As I was watching Worship
I heard the preacher say
And now how can I help you
What’s on your heart today
If you had just one question
That you could ask the Lord
I came right to attention
That really struck a chord
What is it like in heaven?
Why did You make Adam?
Why did You make me?
Why did you let Satan
Overcome so easily?
What about the angels
Surely they get lonely
They’re not made in Your image
As You made me to be
What about eternity
It’s really hard to see
How it had no beginning
And the end will never be
So many hours I studied
And realized finally
Your Word has all the answers
I need in this journey
COMMENT ON ONE QUESTION
This one is a bit lighter then most of the poems,
While living in Belize I was listening to a
preacher from Puerto Rico. I always felt
light-hearted after his sermons.
He had a way of taking some of the parables
and seeing the irony and the humor in them.
This poem was inspired after hearing one of
The Word has given me answers and I am so
grateful for it.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation
of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Knock and I will answer
Seek and you will find
Why does it seem harder
To talk to you sometimes
Then I stop to examine
What have I done today
Have I committed any sin
Getting in the way
The only time I find it hard
Is when I move away
Make sure I stay on guard
Please help me Lord to stay
I know words do not matter
You see right through my heart
You know what I am about to say
Even before I start
I thank You God for listening
Praying day or night
For me prayer is talking and listening to God.
It is a response to God inviting me to spend time with Him.
He wants to have a relationship and prayer
helps develop my relationship with Him.
What I yearn and long for in this life is having
that relationship with Him.
I can go to Him with problems, with confessions,
with my gratitude. He will never tire
of hearing from me,
He loves me and knows me by name.
Praying isn’t always easy. When I have sinned
and not confessed it seems like my prayers are futile.
But it isn’t that God is not there, not listening.
In the Bible it says
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart”
I was seeking when I felt His presence.
Seeking is a way of praying.
God knows what I need or what I am going to say.
I wasn’t eloquent, I just cried out wanting to know Him.
In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears
