The hustle and bustle we encounter each day. We struggle and find ourselves in a losing battle.
Then one day someone comes along and asked you, "What do you need?"
You quickly respond, "Money!"
But the stranger asked you a second time, "What do you need?" You realized he asked you about something more significant that touches your very soul. You ask yourself, how do I respond. Your mind goes blank. He asked you a third time, "What do you need?" You feel embarrassed, you don't know how to answer his question. So you walk away with your head hanging down.
Read the following poem and then ask yourself, "What do you need?"
TIME, that is what I need is time.
To live this life and leave my past behind.
SMILE, that is what I need and it can be done,
To put on a smile and show it to everyone.
LOVE, that is what I need in my heart,
To embrace this emotion right from the start.
FRIEND, that is what I need is a friend,
Someone who will be there till the end.
PRAY, that is what I need to do is pray,
To seek the Lord and call on him today.
PEACE, that is what I need is peace within,
I can find it by letting God come in.
LIFE, that is a gift that I know is mine,
All I need to do is let it shine.
