It isn’t much it seems at times, and I wonder if enough
but I give my life to you Lord
I sit and think it should be more
if I could only clear out all the other stuff

Lord I would honor you, shine for you, be who you want me to be
what if I can’t do it
what if I disappoint you
the questions plague my thoughts and the tears begin to flow freely

I want to be all I can for you Lord, never let you down
I fear in myself that I’ll never make it
that I’m doomed to spend a life trying, and failing
and in the end will be passed by when you lovingly hand out the crowns

My heart longs to give you more, you deserve everything
it breaks at the thought of a single tear
that you might cry when I fall
and covets the joy and feeling your glowing approval would bring

“Well done, my good and faithful servant” could you say those words to me?
My brain reminds me of the list
the errors rolling constantly like a reel
I imagine others could be good enough but with my lacking life, they couldn’t be

I look up and pray “Lord help me, I’m drowning and I can’t get out!”

Your words fill my soul, “Love keeps no record of wrongs, my Beloved”
how could that be
after all the mistakes I’ve made, that you would love me still
“My child to the end from the beginning you are loved”

This life, the wilderness I walk through can be difficult at times
the terrain is rough
and the path filled with dangers
its because you love me that I can hope to make it, as you lead to the finish line

Everything that happens in this life whether good or bad
you cause to work together for my good
though I don’t fully understand
you never leave me, even when I fail, and for that Lord I will be forever, gratefully glad.

Very pretty and heartfelt. You can feel the sincerity of your heart pour from this and it is such a down to earth piece. You captured my heart with your honesty and openness. God bless your writing!

I enjoyed this open, honest conversation with God. Life is certainly full of bumbles and stumbles.

This brought tears to my eyes, and that is the biggest compliment a writer can get; when the reader is touched by the sentiments of the author.

Your heart was clearly at the center of "your talk with God," and it was lovely and honest...I am sure our Father is "well pleased" - Beautifully done!

Keep on writing as honestly as you just have. I loved it, thank you! God Bless you~
