"Global Warming and Other
Dear Heavenly Father,
I saw these words in an article today
about global warming, "it's hard to get people worked up about global
warming when it's too cool to get in the pool". As I read I could not
help but thinking how we as a people are affected mostly by what is
going on around only "our little world". I was listening as those in
New Orleans told the news that they were told to evacuate but they
could not because they did not drive, or had no money or a place to go.
This despite the fact that they were being told they could be submerged
in up to 20 feet of water. Dear God help us to be who we need to be,
who You want us to be, to be sensitive to others and weep with them,
and rejoice with them but be aware of all....Help us Lord, help them...
This morning Lord I would like to stop, bow down and thank You for being our God. To
praise You for the mighty things You have done. How You watch over us
each and every day we live. Thank You for every breath we breathe,
every waking moment You allow us to have. Each night as I sleep I am
sure that my heart will go on beating, my lungs will continue to take
in air and that I will awake the next morning to live yet another day!
But even if I don't, even if as the
children's prayer goes..."if I should die before I wake" I know what
awaits me when I open my eyes! Thank You Lord!
In Jesus name,
“Oh God my heart
is ready to praise You! I will sing and rejoice before You”
