Love Walks with Me

God's love never fails

Father, help me walk with You today

Take time to come before You and pray

Love those You call me to each day

Talk with You as I go along my way

When others hurt and I don’t know what to say

Let them see my heart come what may

When I speak to others carefully my thoughts weigh

Give me Your strength to let my yes be yes and my nay be nay

You alone are my hope and stay

You are with me in my work and play

You are with me in both blue skies and grey

I love You more than words can ever say

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. Thank you for this post, kind sir. It helped me deal with the sin of pride.

  2. Thank you for your heart-felt comments.

    Pride is a tough thing many of us struggle with. How did this piece help you deal with that? Please always remember that no matter how much we mess up God loves us all.

    God works on the flaws in our character as we are willing to be changed within. Think of the diamond. It didn’t start out that way. It was originally a piece of coal that through a process of refining becomes a diamond.

    For many years because of physical and emotional abuse from my schizophrenic father, I dealt with this gnawing feeling that I had to prove to others that I was not the failure my father said I was. I too had to wrestle with the sin of pride because in seeking to prove myself to others I forgot that in my faith what God thought about me was what really mattered.

    What neither God nor I would want though is for you to have any sense of ongoing guilt.

    When I have said something to my wife, Karen, without thinking, I ask for God’s and her forgiveness. We try to follow the Biblical teaching to not let the sun go down on our anger (Ephesians 4:26).

    The Enemy can use continued guilt over sin to keep us in a trap where we find it difficult to receive forgiveness. No, Lord, I’m not worthy of Your love. The truth is that none of us are. All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). But God doesn’t want any one of us living in any false guilt such as happens with many who have been abused.

    If pride is getting in the way of your relationship with God, you can be assured that He will deal with it in His way with love.

    I pray that what I have shared has reached you where you need most.

    The peace and abiding comfort of the Lord be with you.

    Kevin
