The Challenge of Blessings


You come here when your world is falling apart before your eyes.

You turn to Me for help and then, to your surprise,

You find that all those things you learned along the way

Are true for you today.

But the greater challenge, Child, is will you come to Me

With just as great a willingness and just as felt a need

When the days are not all wrapped in care and urgency?

When it seems your life is going along perfectly?

Sometimes the best gift I can give is the problem that comes your way

And the greater challenge is the clear sunshiny day.

You need Me, Child, do you know it?

For day in and out itís true,

I bless you with the problems and with blessings I challenge you.
