Prayers from the journey

May 6, 2017

I spit out bitterness (literally)
Lord You cleanse me.
_____________________

God touch her heart, of course I want You to touch her heart. Bring her peace. Help her to purge (to spit out) her bitterness.
________________________________________

My heart sings (praises to You Lord)
even when my lips can’t.
___________________________

Please let me not, to be separated from You Lord.
_____________________________________

Please Lord, I am Yours
though I know that I fall short,
that I have my failings.
Help me Lord, please to exist in this world.
Amen.

I think of all the hopes and dreams (of this life) that are lost, because the time passes.
(that never come to pass)
(Sometimes) I think, ‘Better to not have hopes and dreams’,
just take each day as it comes is maybe better?
but what an unambitious way to live — and what does it produce that way? — without hopes and dreams?

  1. Important prayers and the journaling of them!
    I can’t imagine life without hopes and dreams! I will always have both. I think we need a healthy balance of HUGE hopes and dreams, in-between-size hopes and dreams, and tiny, but important daily hopes and dreams. Sometimes, the tiny ones encourage us to hold onto the HUGE ones. 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
