Thank you Lord,

for sending me here.

for making it possible

despite of my fears,

of my limitations,

of the challenges,

of our weaknesses.

Help me NOT to forget,

so I may stay grounded,

and connected -

sensitive, discerning,

and focused

on the mission You've sent

me here for.

Whether it's for others,

for me,

for my family,

or to contribute something

for humanity.

Thank you Lord, for loving me.


In this new place,

new battleground - I am not alone,

for You are always with me.


Grant me the grace

so I may fulfill what I ought to do.

Courage, compassion, knowledge, understanding, wisdom, justice,

forgiveness...JOY

- and all else that I need

to touch people's lives,

as You have touched mine.


Surround me with angels,

here on earth,

as You always do.

Those keepers for life -

My protectors, confidants,

and inspirations too.

In these times

of building dreams,

Please continue to remember my loved ones

across the oceans too.


My fortress, my rock,

my refuge for all time

Inside and outside

my comfort zone

Unchanging, as I journey

through my core zone.

Thank you for the daily

miracles.

Thank you for the endless

possibilities.


Here's to another adventure

TOGETHER.

All because of You, through You,

and all for YOU. LET'S ROCK :)
