Leanning on the Lord

Anthony Logan 1952 (brooklyn)

Lord you have brought me into another trying day With your work on my mind I know you will allow me time to play The stress and strain which weighs heavily on my mind Give me reason to think of all mankind What is it my God that can be done So that this world may live in peace harmony and fun The joys of the world is ours to share ,so lets walk in peace love and harmony everywhere Give not to mind a selfish thought think not only of yourself and remember what God has taught He teaches us to be kind and caring always giving always sharing His love is always the same never no envy hurt or pain So pass it on as you live in world think not as much of diamonds and pearls , live in His will and all the riches shall be yours And days end you shall see that the smallest or biggest thing He shall have given to thee

Anthony Logan

My name is Anthony Logan and I was born on June 21st 1952 in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn. Ever since I was a child, I always enjoyed writing because it was another way to express myself. I have been through many trials and tribulations in my life and I can say with confidence, that I am strong believer in God because he was the only one to see me through all of it. When I write, I am inspired by his love and grace and this gives me the motivation to continue to write about his goodness and all that he has done for me. Through my writings I hope to lead someone to know how awesome he is. I hope to inspire a young writer someday. more…
