Rejoice always; pray without ceasing;
in everything give thanks; for this is
God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Do not quench the Spirit;
do not despise prophetic utterances.
But examine everything carefully;
hold fast to that which is good;
abstain from every form of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-22
This is Cali and I sure hate to bother you.
For, I know that you are very busy with much to do.
But I have just a bit of a problem that is bothering me.
Your the only one I know to set me free.
Worry is a big problem I must admit,
But I just don't know how to quit.
I worry about big things
over which I have no control.
That as well as small things,
Bothersome but manageable as a whole.
Please give me the insight to handle what is mine.
And realize that it's all up to you in God's time.
But before I give my request.
I must thank you for all the rest
of the many things you have given.
and the infractions you have forgiven.
Right now the biggest problem here
Is a terrible feeling of nagging fear.
I am sure this pesky operation will be a breeze
And, I am sure to be rid of this disease.
This is one big deal that I gladly hand to you.
Please let your surgeons make me almost new.
I love these chats we have now and then
I look forward to your counsel again.
And these precious moments are like a prayer
I am so glad you are there.
As always I will sign off with love
