"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty;

not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some."

Daily Prayers Dissolve Your Cares

I meet God in the morning
And go with Him through the day,
Then in the stillness of the night
Before sleep comes I pray
That God will just "take over"
All the problems I couldn't solve
And in the peacefulness of sleep
My cares will all dissolve,
So when I open up my eyes
To greet another day
I'll find myself renewed in strength
And there'll open up a way
To meet what seemed impossible
For me to solve alone
And once again I'll be assured
I am never "on my own"...
For if we try to stand alone
We are weak and we will fail,
For God is always GREATEST
When we're helpless, lost and small,
And no day is unmeetable
If on rising our first thought
Is to thank God for the blessings
That His loving care has brought...
For there can be no failures
Or hopeless, unsaved sinners
If we enlist the help of God
Who makes all losers winners...
So meet Him in the morning
And go with Him through the day
And thank Him for His guidance
Each evening when we pray,
And if you follow faithfully
This daily way to pray
You will never in your lifetime
Face another "hopeless day."

Wise words indeed from Helen Steiner Rice. Why do we find it so hard to trust our Abba Father? How many miracles does he need to perform in our lives everyday before we can see Him for the God He truly is? Why can't we see?
