Only a Breath of Praise Away

“our miracle is one more breath of praise away.”
Nita Myers Gagliano, fb 4/21/13
 
I breathed a breath of praise today.
He heard,
for He’s no more
than just a breath away.
 
And in that breath He heard
the trust,
the hope of things unseen
in just a single word…
 
Halleluiah.
 
Halleluiah, though the road is long.
And hard.
And I am
Anything but strong.
 
Halleluiah, though the pain is real.
And unrelenting.
And all that’s left
Is faith that He can heal.
 
And there it is,
In the halleluiah…
The miracle of joy!
And peace.  And grace.
 
The knowing that His way is always best.
And good.
And that His name is Love.
And I am blessed.
 
And never will I ever doubt again
the truth –
that miracles still happen… and mine
is close at hand.
 
 
“Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Philippians 4:6 NIV
