LIfe is better with you in it

Dear God
Here I am
At the end of my rope
standing at the cliff's edge
looking down at the jagged bottom
wondering if the jump is worth it
Please God
answer me, are you listening?

Dear Child
I am here
I've always been here
Watching you
Guiding you
When you asked
and were willing to accept my help

God, I am struggling
I am lost
Tell my why
I shouldn't jump

Child, don't you know the answer?
It is deep within you
in your heart

Please God
help me see the answers
that lie in my heart

You just need to quiet things down
and listen

God, my life is in shambles
My work is demanding
My family is distant
It seems no one loves me

Child, I love you!
I always have
Isn't that enough?

Child, your life is busy because you care
your work is demanding because you have skills
your family is not distant
You just need to forgive and welcome them

God, I don't know if I can do it
I lack the strength
I fear the future

Precious Child, I am always with you
I will help
If you just ask
and willing to accept my help

God, will you never leave me
always guide me
always love me

Of course, my Child
I have been there from the beginning
And I am here at the end
I will always guide you
When you ask and willing to accept it
I always Love you
For I made you

Help me God
understand what I have to live for

Wonderful Child,
You have your family that loves you
and depends on your strength
You have friends you inspire
You have those in need that you helped
You have influenced many around you
And you have Me at you side

Dear God
Can you help me understand
that by not jumping
It is because I am not afraid to die

Dear Child
Have you not understood
what we have talked about?
You have the courage to live
Because life is better with you in it!
