Have you ever felt like God couldn’t-or didn’t want to-hear you? Here’s a poem I wrote that was inspired by such feelings…
O Jesus, my Saviour, Please, do you care?
O Father, my Friend, Are you really there?
My words just evaporate into thin air!
O Lord, you’ve promised my burden to bear
But just at the time when my load I’d share
My words just vanish into the air!
I’m crying, I’m crying but still I’m not found
These thoughts about You just spin round-n-round
And now my words just bounce on the ground!
I cried Lord for help; but it did not come
O Jesus, please give me Your Spirit just some!
But Lord at this moment my voice has gone dumb!
I give up just now-I’ve lost somehow
My voice will be quiet-My mind shall be silent
O My precious child, you now hear my voice
“Be still” is surely the very best choice
My words were drowned by all of your noise
Now come lay it down, and I’ll pick it up
And come to my table, together we’ll sup
With My Living Water I’ll fill your dry cup!
My Spirit you asked for, just open your heart
And My Holy Spirit of you will be part
On your tablet mind I’ll draw My best art
My child, don’t cry your Father is near
With Me by your side, you’ve nothing to fear
I’m talking to you! Now please, won’t you hear?
Dear Jesus, I’m sorry, I now understand
It’s not on my words but Yours I must stand
Now Saviour please guide me by Your precious hand
O Jesus, my Saviour, I’m sure that you care
O Father, my Friend, I know you are there
Your words won’t go into thin air!
I wrote this poem at midnight (almost exactly-one of those “I can’t sleep with this poem in my head!” nights…), May 20, 2011. Rest assured God’s words will NEVER fail! And He hears our prayers…and ALWAYS answers, even if it’s not in the way we think He should answer.
Until next time,
