MY FOCUS OF ATTENTION

Dear Lord.

I am sorry, that I don't spend enough time with you.
I am sorry, that I don't talk to you as much as I should.
I am sorry, that I don't allow much time to listen to you; I am sure I could do better, and I do want to.
I am sorry, that I don't rest in your presence more often.
I am sorry, that I don't stop what I am doing sometimes; I should just lean on you - even if - for just a moment.

Why is it, that I don't have more quality time with you?
Well; I guess it's because - I am just too busy; too busy getting on with my busy life, when actually, yours is far more busy than mine; but you still want to spend time with me, and to share what's going on in my life, and that of my family and friends.

I thank you, that you care enough for me; that you want me to be resting in your arms - long enough to feel the full benefit of your love and attention.
I thank you, that you place those around me, whom I want to be with, and enjoy the presence of their company; whether that be friends, family, or friendly strangers.
I thank you, that you have made my heart have the capacity to grow - with each person I meet; each situation that I'm in; each challenge that I face.
I thank you, that you have made me unique; with the ability to think for myself; to look after myself; and grow into being the amazing individual that you planned me to be.

Please Lord, may I find more time to do the things I am supposed to be doing.
May I crave you; desire you; focus my attention upon you; and love you with all my heart.
I thank you, that I have a brain and can think; that I have the ability to feel and love.
Please help me, to use all my thoughts wisely; to have a full capacity of joy in my heart; to know and spread your peace.
Lord; I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for so many things you have bestowed upon me; and the breath of life I have within me.
Most of all, Lord; I thank you, so much, for your forgiveness; your grace and the mercy you have shown me, throughout my days on this earth.
I think that, those things themselves, warrant you my attention; and that I seek your face, more than occasionally.

I do love you Lord. You know how I feel, and what's on my heart; and all of the above - anyway!

I thank you Lord, that you are patient.

Loving you, loving me, ... for eternity.

Your adopted child x x x x x x x

Yes, Wesley. Do you know, I have always - until this piece - referred to God as 'You' or 'Him', with capital letters. I too, feel that it is respectful. However, saying that, it doesn't do it in the Bible. This aside, I think that this is such a personal piece - like a love letter - and at the time of composing it, the capital letters were not even in my mind; only the content. so please forgive me on this occasion. : ) Thank you for your thoughts.
Wesley Hesketh  26 Jun 2012
Sometimes we find ourselves far from the path. I know I have. praise be to God who is the leader of the way. You're right I have to focus my attention on the One that helps. One thing I thought we were to capitalize You, Him, etc when referring to God as a sign of respect. I might be wrong. really good work, keep it up.

Yes! Oh, yes! Several times lately, knowing my weakness, my propensity to sin....I have thought, "God knows my heart." Wing His Words!
