Footprints In The Sand is one of my favorites.
I Sought My Soul
I sought my soul, But my soul I could not see I sought my God, But my god eluded me. I sought my brother, And I found all three.
I use scriptures:
1 (A Psalm of David.) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
I read the New Testament when I was in Junior High. My first book I bought was a 10 cent Bible.
But I stopped reading for a long time when people in my life used the scriptures to manipulate me. I am returning to the sacred text and remind myself that Heavenly Father loves me and sent many examples of life's challenges. Ester, Ruth, Joseph sold into Egypt, Job, and many others are becoming my heroes. Life shook them up and threw them down but they sought the Lord. They felt fear and prayed. They faced challenges and prevailed. When I feel a need to seek spiritual experiences, I know where to turn.
