Sometimes it seems that other’s lives
are much richer than our own.
They seem to have so many friends
and we feel so alone.
There is a friend that’s closer
than any brother could ever be,
He’ll never leave or forsake you
for He came to set you free.
Draw close to Him and like Jabez,
ask Him to bless you indeed,
that you in turn can reach out to others
and be a blessing to those in need.
Remember for your life, He has a purpose,
a unique and special plan,
designed for you and you alone,
by the great I Am.
‘…Oh, that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my territory,
that Your hand would be with me and that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain.’
[1 Chronicles 4:10]
