I'd rather be an EX-SMOKER with an occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with a CONSTANT desire to stop!

I could use some prayer as I need to get out of bed and my own head. I need to focus on gratitude n change my attitude. It`s been rainy n chilly all week but I know that can`t really hold me back from being joyful...only I can. And I`m so glad i don`t have to smoke!

Hi Kathy, I do understand what you are saying. I have been plagued with negative mind chatter all my life.


Blessing in the Chaos

To all that is chaotic in you,
let there come silence.

Let there be a calming of the clamouring,
a stilling of the voices that have laid their claim on you,
that have made their home in you,
that go with you even to the holy places
but will not let you rest,
will not let you hear your life with wholeness
or feel the grace that fashioned you.

Let what distracts you cease.
Let what divides you cease.
Let there come an end to what diminishes and demeans,
and let depart all that keeps you in its cage.

Let there be an opening into the quiet that lies beneath the chaos,
where you find the peace you did not think possible
and see what shimmers within the storm.

What an absolutely beautiful powerful prayer. I am so grateful. I serve my Lord and my church on Wednesdays bible study, and missed the before and after prayers, someone`s testimony n some of the lesson because I was "Martha" - busy serving n cleaning. I heard them praying and hoped some of the blessing n prayer would fall on me. All of your prayer fell on me and no coincidence I received it tonite after the study! God is so good : )
