Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 22: A Dialogue With God

Meet me here
where heart beats with hope
and life looks bright

I'll meet you here
where hope prevails
even in darkness of night

Meet me here
where I pat my own back
for all I've accomplished

I'll meet you here
where My arms surround
though your day was fruitless

Meet me here
in the midst of my plans
for good times and laughter

I'll meet you here
where plans dissolve into tears
and My peace flows after

Meet me here
where loved ones surround
and make life feel secure

I'll meet you here
where heart aches lonely
but My presence is sure

Meet me here
where I'm strong in mind,
spirit, and speech

I'll meet you here
where weakness mutes words
and My strength is increased

Meet me here
where joy is abundant
and life is worth living

I'll meet you here
where despair overwhelms
and you meet Me in thanksgiving

Meet me here
wherever life takes me
for You I'll be waiting

I'll meet you there

"Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" ~Job 2:10

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'." ~Jeremiah 29:11

"Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,' even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You." ~Psalm 139: 7-12
