Our God

Faith.
God wants us
to trust and believe in Him.
Suffering and pain is not apart of the plan
but they will be used as stepping-stones
to mold us and make us stronger than we are.

Love.
God loves us.
He wants us to be happy and live in peace.
Though the world is polluted
with many unpleasant things,
His beauty is all around us
if we just look and see.

Listen.
God wants us to listen when He speaks.
He’s always guiding and protecting us.
He wants us to follow where He leads.
Eternal life is ours, it’s free.
All we have to do is surrender
our heart to Him and He will set us free.

My Prayer Confession

I often pray for many things,
materialism sometimes tops the list
of my premeditated prayers.

Many times I forget to open my heart,
or better yet, pray from it.

Praying sometimes seemed like a chore
that I hurried to get done,
after I have exhausted myself with worries and stress,
only to feel emptier and more deserted
after my attempt at laying all my burdens down
at God’s feet.
