Oh To Be Wise Meditations

I have everything dear to me close in my arms and I do not want to let go. Lord, please do not let anything slip through my hands. The Lord gives and he takes away, help me say blessed is the name of the Lord. Ok, money comes and goes, it hurts to see it go away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. My health it is good and then it can be bad. Blessed be the name of the Lord. My job, it's security in my life, one day will have to find another one. My friends, people that I care about, they are here one day and gone the next. Give me strength to let them go and live there lives. My mother, my father, a protection and love that cannot be explained. Please Lord, give me strength to let them go and be with you. My child, Lord the one who looks at me and calls me there hero. No Lord, please do not take them away, let me die before them because there love is so innocent. Lord, my wife, the woman you created to be by side, how can I live without the love of my life? I know one day she will be with her true husband who is Christ. Help me Lord to hand her over in marriage to you in heaven. I realized the longer I live the more things start to get loosed from my arms. Very slowly life feels like you have nothing left to hold, only memories to painful to remember. Empty handed and naked as I came out of my mother's womb! Lord, as everything is being was loosed from my arms on earth you are releasing it in heaven. Everything that I have lost you are restoring in heaven. I cannot understand how you will do this but you are aware of my sufferings. My closed fist of anger you are turning into an open hand to receive more than earthly treasure. I am soon to receive more than anything I hold dear in my heart. Like Job even if I receive a double portion of what I lost on earth, it still does not satisfy. Lord, on that day you open your hand and receive me to your Kingdom I will have everything I lost and more. On that day when my Redeemer is revealed everything will make sense and be made clear. I have to spoken too much of what I do not know. But Lord I trust your arms will hold everything I love dear on earth. I can only hold it for so long, I must trust you are holding all things together, even the things I have lost for my good.
