Life without God

Lord life does not work without you.
You are there in our joys and strife.
You are the creator of our every being
The author and the finisher of our life.

Waking us each and every morning
Providing us with all that we need.
You guide us through all of our days
You supply the air that we breathe.

Sometimes we think we can make it
In this world with our own strength.
Than our trials and burdens get harder
And soon we realize, that we just can’t.

Lord, life does not work without you
For all of our days are in your hands
Help us to always trust in your ways
Even when we cannot understand.

Thank you for this perfect poem this morning. I just hung up with a friend who's world is crashing around her because she's trying to live it w/o God. Please pray for my friend, "A." Your poem said exactly what I was trying to share with her.

Hi Daniele, Thanks for taking the time to stop by to visit, and for your kind words of encouragement.

Hi My sisters... Thanks for dropping by, I wrote this awhile back but left it unfinished for a time, waiting for the moment the Lord would allow me to finish it, and he did, and I'm blessed to know it touched each of you in a special way. To God be the Glory. Hugz Lorie
