“You have granted me life and favor
And Your care has preserved my spirit.”   Job 10:12

If not for God, I would not be here.

Lord, I am here by Your design and desire my life to always reflect that.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

His Preserving Care

source –

You have granted me
life and favor
and in Your care
I’ve been kept.

May all my days
be lived out humbled
by Your great love
and how You bless.


  1. Oh, how wonderful! We are no mistake of nature or chance, but the intentional creation of a loving God. 🙂

  2. Amen, Amen, Sis Deb! What a lovely prayer/poem that echoes deep within my own heart–thank you! God bless you with a “resting” Fab Friday (listen for His voice saying, “Peace I give you–Go Slow”)–much love from your old sis who should take her own advice, Caddo Delight!

  3. amen sis with out Him none of us would be here today.

  4. “…If not for God, I would not be here…”

    On the day I was going to commit suicide, I met Jesus. So, I certainly can relate to this statement. Praise God!

  5. Celebrating you, today Ted, and the wonderful person you are in Him! God bless you!

  6. I love your thankful and grateful heart, always so thrilled with God and His care and blessings for you. 🙂 God bless you and bring you a fabulous Friday as well! love you, Sis Caddo Delight!

  7. That’s right! I am thankful! 🙂 God bless you dear Desiray, as He grants you God-sized life and favor!

  8. Mr. Larry, your testimony is soooo wonderful. Talk about an “on time” God! 🙂 I attempted suicide twice. He thwarted my efforts twice. I remember thinking I couldn’t even do this right. haha! God bless you! So thankful you are here!

  9. nice!

  10. It is _A_L_L_ about Him!
    He called me to Himself. He gave me the gift of faith and opened my understanding. He gave me eternal life with Him. He adopted me into His own family. He continues to work in me, non-stop. He is slowly perfecting me, and one day soon He will call me to my eternal home!

    What an amazing God!

  11. God bless you, Angel Terry, and bless you with His amazing love!

  12. I love how much you love God, Mentor Angela, and keep it all about Him! God bless you as He calls you to Himself today!

  13. nice pic, deb. i am thinking about the ending line after seeing the pic.

    May my days be lived out humbled by Your great love and how You bless, and to be more and more Christ-like till the day I see Your face.

  14. I can only say AMEN! You’ve put it so perfectly Deb. Great post for me to end this day on. Bless you xx

  15. I can be nothing other than humbled, because it is only in Him that I live, that I move, and have my being! I am absolutely nothing, apart from Him! It truly is, ALL ABOUT HIM, as Angela said! Love and prayers!


  16. Hi Z! So good to see you here and I really like the ending line you came up with! That is a great prayer to pray for me! God bless you and have a good weekend!

  17. God bless you, sweet Aimee, and fill your life full of His love and favor! love and hugs!

  18. God bless you, praising Paulette, as you move and breathe and have your being filled with Jesus! He loves you and so do I!

  19. It is just as you say…. we owe Him our existance and all that we are. What a wonderful truth to motivate us to serve Him in even greater ways. Lord bless you

  20. Your comment blesses me and reminds me of my youngest saying such and such a person probably loves Jesus too, because He created them. 🙂 God bless you as you serve Him with all your heart, Pastor Rob!

  21. Thank you, Dearest Deb!!

    I see Psalm 139 all over this !!

    I am forever grateful that I was designed by Love.


  22. 🙂 I love Psalm 139! And how you saw it all over this! God bless you, Ann full of grace and song and Jesus!

  23. Deb, I just loved this!


  24. God bless you and grant you favor abundantly! love and prayers, my friend!
