A Pause to Say Thanks

Hey Lord,

It took a really good friend to knock some sense into me yesterday. "You really need to stop and thank the Lord." It is true. I need to stop and say thanks. So, here I am, pausing from FB and other social medias, work, clubs and other leadership duties, and all other distractions, to talk to you; the one who I should spend more of my time with.

While catching up on my childhood cartoon on Sunday, you spoke to me. I was shocked at first, because I don't really expect to get anything from moving pictures, but nonetheless I got more than I bargained for.

From the Adventures from the Book of Virtues:

"When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems far.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seen WORST that you mustn't quit."

Lord, I when I needed you the most, you reached your strong arms around me and pulled me close. It was at that moment that I recalled that you were already at my side; sharing my personal space, but I'm glad you are. Continue to share the same air as me, to walk with me, to read what I read, and to watch me as I sleep. I feel safe with you around and lost when I think that you are not near. 

Tomorrow commeth soon, so I'm going to take your hand today.
