There is no shame in saying
I am having a tough time
Guide me with your wisdom
Hold me in your arms
I believe in you
I can make it through
I have faced many struggles in my life
You have helped me every time in the past
I had to learn
It took time
To see past the problems at hand
To refocus on the positive and the good
I think this is a perfect time
To thank you for your infinite power
That makes me explore love
Looking for more understanding
When I have a tough time
It has nothing to do with punishing me
It is only a simple lesson
One of many
That helps me live a fuller and more blessed life
Even if I can not see or comprehend
I know if I keep searching for the answers
The reasons will become clear
In God we pray
All through our life
Not just when we are in a mess
When a problem seems unfixable
How about when my life is looking up
I have the weight lifted off my chest
I look at the people all around me
They turn my tears into smiles
I type a few words
My mind is so powerful
Anything is possible

Changing Tides 2331 Think of strawberries they are delicious when they are ripe. They are the best you have ever had.If you wait a few days longer they get moldy and have to be thrown out. The same strawberries are the worst ever. Did they start out that way? No.We have to see the opportunities we have been given and seize the energy and spirit to fulfill our life. That is why we have so many choices and then so many opportunities to get it right. We have to find out for ourselves. God always is there but lets us find our own way. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a great Friday and an amazing weekend.

Michael-Milec Your comments are so wonderfully written. I kept both the original and the reminder because life gets so busy we do not always see even though our eyes are wide open. Things happen. I take time to slow down and think the most amazing thoughts. It takes me awhile to find my way back to all the people who keep me writing. Thank you so much. Marlene Bertrand We all need a friend like that. One who is our corner 24/7. We all have all the love we could ever want. We go in one direction and think it is the only way. Little do we know many people have been here before us. If we share we can learn, feel and understand sooner. Thank you for your sweet comments. Gypsy Rose Lee It is not uncommon to feel down from time to time. When things get difficult we try to do what we know. We try to physically change our situation when we have to change it mentally first. If we change our way of thinking we can also change our results. Thank you for all your support and help. I wish everyone a happy Friday.

DreamOn great poem. A nice reminder to trust in God through better & worse. Sometimes we think we need answers or need to feel a certain way right now, but we realize in time we were wrong & God was right. We have to wait until He's ready to show us.

Beautiful testimony DREAM ON. Correctly and boldly stated "God is always watching."The Creator of the universe is the omnipresent spirit, and He is there where we are. After awhile when we decide, we can enter into the family relationship and at that time we pray "our Father which are in heaven..." then struggles or burdens of the life we overcome by the power of His might. It s His loving kindness wanting us to stay close and connected… Since early youth He gave me assurance in the words of psalmist “Certainly, goodness and mercy will stay close to me all the days of my life, and I will remain in the LORD's house for days without end.”

Beautiful! I like to go to God for everything. He is like my best friend on the planet. I know he is much more than just a friend; he's my everything. Your poem reminds me of that fact of life.

A wonderful and inspirational reminder that the Lord always watches over us.

Louise Powles I want to let God Know I love my life so much and will hang in there through all my struggles. Especially when everything is going well. God is front and center on my mind. Thank you God is shown by my thoughts, actions and all the wonderful creations we see and can apprecate. Thank you for reading and sharing. God enters peoples life's in many ways. Isn't it something else ? No words can fully describe how happy I can be at any given time. What I can do is find ways to tell the world.
