There were/are so may days that the spirits of fear and doubt threatened/threatens to conquer me. There were so many days that anger and frustration stalked me. And on these days I would lean on my faith...my beliefs, for comfort. The spirit of God sustained me and I thank my aunt for for my spiritual meals. I hated it but I was well fed spiritually, everyday...Yes, you heard me right. I hated it then and never realized how much of those teachings sunk in and how important they would become in my fight for survival. Yes, my faith was/is my salvation and this is how I feel. The opening verse is now my motto:-There will always be a reason for me to smile each day.
There will always be a reason for me, to smile each day. God’s light is shining in my life and showing me the way; So I refuse to be unhappy, tell me, why should I be sad?
I know within my heart of hearts
that things could never be that bad.
I know the Lord will never give me more than I can bear.
As long as God is in my heart; there is nothing that I fear.
Life’s little burdens will always be removed:
Health, and wealth, and happiness will be improved.
As long as I believe in God and in the power of His love,
whatever help I want or need will come from up above.
I know I’ll get that miracle that I’ve been praying for.
I know that, if I ask for one, the Lord will give me more.
