More Stars

Are there more stars up there,
in the heavens this night?
Or is that proof to my eyes
that You have changed my sight?

I fear Iíve fallen short
in, oh, so many ways.
But thereís something Iím learning
so very well these days.

Truly, it is by grace
that I remain in You.
Salvation comes by nothing
that I could ever do.

Though I canít count them all,
You know them all by name
and You have required of me
to love them all the same.

Help me lay me down, Lord.
Itís just so hard to do.
Yet, I know itís possible.
Lord, all things are with You.

Help me lay me down, Lord,
so You can live in me
and love the stars You have made
and the sands of the seas.

This one thing I desire,
to love them like You do.
But Lord, that is Your command -
to love them and love You.

Are there more stars up there,
in the heavens this night?
Or is that proof to my eyes
that You have changed my sight?

I REALLY LIKED THIS POEM. IT WAS A WONDERFUL REMINDER OF WHO GOD IS CALLING US TO BE. KEEP ABIDING IN HIM, HE IS DOING A GOOD WORK IN YOU. GOD BLESS

What a wonderful poem. As I read it, the words of a current worship song came to me, "There's only GRACE, there's only LOVE, there's only MERCY and believe me it's ENOUGH"... This is another "thought-provoking" poem you have written. Well done!

Dear Treava... Oh, yes, God CAN change our sight - when we ask, we receive a new, clear vision! This is so lovely and, once again, you will inspire many with your words and your BEAUTIFUL FAITH. Love, Peggy

I think He changes in our sight because it is us who change. You look just like your Father. I am proud to be your lil sis. lots of love.
