The sun is brightly shining
on this summersí day.
Birds arriving home again,
children run and play.

The ticking of the clock
time goes fleeing by.
I try to live within each tick,
but I can only try.

I look around with sadness
and see the mess Iím in.
Sucked up in the mire,
covered with my sins.

What will happen to my life?
only You can say.
You are the truth,and the light,
quietly I pray.

Oh God tell my story
so I can plainly see.
Everything You do,
I know You love me.

Thank You for Your blessings,
Youíve opened up my eyes.
You calmed my fearful heart,
You quieted my cries.

With sweet persuasion
Youíre showing me the way.
Nudging me forward,
helping me to pray.

On this summersí morning
I open up my soul.
I'm asking You to come in,
making my life whole.

This is really lovely, It's voice reminds me of some poems I've written. It's nice to know others understand and Outstanding to know God understand even more.

Small editing note: summers' day should be summer's day.

All in all you did a nice job with this heartfelt plea.

This poem touched my sometimes fearful heart. This is a beautifully written tool that I would be pleased to use in my personal evangelism. It speaks softly and directly to the soul.
