying love
And make it all pleasing unto You
In Jesus Name I Pray
Thank You Lord
For the beauty outside our windows
For the blessings of a brand new day
Hear us as we gently say
I Love You Lord
Walk with me

Brenda & Eva, What Can I say? You both are way too kind with your praise. God should be regarded before we even as much as rise out of bed every morning, because our days dont start well without Him. Thank you both for stopping by and reading my write. I'm more than overjoyed that you enjoyed it as much as you did. I hope you both have a very blessed day.

GODS BLESSING TO YOU BOTH !!
