Conversations with God

Divine Revelation

Him: I whisper “I love you”
as you awake each morning,
every second throughout the day
then once again as you drift to sleep.

Me: I can’t hear you because I’m not listening.
Please give me space; I want to be alone now.
Stop telling me all these good things,
I don’t deserve them.

You know me so well so how could you love me?
How can you see everything I am
and still reach out your arms to me?

Him: I love you because I made you.
You are perfect in my eyes.
I accept you as you are so come close.

Me: I’m afraid to draw near to you
for fear that you’ll disappoint me,
abandon me, break my heart.

Him: I would never do anything to hurt you.

Me: I believe you.
