I sigh for you

 

O, my Lord, I sigh for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I’ll leave my sins behind,  
And try to love all humankind. 

O, my Lord, I long for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I will forgive each foe,
And work to pay back all I owe.

O, my Lord, I yearn for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I’ll never judge, or hate,
And always seek your narrow gate.

O, my Lord, I thirst for you.
Let me start my life anew.
Then I’ll bravely face each fear, 
And strive to serve your kingdom, here.

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.

Let go

The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21; NIV).

Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

 

Lord,
Please help me
To let go
Again and again
Of longing
To be different
From how I am.
