"This is my Father's world. O let me never forget,
that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father's world! Why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King, let heaven ring! God reigns, let the earth be glad!"
We sang that today in church. I really like that song...it is a good
reminder that God is bigger. Bigger than my problems and bigger
than the world's problems. He is good, and he is King!
I also read this prayer in the Valley of Vision a few days ago:
"O my Saviour, help me.
I am so slow to learn, so prone to forget, so weak to climb;
I am in the foothills when I should be in the heights;
I am pained by my graceless heart, my prayerless days,
my poverty of love, my sloth in the heavenly race,
my sullied conscious, my wasted hours, my unspent opportunities.
I am blind while light shines around me...
Give me increase and progress in grace so that there may be
more decision in my character, more vigour in my purposes,
more elevation in my life, more fervour in my devotion,
more constancy in my zeal. As I have a position in this world,
keep me from making this world my position.
May I never seek in the creation
that which can only be found in the creator."
Okay thats all for now! Peace out =)
