Dear Jesus, my Lord and king
Show me what you want of me
Tell me what I can do for you
I hear your whisper but my hands are tied.

Each day I feel your gentle touch
And hear you calling me
But at a loss I am dear friend
For I cannot understand.

The answer dear child is simple
I never give you more than you can bear
Just testify to all
The things I do for you each day.

What’s simple in your eyes sweet  Jesus
Seems  too big a job you impart  
Now you throw me into confusion
For I don’t know where to start.

Just take a pen and paper
And jot them one by one
Let my Holy Spirit guide you
Until your list is done.

Thank you dear Jesus
I am all set to give it a try
But please speak  very slowly
So  that I may get it right.

    We all want to understand what He expects of us, but cannot. Simply then, we must treat all as He would have, see all as He would have and be all as He would have. Then, we will be going through Him as expressed in the faith, for we must go through Him in order to get to heaven. Lovely write as it expresses the truth we all experience. Michael

    Beautiful write. Been in this place a few times myself. Continue to write. Someone is reading and God is getting the Glory.

    I know the concern of this poem, Meg. I too wonder why I am here. God gave me a talent and I only hope I will be able to follow his guidance. God Bless, Cile
