The Simple Poem
“We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.”
Psalm 33:20-22
Dear Father,
Last evening I tried to write a poem
To thank you for what you have done
And although my heart was overflowing
I could not write a word….. not one
O Jesus, sometimes it’s hard to express what lives inside of me
To hide my fears, my doubts and my insecurity
Many time my stubbornness gets in the way
And I don’t feel I want to write or sing or pray
But Jesus You know the words are there
They live deep down inside of me
Because I DO KNOW how you care
And that I always will be part of Thee
So Jesus, again I searched my wandering heart
But the words that came to mind were hollow,
Not good enough to explain my brand new start
And surely not right enough for You, the one I want to follow
But today is Your day dear Lord
And although this is all that I could bring
I offer you these simple words
And my praises in the songs I sing
Oh Lord, I thank you for being with me every day
And for listening to me when I pray
For putting up with me when I complain
And for sharing in my joy and pain
Go before me Lord today
And prepare for me the way
Help me to sing when de day is bright
And help me to praise you through the darkest night
As a windmill depends on the wind, so mankind depends on God
