Faith

Why do we worry and stress
Instead of awaiting God to bless

We make choices that have consequences
Blaming Him for our mistakes is our greatest offense

Why do we fight against His will
Instead of trusting His Word to instill

Faith that everything will work out just as its supposed to
And not always when and how we want it to

We need to learn how to let go
And realize that He is the One that is in control

All He asks for is our love and obedience
Pray at the altar with faith and confidence

Live out our purpose here in this life
And He guarantees us eternal life

With inner peace and unconditional love
Just build a personal relationship with God above

Yep, I talk to God saying just about what I'd say to ANY really, REALLY good friend...

He MUST hear, because He has been very good to me.

When I read you poems I sometimes hear a beat or a melody inside my head... Do you write music too? It is something about the rythm of it, the rhymes (is that even how to spell it?)... I really liked this poem. You seem to have found faith and hope and love - all good. I am so happy for you, you seem like such a sweet person! :) Take care. Peace and love/ Jo.

Loved it. Isn't it amazing how we blame him for our decisions even though he told to what to do and what not to do. Your words speak so true. I've watched your spiritial growth in a short span. It's truly amazing and you are truly blessed! Great Post!
