Sometimes we can’t 

Sometimes we want to give and we can’t

Sometimes we want to feel and we can’t

Sometimes we want to act and we can’t

Sometimes we want to transcend and we can’t

 

Sometimes we want to win and we can’t

Sometimes we want to stop and we can’t

Sometimes we want to create and we can’t

Sometimes we want to save and we can’t

 

Sometimes we want to pray and we can’t

Sometimes we want to hope and we can’t

Sometimes we want to face and we can’t

Sometimes we want to fade and we can’t

 

Sometimes we want to talk and we can’t

Sometimes we want to listen and we can’t

Sometimes we want to see and we can’t

Sometimes we want to feel and we can’t

 

Sometimes even to be is impossible

Sometimes everything is doubted

Sometimes life is shattered

 

There is always tomorrow with a Heavenly Heart

 

Joshua Dragon

A prayer for God

Dear Father,

You, who has never left me,

never, not even for a second,

who trusted me,

when I was down,

who embraced me,

when I felt alone,

who nurtured me,

when I was starving,

all those years,

You cradled me,

if needed,

You cried for me,

when I was in pain,

You laughed with me,

when I enjoyed the life,

You have Blessed me,

more than once,

You stood beside me,

always,

this prayer is for You.

 

Thank you,

for not giving up on me,

thank you,

for teaching me,

thank you,

for guiding me,

thank you,

for loving me!

 

I have learned,

how cruel the world was with You,

I have learned,

how ignorantly your children abandoned You,

I have learned,

how much You have been working for Your Dream,

I have learned,

how anguishing the path has been.

 

Please, try not be sad any longer,

please, try to see the efforts by us,

please, try to feel our changing heart,

please, try to trust again, in us.

 

We make mistakes,

I have made plenty,

A lot I am still unaware of,

I will do better,

promise to You,

we will do better,

I promise to You.

 

Look at me, look at us,

here we are at last,

Your True Child showed,

the pattern we follow,

and as He hasn’t given up,

we won’t hesitate,

turning our stubbornness,

into perseverance.

 

I pray for You,

as I’m praying now,

please, believe and have faith in us,

just a little bit longer.

As You haven’t given up on us,

we will never retreat,

in loving absolutely,

pursuing the Ideal.

 

And I can tell You this,

even if I’m the last one,

I won’t stop loving You,

with my heart and deeds.

 

Please, Father,

hear this prayer,

please!

 

We will live together, one day!

Do you know where Heaven is?

Today, a begging elder brother

was falling in the street

his knees kept him away

hitting the ground

 

Today, a begging elder brother

was sobbing in the street

his tears cleaned

his tormented face

 

Today, a begging elder brother

was chanting in the street

a prayer for all of us

to be saved

 

Today, a begging elder brother

was struggling in the street

trying to forget the aching hunger

trying to forget his own needs

 

Today, a begging elder brother

was asking in the street

where is my heart

do I know where Heaven is

Love Power

Love power is the power which can make the dead person want to live and the living person want to die. In other words, if you love your husband and he says something detrimental to you, you may want to die because of that one particular word. On the other hand, if a husband says loving words to his dying wife, then those words can make his wife want to live. This is the power of love. Do you understand? Love power can do anything.

I pray for You, Father!

I pray for You, Father!

Not because I’m entitled to do so

and not because I’m arrogant,

I know it well, how graceful You are

still accepting me.

I am praying for You,

because I don’t know how long

you can bear the pain I’m constantly giving You

with my careless, obnoxious selfishness,

unprincipled desires,

thoughtless words

and deeds.

I would be crashed in an instant

being You even for a moment.

I do not want to give You pain anymore,

I would like You to feel free

and joyous

whenever You think of me.

Looking at my life, the way I see it,

I hardly can tell, how You can still trust me,

never giving up on me.

Yet, I believe in You, I trust You with my most valuables,

my children and wife, leading them back to You –

I can not be doubt in me, since You have never stepped back from me…

Father, You are great and eternal, gracious and everloving, seeing the absolute good in me.

I long for the day to be like You!

 

 

(from the book: Pray with me)

Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot see the light of your love
Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot feel the love of your life
Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot climb a mountain because it’s high
Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot grow in your heart
Don’t say

 

Don’t say you have lost all your power
Don’t say

Don’t say you have always been cornered
Don’t say

Don’t say you have nobody else
Don’t say

Don’t say you have only anguish
Don’t say

 

Don’t say you are still hesitating
Don’t say

Don’t say you are just waiting
Don’t say

Don’t say you are not worthy
Don’t say

Don’t say you are not ready
Don’t say

 

You are meant to be the child of God.

Father! I have been on a mission…

Father!
I have been on a mission
Long forgotten time
Feels today
It feels I have failed
And You are
You are still with me
Backing me up
Helping to get back to my feet
What a tremendous heart is
To trust in a changing
Immature one.

 

You have liberated me
So many nights
Life was short
And there You stood
Feels like yesterday
You have never let me down
Despite my deeds and words
Stubborn willingness to fail
To see the Truth,
The Real You.

 

Father!
My message is mute
I can not talk
I feel unworthy
Grace-given son of Yours

 

I wish to be a day
A wish for all of us.

 

-Joshua Dragon-

God Provides

So often we feel

betrayed

cheated and abandoned

lonely as the Moon

who travels alone

and we have anger

blaming, discourage

feeling the darkside

of every bit of the sunshine.

 

Yet, God provides

light, air and water

ground to stand on

wind to change

rain to cleanse

people to guide

hardships to measure your growth

joy to feel contentment

dreams to have something to hope

God provides, God provides.

Quote

“When you sacrificially give of your love to those who are hostile to you, you begin to reflect the real quality of God’s own love. True love moves in this way. Its quality does not change regardless of the response of the people.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
