So Many Gifts

I struggle each month when I am writing my devotions for church. No, scratch that ...when I am writing the devotions for my church family and for our God. We all have strengths and weaknesses, and my strength is not writing. This month however is different, my writing skills have not improved but my attitude has. We all have gifts, we all are blessed, we all face hardships, pain, doubts and concerns. But above all, we are also loved and blessed by some many wonderful things each day. The following prayer is known as St. Theresa’s Prayer. I do not know if she wrote it, that is not what is important- the prayer is.

St. Theresa's Prayer:

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into our bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.It is there for each and everyone of you.   Amen
