An Honest Prayer

Folder: 
Christianity

 

 

I've heard you when I haven't listened

I've seen you when my eyes were shut and closed

God, this patient grace of yours is beyond me.

 

I've called and seen you answer

and I've seen enough to read between the lines

and hear you in the silence.

 

Forgive me God, this heart of violence,

my heart belongs to you -

I cherish all the years you gave me,

what you gave me was your love.

 

How can I love you not?

I love your perfect heart,

the very heart mine yearns to match -

like a painting and its painter

like a toy and its maker.

 

God take this lonely heart of mine,

before it breaks and founders.

Every day it dully aches

to find your love.

... amazing.

That is so beautiful! It took my breath away!

Forgive me God, this heart of violence
my heart belongs to you-
I cherish all the years you gave me,
what you gave me was your love.
How can I love you not?
I love your perfect heart

I love how you wrote this! I often want to be closer to God, but with so much to do, and so much bad things in the world, sometimes I do find it hard.
Beautiful poem!

And I do too. I am glad that you have such a good relationship with him, as most people don't.
