Spirit Stories: In Your Own Words

Good morning dear God

By: Karen Duce-Kinziger

A beautiful thought shared through a poem

Good morning dear God

What will happen today?

Let me feel your presence when it does

Help me to react the way you want me to

To learn from the experience

Help me to make someone happy today

To change someone's direction in life for their better

Help me to feel exquisite joy at least once today

So that my heart feels like it will leap out of my chest

At least once today give me empathy so that I feel other's pain

Tell me what to say and do

Give me the ability to let my family and friends know that I love them

In the midst of the noise I will enter into soon

Know that I appreciate the song of the birds, a smile from a stranger,

the warmth of the sun, the music that surrounds me

Thank you for the healthy food I will eat

Remind me to take care of the earth,

to take care of myself, to move and to sweat

I know I am here to learn, some of your lessons are hard

Help me to change my life after living your lessons

so I don't have to repeat them again until I get it right

Help me to believe that since you are in me, we are all one

And that through my eyes, my voice, my actions you experience my life

You are not only with me when I ask you to be

I can neither call you in, nor send you away

you are in the very blood that pulses through my veins

In the noise of the day, please let me hear your voice

Sometimes you may need to speak loudly

as I can be selfish and think that what I am doing is of utmost importance

I want to go through every room in my home, every room in my heart

and sweep out what is not necessary, and fill them with the light of you

Help me to realize that everything and everyone that I love

will slip through my earthly fingers to return to you

And in spirit by returning to you, they return to me

Give me strength to know that that is the way you intend it to be

Help me to know when to speak and when to remain silent and listen

Help me to nurture the talents you gave me

And please show me the gifts I have been too blind to yet see

Teach me to live in the moment at hand

To not dwell on the past, to not fret of the future

Help me to prove to you that every breath that I breathe in

Is appreciated, and is actually a prayer of thanks to you

And when I go back to sleep tonight, help me to feel tired, exhausted and

satisfied that I used this day to the best of my ability

And when I dream, feel free to talk to me and teach me what you want me to know

So that I will enter into tomorrow a better person

Because I made this coming day the gift you intended for me.

And, please give me yet another tomorrow

that I may ask this all of you again
