Me talking to myself...

Oh! You are blessed, are You?

by pharp



Oh! You are blessed, are You?
For sure, I am blessed to see another day.
I woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise
With a sound mind giving God praise.


You are going through issues with your health;
so why are you so blessed?
You must understand, honey, we all will go through
something in our lifetime; afflictions only make us stronger.


If you are so blessed, why do you cry when a loved one dies?
Me, I see you have much to learn.  Crying does not mean you are
weak, or you shouldn't shed tears.  I cry because of the loss
of not seeing or holding my loved one again.   Remember,
even Jesus wept.  Besides, God's word says,
"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."
 

You are in the frame of mind that you have been forgiven for
all of your sins. Girl, I recall when you had a lot of hate
in your heart.  Listen Me; if you recognize that, you should 
also remember I repented and asked for forgiveness. I became
a new person when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior; 
all my sins were washed away.


Look Me; you are invited to join in unity as one;
to work together for good and show love and kindness to all.
Let us do the work of the Lord and help those in need -
as we Break Bread Together on our knees.
