Just for Today


Thy strength, oh Lord, just for this day
I pray You will impart.
For me again renew my faith
As this new day I start.

Reach out to me and keep Thy hand
On everything I do.
Direct my path to things undone
And guide to paths anew.

Give me the patience that I need
to do for others now
the things that You would have me do
And kindly show me how.

Through doubts and fears, and heavy loads
I struggle on my way,
Yet through the rugged path I know
That you are near today.

You steer my feet and lift my heart
And make the light to shine.
Then all my trouble, aches and pains
I gladly leave behind.

  3. Beautiful words poem and fantastic macro shot @Ana, superb!

    • Thank you. And by the way, I did take your advise on macro, I didn’t get as many opportunities as I thought I would, I guess it’s not that time of year yet for an abundance of flowers, we’re just getting out of the dry season. I did get some lovely shots though. Thanks, I’ll keep working at it.

  4. “Direct my path to things undone
    And guide to paths anew.” Beautiful!!!
