The group Volunteers for the Lord remind us that we can be rich in spirit even when we are poor. I was moved as I listened to the words of thanks for God’s many blessings.
Many of us know the story about the man who was feeling miserable because he had no shoes. The man’s perspective changes when seeing a man with no feet. The man was no longer sorry for himself having no shoes. God’s blessings took on a different perspective.
In reflecting upon the blessings of enough food to eat, a beautiful home to live in and my wife, Karen, who loves me so deeply, I wrote this prayer poem.
Father, we thank You for Your love
The Holy Spirit sent from above
For hearing us when we call to You
For guiding us in all we do
For the power of a Savior’s love
For the symbol of peace in the dove
Peace for you and peace for me
For grace that sets us free
Hear our cries in the lonely night
Keep us all walking upright
Draw us to Your bleeding, wounded side
Let us in You our sins confide
We praise You in the morning’s sun
We’ll fight for You ’til our work is done
And when You call us to Heaven
We’ll thank You most of all for sins forgiven
