grow to know the Lord



I want to grow, Lord.
It's alright with me
if You send some trial my way
so I'll learn to lean on Your strength.
Don't spare me by making it small--
send a big Biblical  blast of
holy refining fire.
Don't let my bickering children,
this tension headache,
the incessantly ringing telephone,
these broken dishes,
this draining tiredness,
the heat and smog
or these boring repetitious tasks
distract me--
so that when a trial comes
I miss it.
It would be such a shame
if I overlooked my chance
to grow closer to you.

Great quotes, Stubby! You should come over to the Christian community and share these. It's called By The Blood of Christ. Hope to see you there! :)
