God's Purpose For Me Each Day

Posted March 17th, 2011 at 9:26AM

“Dear God, show me your purpose for today”

I prayed when I awoke

There was a smile upon my face as these simple words I spoke

For I felt sure the Lord would use me in some great and mighty way

As I hurried from the subway and headed for the street

A homeless man approached me and begged me for a dime

But I was really too busy and couldn’t spare the time

 And as I brushed his hand away my eyes went to his feet

His shoes were old and tattered, his clothes worn and dingy

His nails were long and dirty his teeth were rotten too

If he was cold and hungry I didn’t have a clue

 Instead I turned my head in disgust and acted very stingy

I hurried far away from him for he had a pungent smell

Thank God he didn’t touch me or soil my brand new clothes

For I was dressed in suit and tie all purchased from the store

Maybe he was once a lawyer or a carpenter I really couldn’t tell

 A young man asked me for direction but I hurried him away

Then I saw a woman sobbing as she talked on the telephone

She appeared to be very sad and very much alone

I didn’t stop and talk with her because I didn’t know what to say 

During my lunch break I read from the Holy Book

And as I looked up I saw an old man standing in the rain

His face wrinkled in pain as he held on to his cane

I quickly turned my head away because I didn’t want to look


Soon it was time to head home on the train

And as I got off at my stop I thought about my day 

Wondering, why didn’t the Lord use me in any way?

Then, the Lord spoke to me in a voice filled with pain

 “My child, several times today I showed you what you ought to do”

Then the Lord reminded me of how I turned my back on the homeless man

“You failed to see that helping him was an important part of my plan

And that young man, he nearly missed his job interview all because of you

You didn’t give him directions and he almost got to the place too late

So I had to send an angel to direct him along the way

It really made me very sad that you didn’t pay attention to what I had to say

 He surely would have missed the opportunity to put food on his children’s plate 

And what about that old man standing in the rain

Or the woman you saw sobbing on the phone

In her time of tragedy she was really quite alone

And didn’t you notice the old man who was in pain?”

He pointed out things I was so ashamed to recall or even think about

Like saying “Good Morning” to the bus driver as I stop to pay my fare

Because it’s always nice to show someone that you really care

Or it could be just celebrating victory with Halleluiah shout

You can with just a smile brighten someone day 

It can be as small as giving your seat to an old man

Which means you’ll have to stand

Or a sick person on whose head your hands may lay

I asked the Lord to forgive me for I truly didn’t know

I thought that God’s purpose will be doing something great

Such as praying for the sick which demonstrates our faith

But sometimes God’s only purpose for that day is the kindness that we show

 It’s about the strangers that we meet

As we travel along life’s way

Maybe a hug we give to someone when there’s nothing much to say

 Or a word of comfort and a helping hand to people on the street

“You see my child”, He continued, your actions speak for me

 It reflects my love, my kindness and sympathy”

I hung my head in sorrow,  regret, and deep shame

But his voice were filled with kindness as I humbly accepted blame

“Don’t be discouraged, said the Lord, for tomorrow is another day

Just keep the light that I have given you always burning bright

So that your attitude and actions will show how much I care

My purpose my child, is for you to always give a helping hand

Whenever you possibly can

It can be as simple as an encouraging word that dispels someone fears

Or a gentle hand that wipe away their tears.

Therefore when on the street a stranger you might see

Just resolve in your heart that person is really me”

    When God becomes our whole life with no other, it's because of his calling just as written in John 15:18-21. And when we become as one with God Almighty, it's because we are no longer of this world; therefore have no association with the doctrines and traditions of man that make the word of God to be of no effect.

    Over 4 years ago, God took me from America and placed me in the Philippines with no income, no savings, and little pocket money that was gone by January 2007. Yet God has seen me through to this day, and it has been and still is a very rough road. Rather that speak of the many hardships. I will just tell you why God placed me here with nothing.

    First to make my faith so strong that I no longer had any trust in man, but only Him as God. Second was to show me just how this entire world through the religions of man, in truth, knows not God.

    Please read 1 John 3:14-18 as they describe me as being on the receiving end ever since January over four years ago. Just killed daily with no care from a world of brethren. Now read 1 John 4:7-8, and remember God's words are pure and written with no confusion. Psalms 12:6, 1 Corinthians 14:33.

    Now read Proverbs 21:13 with notice on how all those who cannot hear will not be heard themselves.

    Next take very important notice of the words of God in Proverbs 1:22-32, and also the words in Lamentations 3:8, 44---when God will not hear their cry when in great anguish.

    What this world of pastors, ministers, priests and all titles for God fail to teach is that Christ made a new commandment in John 13:34 on how we are to love each other. And the words of our Lord in Revelation 22:14 say blessed are all those who do His commandments for their right to the tree of life. . .so if they show no love, there will be no blessings for the tree of life.

    I am almost 56, and as of now there are perhaps at least 120,000 views of my writings, and in them I have asked for little as Kraft dinners, a box of like just useless junk they could part with, or just any help at all no matter how small, and all to be scorned, judged, not liked, murdered, and called many ungodly words such as an author for the devil with some words I cannot repeat.

    Here in this link-- --are just some of my works for God as my heartbeat with His words as my blood-flow, and we live within a deceived world of religious hypocrites as written in Job chapter 8.

    Our Lord God knows all things. Hebrews 4:12-13---And He weighs us by our actions. 1 Samuel 2:3 God placed me because He knew that through faith I would endure, and He also knows that once I had much money, but just helped to many including church building funds, families in hardships, Feed the Children, and just to many causes to list.

    May our Lord God be with you always in heart and mind.
