“What Made You Decide To Change?”
One day, I just decided that no one person or no one situation
would ever have so much power over me.
I decided that those friends who continually tell you I will pray for you
but never offer you a coin when broke or a piece of bread when hungry
have no true and vested interest on us.
That if it had to be it was up to me, therefore I promised my self never to
ask another “Don’t let go of me.”
That I am worth it not because of me but because of the one who created me.
I realized that I wanted and deserved a better, longer, healthier and happy life.
That a failed relationship did not preclude me from finding love again.
That having been overweight did not mean that I was to stay that way.
That loosing my position, and wealth only meant that I had something else coming.
That there would be someone who would take and accept me as I was, and to whom
my struggles and challenges would not be a deal breaker as they made their presence felt and,
carried some of the load and at times all of the load so that I did not have to face the world alone.
Because I had those that did pray but, they did not pray for me…They prayed with me.,
a lot has changed and my life now reflects it.
NO. Prayer in any form is not bad or unwelcome, but I remember what my parents taught
all of us as kids: after we pray on our knees we get up and go and pray with our hands, feet
and backs so we can do our part in making ours and other people’s miracles a reality.
I am thankful., oh so thankful for the many kindness I have received during the last couple of years.
I know that I have a purpose and if I have a day or a hundred years
I will work every day and in some way re-pay all that was given to me.
I want more. I want better.
I want health, wealth and a family
And that is why my prayer is never for things to be given to me,
or for life to be easy, and not even for many friends.
All I ask from GOD is for my loved ones to be healthy and safe,
and for me, Peace of mind.
With that I can and will take care of the rest.
