Last nite I was down in the basement chillin’, listening to some tunes, when Zayra (my 8 year old daughter) came down to see me–an hour after she was suppose to be sleeping. She said her throat hurt, so we cuddled for a while as we listened to the end of the album.
I asked her, “What should I write about tomorrow?”
And she responded immediately, as if she had been holding back a sermon, just waiting to share it. So I thought I would pass it along to all of you. Maybe it’s just what one or two of you need to hear today.
Here it is:
Life has difficulties. Difficulties are hard. They make life more challenging than it seems.
But you’re never alone because everyone is with you. God and Jesus are with you. They love you.
There are challenges in life, so you need to step up and work on them. You need to agree and do things you don’t want to do.
You’re enemies have a soft spot down in there, and they love you, but they just don’t show it or know it.
Poor people have pain and suffering. So please help them.
You shouldn’t try to be perfect because, to God, you don’t have to be. God loves you even when you’re not perfect.
OK, that’s all I have to say.
