Needs of the Heart
Every man has a deep “heart need” that cannot be filled with doctrine or creed, for the soul of man knows nothing more than just that he is longing for a haven that is safe and sure and a fortress where he feels secure.
I know that He who brought me into this world will also take me safely back…
for though there are many things I lack, He will not let me go alone into a land that is unknown.
With that knowledge, I can travel happily on “The Highway To Heaven” and always with “hurrying feet”, for I know God will open “new fields of usefulness” for me, where there are no limitations, no handicaps, and no restrictions.
I know that everything that ever happens in my life, whether it is good or bad, glad or sad, God sent it for a reason, and we must truly believe that “God Never Makes Mistakes.”
We must not question what God sends.
Instead, we must realize that when we question God, we lose the unquestionable power of faith and we no longer can enjoy its endless benefits.
I am well aware that I cannot make it on my own, so I ask God to take my hand and hold it tightly, for I cannot walk alone.
Each day God only asks us to do our best, and then He will take over and do all the rest.
Remember, God is always available and ready to help anyone who asks Him, for God is here.
He’s as close to you as He is to me…
and wherever you are, God is sure to be.
While I may never have met you face-to-face, in God’s love by His grace, our hearts and minds can meet and share — though we are oceans and miles apart, God unites us in spirit and heart!
May God’s love and God’s joy flow around this troubled world and may you and I, together, help to make this a reality.
This is my wish and my prayer,
