Prayers

Thank You, Lord, For Your Company (And Other Things We Take For Granted)

———————————

Thank you, Lord, for I can move my fingers making me able to use the keyboard.
When at that time when I just got out of the operating room, I can not move my entire body, not even my toes.
Thank you, Lord, for I can stand on my back and making me able to take a bath myself.
When at that time during the recovery, due to a foot-length wound at my back, it was the hospital aid who had to turn my body and bathed me.
Thank You, Lord, for the gift of night shift work, for I am awake and can do things freely while the rest of the world is sleeping at my zone.
Thank You, Lord, for I will come back to home tired after a day filled of completed tasks, sometimes overwhelmingly difficult tasks to be completed in a day.
When at that time, I was waiting for call-back calls from employers that I applied to.
Thank You, Lord, for reminders from my mother who constantly bugged me with calls and messages to come home early and eat my meals on time. When others long for presence of parents in their daily lives.
Thank You, Lord, for this single life, for I have freedom to do things relying on my self – made decisions. When others missed to see the gifts of freedom and envy with misery those romantic couples.
Thank You, Lord, for Your presence in every single moment of my life.
I look back today and You, Oh Lord has never ever abandoned me. You walked me through the valley of near death, the uphill of great achievement, the downhill of rejections and failures, the curves of sinful life leading me to the narrow road of righteous life.
Thank You, Lord, for your company.
May I always recognize Your big hand holding my lithe fragile hand.
Amen.
