Dear Diary

Day One:



I asked God for what I want AGAIN.
I pray for it every day;
It's hard when weeks go by,
And I still don't get my way.



Day Two:



Maybe I should just stop prayin.'
All I do is wait;
Why doesn't God give me what I want?
They say He's never late.



Day Three:



Am I askin' for the wrong thing?
Is it just not His Will?
I guess He doesn't want me to have it.
Atleast that's how I feel.



Day Four:



How long must a person wait
Until they get what they've prayed?
It's been six weeks for me,
And I'm startin' to feel dismayed.



Day Five:



Maybe I should ask for what He wants.
Maybe that's what I need to do;
Instead of just prayin' for what I want,
I'll ask what He wants too.



Day Six:



I asked God what He wanted,
But I didn't hear Him speak;
I've had nothin' to write in this diary,
And it's been almost a week.



Day Twenty-Three:



It's been a while since I wrote.
I ended up getting depressed;
My prayer wasn't answered,
And I couldn't hear God in my distress.


But one night, when I was crying,
I finally heard Him say;
"Give Me you,
And I'll give you what you pray."


So I started spending time with Him,
And gave Him all of me;
I didn't know why God wanted that,
But in time, I would see.


He showed me how I hurt Him.
For months, I pushed Him away;
Then when I had a need, I expected Him
To answer when I pray.


This diary is in my hands again
Because now I have something to write;
I don't want what I wanted anymore.
I found all I've ever wanted that night.
