Through The Day With God

by BethShelby

Spiritual Contest Winner 
When I wake up in the morning,
I need guidance for the day,
Sometimes problems I am facing,
make me know, I need to pray.
By the evening, I am seeking
just a moment to relax.
My poor brain has been invaded
with a host of useless facts.

There's a stillness just at twilight
as the sun is sinking low,
and the clouds on the horizon
now reflect a crimson glow.
As I feel a strong perception
of God's universal love,
I can't help but give the glory
to the Father up above.

In the stillness of the evening
just before the stars emerge,
there's a spirit of contentment
as the land and sky converge,
and I like to pause a moment
to inhale the evening air.
Inspired by the sounds of silence
I will bow my head in prayer.

As the velvet darkness settles
and the silver moon appears,
then a million stars still sparkle
as they have ten thousand years.
I'm aware that God’s still watching
o'er his children from above.
As I slumber, He’ll protect me,
safely sheltered in His love.
