I Must Stand Fast and Strong

      Dear Lord,

    You continue sending such turbulance into
    my solace life such arduous tests of strength.
    I am so tired, I want to put down my sword but
    I must not show defeat. I must stand fast and
    strong. I will not be shaken in my faith. I will
    continue to find the courgage to to disarm the
    enemy that does battle with my heart and my trust.

    Sometimes I have to ask whether it's friend or
    foe that enters my life bearing gifts and a smile
    Though afraid to trust I give my heart only to
    find pain once again

    But my LORD,I will go on with my journey for it is
    not yet over for me on earth. I shall find my peace
    in Your will for my life and if You find that I
    already have the love meant for me, then I will
    accept my fate in my deepest loneliness and go on
    with you at my side with the knowledge and promise
    that my suffering will make me perfect in Your
    Paradise. My reward is yet to be found in a better
    place where no one can touch me, no one can hurt
    me ever again.

    And so I ask God to grant me the serenity to accept
    the things that I can't change,
    The courage to change the things that I can,
    And the wisdom to know the difference. � Marie Schneider
