Jesus, can you fix my broken day?

My morning seems broken

Did not want to get out of bed

Food has no flavor

I swallow multivitamins

instead of eating

I stare out the window

it is peaceful out there

but very cold

I will stay in

turn the phone off

It is a day to be alone

with my thoughts

to direct me

do nothing

or something

Maybe today is

for talking with Jesus

I do not need to turn my phone on

Hello Jesus

how are you today?





I Am Not Perfect

If I don’t ask you for help

I may never begin

nor finish a project

I wonder what others will think

if it “just isn’t perfect”

I read you can never be perfect

nothing is ever perfect

What I write will not be perfect

My prayers to you

won’t be perfect

Jesus, help me be okay

with not being perfect

Perfection is for you only

My words are my gift to you

Help me accept

my imperfect perfection


	

Jesus, help me off this merry go round

I feel I am at an amusement park

ready to be thrown off a merry-go-round

I am trying to keep up with life

with the obligations

I have accepted

Help me set down

the things others have asked of me

I cannot stand much longer

under the weight of the demands

Help me set down the projects

         that burden me

and walk away

I need time alone

I need time with you

Help me say no

when I need to say no

Jesus, will you help me as I give flowers to people in the parking lot?

Jesus, you see the lonely people in this parking lot

going home without love?

Today, I bought two dozen roses to give away.

I’m depending on you to lead me to

those who need a spark of love.

I need you to point out twenty-four

people needing love.

I have a red rose for each of them.

Thanks, Jesus.

Jesus, I’m Scared When I Wake Up

I do not know why I feel dread when I awaken

like something wrong is going to happen

Maybe I feel like I am not right with you, Jesus

Did I ask for forgiveness for the wrongs of yesterday

Christianity is messy for me at times

I have habits I am trying to break

I hold resentments toward others

I try to forgive them

but their faces flash before me

Help me feel normal when I awaken

without waking up to fear

Let me feel I am clean and right with you

Jesus, I don’t want to be

what you don’t want me to be

Help me, please

Thank You For Being My Friend

You walked with me

even to places I should never have been

You watched

as I did things that were just wrong

You allowed me to trip and fall

so I would look for a different path

Angels protected me

The angels talked & walked & laughed

All that time

I thought they were human

I know you sent them

I am reaching for your hand once again

I am older now

I do not see as well

My path is changing again

Jesus

Please keep walking & talking & protecting me

Lord, thank you

Hello Jesus,

I know you are watching over every step I make

When I go the wrong direction you help me turnaround

I have felt isolated this year

The Coronavirus caused great fears for everyone

Thank you for protecting me

I wore a mask to prevent getting or giving the virus to others

It has not been easy to wear it

It is difficult to breathe while wearing a mask

I know this is short-term

Stores and malls will open again soon

There will be no masks needed everyday

I miss the personal touch of friends

who are stay home to avoid contracting the virus

Thank you for keeping me safe since

I have medical conditions that makes me vulnerable to the virus

People reading this a year or two

will not realize the concern we all had

Jesus, you are my savior and protector and my friend

Lead Me Not Into Temptation

Should I speak for only myself

  or for others?

Temptation began

  in my teenage years
  continued through college days
  and then just continued

Addictions developed

Wrong choices made

  Does this sound familiar?

I pray each night

Jesus, lead me not into temptation

Forgive me for my wrong doings

Thank you Jesus

  for your forgiveness

He Brought Me Flowers

She never got over the loss
          of her husband
There will be no one like him
Looking into her eyes
Bringing roses to her
          every Friday
She will not look
          for anyone else
          to make her happy
She believes there is
           no one for her
I understand
Few men bring flowers
          or presents
          to the person they love
Years are passing
I often see her
walking to her mailbox
Letters her only companion
She believes in Jesus
prays to accept her loneliness
Jesus
Please brings someone wonderful
          into her life
          who will fill it with love and roses

	

Dear Jesus — Do You Remember Saving Melissa and Me from Two Car Wrecks?

Hi Jesus,

we have gone a long way together

I remember your protecting me

from two car wrecks

where cars pulled in front of me

as I drove to work

I thought I would hit these cars

broadsided

Both times they were at a stop sign

then both times the cars

crossed directly in front of me

Was it Angels that suspended my car

during those times

I saw my entire life

flash across my mind

as I was prepared to crash

but the cars crossing in front of mine

on two different days

passed without crashing

Now, many years later

I think it was Angels,

God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit

who saved my life

However, I haven’t told the rest

of the story

There was another person in the car

a lovely lady named Melissa

who was going to work with me

we were carpooling from Louisville

to Hardinsburg, Kentucky

Hello Melissa, if you are reading this

I think you may remember this

and I think you could have been

as fearful as I was

I believe it was Angels

sent on assignment by God

that saved us

Thanks Jesus for

saving our lives

PS: Melissa, if you read this

let me know how are doing
