Psalm 23:3

He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake. [NASV]

True to your word,  you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction [TM]

[PAUSES, PURPOSES, PROMISE]  heavenly Father God, it astounds me to realise my soul gets tired and weary, for, if it needs restoring at times then it must get tired at times too! I guess it’s those days when I’m weary down to the very marrow of my bones and not only can’t physically do anything, but emotionally and spiritually feel nothing. Thankfully these times are few, but O God they are very real when they happen. Thank you that in these moments you allow me to PAUSE and rest, for the restoration and refreshment of the inner me as well as the physical me. Thank you that like in a good orchestrated score of music there are rests, pauses and stops! They are part of the music! Thank you Father God that you allow rests, stops and pauses in my life as you make me a symphony to your glory.

Thank you that you guide and direct me in the right paths, those paths that are right for me because they are part of your plan and PURPOSE  for my life! Those pathways are the steps that you pre-planned for my life; your predetermined and predestined pathways that if I walk in my life will be full and my destiny fulfilled. Sometimes O God my life is all go, full of stuff and junk and I have to ask ‘is this really of you or am I just doing stuff because I’m bored or I think I should?’ Father I know those times when I have run, worked and lived according to your purposes and it was like flying as an eagle! Easy! Forgive me for the times I move out of your will, plans and purposes, I sure know the difference!

Thank you gracious God that you refresh me and guide me for the honour of your name. It never ceases to astound me O God that you have invested so much of your Spirit in to my whole life. It’s your name and reputation that is on the line and at stake, for you have made me a witness of your love, an ambassador of your goodness, a vessel of your grace and a servant of your gospel. For your name’s sake O God, for the honour of your name and the veracity of your word and PROMISES help me to represent you with integrity and truth for your name’s sake. Amen

Let's make a start. I am a Christian but I guess that's pretty obvious. I am a gardener, builder by trade. I live in the Black country. I love 50s 60s 70s and 80s music. I play guitar and sing. I do open mic nights, I love growing veg and flowers, but I don't eat the flowers. Well I eat cauliflowers but that's not the same. If you need a good Gardener/bricklayer/landscaper and plasterer, not all in one go of course then contact me. My business is Dedicated In Gardens or D.I.G. Do you get it! Or do you dig it? johnkarlw@gmail.com

  1. Lord God Almighty, I thank you for all the blessings you have given me. Thank you for the life full of happiness and love. You have provided me with everything I need. You gave me my family and friends who inspire, encourage and bless me with love and kind words. They are always there to lift me up when I feel down and in sorrow. If not because of you, I won’t be loved this much. Thank you, oh lord, for your glorious and unwavering love and kindness. Even with my sins and misgivings that made you suffer in the Cavalry, you still give me the people who you knew can love and protect me the way you want to love and protect me as my Father. Lord God, I also thank you for granting all my prayers. Even with the wrong doings I have done, you always find in your heart to listen and answer my prayers. I have never imagined that you will bless me this much my Almighty Father. You keep me safe by providing me home. You make me and my family secure because of the work you have given me. Thank you Lord for providing me everything according to your riches and glory, oh God. Thank you Jesus Christ for your grace and mercy even with the disbelief and weakness my flesh has shown over you. Thank you for the everyday life you have given me. Thank you for allowing to me to see the beauty of sunrise and the mystery of sunset again. But above all, thank you Father God for giving me another chance to spend more time with my family and friends. That alone oh Lord is enough for me to thank you and be grateful for what you have done for me, now and for always. I know my Almighty Father that I am not worthy of your love and glory, of your forgiving heart. But still Father God, accept my sincerest apologies and my deepest thanks to you who gave me life, who gave me my happiness and who made my life entirely complete. If not for you Jesus Christ, I wouldn’t be who I am now. Thank you my Father and my Savior. In this I pray, in your name Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
