Succulent

Succulent

Just like a succulent we are standing in different places
Over times we have adapted a special way to survive
With different ways to look at each other we have evolve to who we are Sometimes you would not understand a stranger’s ways or looks A harsh word is part of their defends due to the way they are treated Like a succulent has to adapt to no rain so he has to conserve the water Some people had to adapt to live without any love and it made them untrusting Lord, help us to understand the people around us
Give us the understanding to reach all around us
Dear Lord, let Your love rain on those who has to survive without it Let Your Spirit fold over them to protect them from the son
Send them Your word so they can listen to Your voice
Although the juice are bitter You can change it to medicine
Dear Lord, protect us from evil in this wonderful day
Protect us from retreating to an existence of hate and evilness Give us the strength to stand out and shine in the place where You put us Fitted with thorns to conserve the little water it receive a succulent look dangerous
But once the conditions change beautiful flowers soften its appearance Change our thorns of hate and envy to love and understanding Give us flowers of graciousness and acceptance
Lord, fill us with the same love and kindness that Jesus showed to us Dear Lord, teach us Your ways and mold us to Your liking and needs We thank You for loving us, and protecting us from what we can not see
