Strengthen Me Oh Lord


It started as a tiny thought,
I would not let it go.
Then I started to nurture it,
 and it began to grow.
It followed me with every step,
It wouldn’t go away.
Like wild winds of a tempest storm,
I was battered night and day.
 I threw myself onto my knees
And I began to pray:
Forgive me Lord for the wrong I've done,
I long to start anew;
To live each day with joy and peace,
To live each day for you.

Heavenly Father, thank you form my being able today to decide for You in all my thought, feelings and actions. Now, too, I decide for You as Your Son Jesus Christ decided for You and as His and our Mother decided for You. Strengthen me this day my Lord, that if I am shaken like the branches of a tree in a tempest storm, that I cling to the vine that gives life to the branches, Your Son Jesus Christ.  Amen

“Dear children! Today I call you to open yourselves to prayer. Prayer works miracles in you and through you. Therefore, little children, in the simplicity of heart seek of the Most High to give you the strength to be God’s children and for Satan not to shake you like the wind shakes the branches. Little children, decide for God anew and seek only His will – and then you will find joy and peace in Him. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Message to Marija , BVM, Medjugorje 10/25/2013

That is so true. Sin just hangs on and doesn't let go. Thank you Lord for confession so that I may get rid of sin ad start a new. I just love this blog

Thank You Daily Grace for this wonderful post. The Holy Spirit is speaking through you.

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers ” —Luke 22:31,32
