I wrote this poem during a recent quiet time with God. Usually when I write creatively about Jesus I won’t post it on my blog because it’s not neat, it’s just words that aren’t edited or properly ordered. But today I thought I may as well. We’re all human, and things get a little messy sometimes. Here’s proof of mine.
Saying things will change
Feels like the last time
Maybe this is different
But my heart seems the same.
I kneel before Your throne
And say Your will be done
But has anything in me grown
To accept You’re in control?
I need You all the time
But only seek You when I cry
I call You ‘Mighty Lord’ and ‘Saviour’
So why is it so hard to change my behaviour?
A losing battle, uphill fight
I ask for Your help but give up overnight
Why aren’t I changing
I guess I’m not trying hard enough.
God, You’re the most important
But I have other things to do
Can we please talk tomorrow
When I’ve already done what You don’t want me to do?
Tomorrow I’ll say things will change
We’ll have been through this before
We’ll go on and on, up and down
Can’t You tell I love You?
