Faith and Blessings

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord" _ Jeremiah 29:11 _________________________
Always, I speak my blessings each new day, and bow my head in prayer and my reward is calmness, serenity and tranquility do this and you will see . . . Even when I feel despair I put my faith in the Lord, for faith is the cement and blessing in my foundation. God always sees what is in my soul, and he helps me on this journey called life in his arms I feel so blessed and safe just the other day I was afraid and he held my hand, so I keep my faith always and forever close, and my heart breathes love, for all humankind . . . oh, my faith is too powerful to ignore, no words said can break this bond. oh, I am blessed with a friend in the Lord, a protector and a guide quite a remarkable thing I think, he is my rock and anchor, my salvation in this journey taking me in his arms when I cannot walk until I feel stronger- since I was very young I have known sorrow but I know when it hurts God cries with me. Xanadu will be my great reward, oh you will never know until you reach out that you can soar on zephyr breezes through this thing we call life. _________________________ July 22, 2020 Poetry/Abecedarian/Faith and Blessings Copyright Protected, ID 20-1270-759-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the contest, Share Your Blessings sponsor, Beata Agustin Third Place

Such tender beauty in your words of consolation Constance - "you can soar," "taking me in His arms," "he held my hand." They are words of comforting faith! Good luck in the contest!
