God Blesses My Soul

God Blesses My Soul

God blesses my soul every day in very many little ways.
And He answers my prayers: yes, no, or wait a few more days.

If there ever is: discord, contention or dissension.
I am held in special arms, well loved, safe; did I mention?

My soul soars when I see the Father working in my life.
He gives me special comforts to relieve me of my strife.

If I need some extra cash, poof!  Like magic, God will send:
Unexpected rebates or birthday money from old friends—

Every time I am happy, the whole world becomes my toy.
God blesses me with critters and the plants that bring me joy.

But greater than those blessings that He gives to me while near.
Is the blessing of eternity with my Savior, dear.

    I think you will do well in the contest with this one, Dane Ann. You have so much faith! What you said about money in stanza 4 is so true. I am always hearing stories of people in my church who struggle to pay their 10 percent tithing, but by doing it, they are blessed. Luv, Andrea

    A loving poem that speaks of many blessings given freely. The presence of God in a life is in itself a blessing. This was comforting to read. well Margaret
