Message of the Day
Story taken from the book, "The Voices Within Us" by Jim Stewart
One night I was reading a book and feeling a little depressed, when I received a message from my "Messangers." "Tomorrow you will receive a message and it will contain a message for you." I wondered what the message might be and then I went off to sleep.
The next morning, all the way to work, I wondered about this message. Shortly after arriving at work, I went to the chapel to recite my morning prayers. When I opened the door to the prayer room, there it was -- My Message! There was a single sheet of paper with two poems on it. I started to read them. My gosh, here is my message.
Below you find a copy of one of these poems.
Sometimes I feel very blessed to have the gift of communication with my messangers telling me where to go and what to do. Sometimes these messages hurt; but they are always true .
I hope this poem inspires you as much as it did me.
I asked for strength
And God gave me difficulties.
I asked for wisedom
And God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity
And God gave me a brain and brawn to work.
I asked for courage
And God gave me danger to overcome.
I asked for love
And God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors
And God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted
But everything I needed.
