Blessed are the poor in spirit



When we are down and our spirit is at an all time low, feeling the harshness of life’s realities pressing in on us, do we fit the title of poor in spirit?

I would like to think that what St. Matthew had recorded Jesus as saying in the beginning of the Beatitudes describes a state of being that all of us experience from time to time as we live out our earthly lives dealing with all emotions that come along with the task.

I am here today writing to relieve some of the strain I feel is pressing down hard on my own spirit condition. Prayer always helps, but sometimes it takes a little extra effort, such as writing down thoughts or creating a place in the mind where nothing exist but you and your own thought of God and His perfect, majestic plan for your future as well as present.

As I write this post I am devoting my full attention to giving God praise for somehow keeping me open to receive all blessings He has for my life! I know He has plenty and it is my hope that He would somehow allow me to share them with everyone that I am in contact with here in my physical existence.

I pray that someone out there reading this will be touched by what is said here and spiritual uplifting occurs.

Faith is a wonderful thing when you add patience to it, all things becomes possible it seems.

Oh Lord, help me remember that nothing is going to happen today, that You and I can’t handle together!


Isaiah 26:4

Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Je-ho’vah is everlasting strength…
