Prayers, inspirations and comfort promises from God the father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit supplying grace to live out a meaningful life on Earth

Jesus gives comfort promising to weary and people carrying heavy burden to come to him and Jesus will give us rest. Meager existence does not make life meaningful, only through the Holy Bible, seeking of God and Jesus who is the way and the light to the father does a happier life come to be possible.

Trouble and misery will weigh you down

Proverbs Chapter 1 Verses 24-27


24 “I tried to help, but you refused to listen. I offered my hand, but you turned away from me.

25 You ignored my advice and refused to be corrected.

26 So I will laugh at your troubles and make fun of you when what you fear happens.

27 Disasters will strike you like a storm. Problems will pound you like a strong wind. Trouble and misery will weigh you down.

The book of Proverbs is God's wisdom for a blueprint for a happy life

The book of Proverbs


The book of Proverbs is God's wisdom for a blueprint for a happy life. They are an example of wisdom, moral behavior and the meaning of life. These are the proverbs of Solomon, the son of David and king of Israel.

Proverbs 1:17-19


17 You cannot trap birds with a net if they see you spreading it out.


18 But evil people cannot see the trap they set for themselves.

19 This is what happens to those who are greedy. Whatever they get destroys them.

Prayer at sunrise


James Weldon Johnson

 

Prayer at sunrise

 
O mighty, powerful, dark-dispelling sun,

Now thou art risen, and thy day begun.

How shrink the shrouding mists before thy face,

As up thou spring'st to thy diurnal race!

How darkness chases darkness to the west,

As shades of light on light rise radiant from thy crest!

For thee, great source of strength, emblem of might,

In hours of darkest gloom, there is no night.

Thou shiniest on though clouds hide thee from sight,

And through each break thou sendest down thy light.

 

O greater maker of this thy great sun,

Give me the strength this one day's race to run,

Fill me with light, fill me with sun-like strength,

Fill me with joy to rob the day its length.

Light from within, light that will outward shine,

Strength to make strong some weaker heart than mine,

Joy to make glad each soul that feels its touch;

Great father of the sun, I ask this much.

We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties
