Over the years, people wrote a lot of couraging and
inspiring poetry or texts. I want to share these with
you as well. If you have any additions, please let me
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scenes, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questiones the Lord about it
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when I needed you the most you would leave me."
The Lord replied,
"My precious, precious child.
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
I Asked God…
I asked God for Strength…
I asked God for Wisdom…
I asked God for Prosperity…
I asked God for Courage…
I asked God for Love…
I asked God for Favors…
I received nothing I wanted…

The Cross In My Pocket
I carry a cross in my pocket
The little cross has no magic
It’s not for identification
When I put my hand in my pocket
It reminds me too, to be thankful
It`s also a daily reminder
So, I carry a cross in my pocket
