Lord You Never Let Me See Hunger Or Homelessness!


Lord it could have been me, but you never let me see hunger or homelessness. There are so many who had not yet you allowed me to open my doors to let them come in a stay until they could get back on their feet. Lord you always provided us with something good to eat.

You’ve always kept a roof over my children’s and my head’s! A nice warm place filled with abundant love! Lord I lift you up and magnify your name with all the love I have for you…

Lord you saw to it that I always had a cool place when it was hot! A place where I could have a comfortable warm bed when it was cold out, and to be well fed.

Lord you’ve been so good to me, and I am so blessed to be able to see just how good you are to me. I am so wonderfully blessed as blessed as I can be, because you never allowed homelessness, hunger, and deadly illness to fall on me.

Lord it could have been me, out in the cold with no food, a lost soul, but you never allowed it to happen to me… Lord I thank you! Lord I thank you! Lord I thank you!

My life is fine because of your intervention in my life is divine.

Lord God Heavenly Father you are so good to me and mine, we are grateful each day for living so that we can bless your Holy name faithfully!

Lord I am as thankful as thankful as I can be, simply because you never allowed any of these unfortunate things to happen to me….

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I am thinking about all the people around the world who are hungry and homeless. The millions of people in Africa's desert, the people of the South Pacific, and especially the people here in the Riches Country who are struggling to survive daily. Lord! Where do we stand as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer?

I truly love this piece,the honesty,the observation,the emotion and the gratitude of what we have that so many take for granted on a day to day basis. You are so right in every line of this. Hopefully many will read and feel the same gratitude for what they have in their lives
