Tell others about Me; and all that Iíve done
Of the day when first we did meet,
Always be ready to give an account
To anyone I ask you to greet.
Readily share a meaningful verse,
Lead the hurting to My mercy seat.
Give Me Your Witness

Live life by faith seeking to please Me
Cover all youíre doing with prayer,
Bring Me your pain, burdens and sorrows
I am your Lord and I truly care.
Spend time in My Word, meditate child,
On whatever I show you in there.
Give Me Faith Walking

Trials and sufferings, pain and grieving
All make demands on your tender soul,
Tears arising, welling and spilling
Covering you face with a hot flow.
You feel forsaken, wounded and breaking,
But ever so slowly you will grow.
Give Me Your Weeping

You beg me for faith to move mountains
And earnestly seek after My face,
You study scriptures, reading for hours
Yet you feel you are running in place.
Consider My timing is not in your hands,
Allow Me to fill you with grace.

This is really good! I like the way you paint a profound picture of a heart yearning to please God, without having to make statements about purpose. You have a poet's heart, for sure!

I like what you are doing, here. The meter needs a bit more attention, but I do sense your love of putting just the right words together. Poetry is good discipline for the writer for this reason.

Look for the poetry section at the Message Boards. We can have fun polishing one others' skills!
