The Range of God’s Power

Thanks, God, for the little things

You hold up the heavens

and prevent endless dangers

that we don’t even know to thank you for

You are still in the miracle business

and heal cancer

You are still in the life changing business

and let little actions change lives

a random thought

a random meeting

a random cloud

all of these have changed my life

except they aren’t random

they are perfectly, lovingly placed

by You.

I wonder at Your creative power

in the sunset sky

I wonder at Your abounding love

washing dusty feet

I wonder at your wisdom

in Your Word

but I also wonder

at how you keep the stars aligned

and still listen to my small prayers

You answer my cries for peace

as well as my asking for wisdom on my english quiz

You answer my prayer for healing

as well as my prayer about not being late

The range of Your love

astounds me

Dear God – Thank You

Dear God,

I just want to say thank you. Thank you for helping me. Thank you for guiding me. Thank you for answering me even if the answer is no. Thank you for caring for me for no other reason besides that you chose to.

I know sometimes prayers are like grocery lists, just ticking off what we need or want. So I just want to say thank you for all that you have done. Thank you for answering me when I pray that you guide me through my answers on tests. Thank you for answering me when I pray for a loved one in need. Thank you for answering me when my mind won’t stop racing and I ask for peace.

Sometimes you answer our prayers, but we forget that we even asked and don’t notice the difference. God point out the little things to me. Help me take pleasure in the ordinary enable to see you better.

Help me see the good in everything. I am thankful for stressful days. It means I have something about which to stress. I have a life worth living. Thank you, my King. Help me be thankful for homework because I have teachers that care and I go to a good school. Thank you, my Lord. I am thankful for friends that repeat the same stories over and over again because that means that I have friends and they are funny. Thank you, my savior. I am thankful for my dog barking when I leave because that means he loves me and is protecting my house. Thank you, Father. I am thankful for my lunch exploding in the microwave because that means I am not starving and I have electricity. Thank you, Christ.

God, I am so thankful for you. I know who and where I would be if I didn’t have you. You are with me all day and night long and care for me even though you have 7.25 billion others to watch over.

I am so thankful that you lead me where you see fit. Thank you for guiding me this week to my new favorite Bible verse. Psalm 94:17-19, ” Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” Thank you God that your words thousands of years ago still apply. 

Thank you God, you are my one and only. Thank you for all you do, seen and unseen. Thank you for all you do and that we have forgotten. Thank you, my Lord and savior.

The Answer to my Prayers

My heart-ached, but unknowing the need

So, silently, His word I read

And soon, I found what was missing

But still, I kept on guessing

Surely that can’t be it

His message I could not transmit

I kept looking, but not truly seeking

I stayed in the same place, never moving

Hoping

Praying

Wishing

That the answers would appear

That they would come clear

Still not understanding what to do next

I tried to forget, but still perplexed

But the ache came again

And all my thoughts ended with amen

In the prayers, I put my heart

but they were not a work of art

No! They were pleading

Simply asking

For a sign

On what path your light would shine

To give new life and to take away the pain

and wash away the stain

Day after day

I pray

Then, I realize

something that I’ve seen before with my eyes

that sometimes the things we love the most

anguishes us the most

I have begun to love this need

and kept letting it bleed

It had cost me so much

But I kept using it as a crutch

I decided to change

My life I rearrange

I give myself back to Him

My love was brought back to the brim

Oh, it was amazing

So exhilarating

The ache was gone

It was a new dawn

I didn’t feel anything amiss

It was bliss

I felt afflatus, wanting to share my joy

So I did, of Christ an envoy

I was glowing with His love – His light

I felt like I could take flight

My life had truly begun anew

Bursting through my walls, I had a breakthrough

I was no longer looking

but seeking

I felt like I needed to have an impact

One big, or maybe small, act

Diligently, I said the words

to move past the songbirds

who already knew their place

but to reach someone out in space

To help someone grow

and them to help me, also

You’re the answer to my prayers

and I never knew that you were out there, some-wheres.
