Your Will Be Done

The rich man prays for greater wealth
The beggar, bread to eat.
The ailing pray for new found health
And I Your will to meet.
The din must be so horrendous
And hard to sort it out.
Their needs may be tremendous, but
That's not what prayer's about.

All men must learn that You are not
A magic wishing tree
That grants fond wishes on the spot
For all humanity.
My Lord, I know you have a plan
For all, including me.
It is Your will not that of man,
I pray for willingly.

I'm well aware You know my needs
Far better than do I.
You, my loved Lord, are one who heeds
The least of all who cry.
You know the reason some may grieve
And some are unwell still;
And how it all fits in the weave
Of wise eternal will.

I offer then, myself to You
To do with as You may;
Knowing the whys of what You do
I'll understand some day.

I watched Touched By An Angel last night and it was about Monica praying to get a voice of an angel.  Of course, Tess told her God gives you always what you need, not necessary what you want.  Joyce, this message is the best one there is about how he deals with us all.  He knows, that I am certain, and he provides where needed.  Nice to read this in the middle of my day.

Thank you dear Mysteria.  I wrote this to remind myself that God is still hearing and answering whether it is what I exactly expected or not.  Love, Joyce

(smiles) Awwwwwwww, He certainly will giveth unto you what He believes He should giveth and satisfy the needs of us all, as we are all touched by angels truly! (kiss on cheek) God Bless You, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Joyce, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Your poem transmitted a feeling so strong, a feeling of Faith.

It expresses the love and trust in God.

It's such a wonderful write, I so much enjoyed it. Thanks!

DearestJoyce~
This piece touches me sooooo tenderly with truths of my own knowing~

He waits for me ... to be ever ready to accept His Will ... I pray for His guidance to do just that~

One of your finest pieces lady~
Hoping you find a place to submit it for publication~

Very beautiful dear Joyce. I think God loves our prayers, in whatever form we pray, our sighs even, for when we ask for His help we connect with Him and in this connection Love and Trust are expressed. And to know that His will is our highest good is so deeply comforting.
Love, Margherita
