Just like us

 

Lord,

You had emotions,
Just like us,

Yet you faced your trials and sorrows
Without sin.

You loved,
Without possessiveness;

Got angry,
Without blaming other people;

Wept,
Without self-pity;

Feared,
Without avoidance;

Suffered,
Without hatred;

And despaired,
Without losing faith in God.

Lord, you had emotions,
Just like us,

Yet you faced your trials and sorrows
Without sin.

You love me

Hello, everyone. Here is my response to the questions posed by yesterday’s blog:

 

Lord God,

Though I am even less
Than nothing,
You made me,
And you keep me,
Every day;

You help me
Face my trials
And my sorrows,
Because you love me deeply,
Come what may.
