Thy will – Not Mine

There are still mountains to climb – trails to forge –
goals to be accomplished.

So much to do before the earth consumes my flesh
and I return to it.

Where was this fire, this desire and zeal to serve the Lord
in my youth?

Why did I wait so long to realize the urgency of Jesus’
Great Commission?

Who do I think I am to undertake this overwhelming task?

I have no words – no works – nothing to offer in gratitude.
All that I possess and am is because of what He’s done for me.

Lord, you’re the only one who knows how I can be used for your benefit.
I commit myself to your loving hands and am confident that you will provide
What is needed to accomplish your will. I know it will be done with or
without my interference. Amen,

If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
