MY SPECIAL GOD; MY SPECIFIC NEED

MY SPECIAL GOD; MY SPECIFIC NEED

 Dear Lord, I got up this morning and started through my day.

I felt so alone and blue, much to my dismay.

I longed to be full of energy and to accomplish much,

But my heart yearned for love and a soft gentle touch.

I felt guilty for not having direction today.

I then on my Lord my burden did lay.

So, I shopped for groceries, and Carole cut my hair.

I had the car washed and stopped by a mall near there.

I ambled and looked and found an interesting book.

I told the clerk I’d not come for it to look.

He said,”…impulse buying,” but I said I’d used reason.

See, I’d prayed to the Lord to help me in this season.

This book came as an answer to prayer.

This author had experienced the need and had something to share.

Then as I prepared to eat something from Chick-filet,

Along came a friend who just last night did say

That I’d know from the Lord just what to do,

And, dear Lord, I gave it to You.

So, thanks for the day, the accomplishment, fellowship, and book.

I know that you’re there, and my burden You took!
