Poem for God.

Do you love me right where I am?

Am I doing enough? Lord I know you already have…

My soul is thirsty, yet I’m reaching for something more.

How long can I drink this until I’m empty and poor?

Pour me out O Lord and fill me with you,

help me desire your love like you’ve told me to.

Testing your grace with my careless sin leaves me with grief…

yet I do it again.

If I depended on my works to save me I wouldn’t know what to do,

but Ephesians 2:8 says there’s nothing I can do.

When you came into my life everything was new,

growing complacent is the last thing I thought I would do…

Your love still amazes me till this very day,

but when temptation comes my faith begins to sway.

I try to buy my way back to you with the guilt of my sin,

and when I think I’ve finally had enough… I do it again.

My sin is ever before me and it’s sometimes too hard to bear,

but Lord your grace is sufficient and I know you won’t leave me there.
