Confessions of a Selfish Person & Prayer of a Person Desiring to Love

I am a very selfish person.

I smirk, when I should serve.

I gather when I should scatter.

I hold on to things when I should let go.

I beg when I should offer.

I consume when I should produce.

I pollute when I should come clean.

I become better when I should help things get better.

Let me not clatter meaning like a gong, but speak simply encourage.

Let me not be proud of my knowledge but use it conscientiously.

Let me not give merely of my time, nor my things, nor offer my body without offering my heart.

I long to be kind to both kin and kings and commoners and cursors of men.

Lord, let me love you and let me love my neighbor,

But do, Lord, simply let me love.

Patience

Waiting to get there.
Waiting for a friend to come back.
Waiting for grandma to get in the car.
Waiting for eternity.
Waiting for now. …

Not everything happens at once.
Not everything is fast.
Not everyone has the courage.
Not everyone is in a hurry.
Not all dreams come true quickly.
Not all days pass in a flash.

… still waiting
will be waiting still when the end of all things come.
And so I won’t pass by the roses,
their thorns or fragrances,
eternity won’t pass me by
for it is in my life today,
for my heart has found the way.

Non-Fiction

How in the world can I be sure?

How can I forever be secure?

I take refuge in the truth

that the Messiah came from Ruth

and David, Abraham, and Isaac and Jacob

Judah and yet his still had taken

a throne but still poured out His Life

for His own. He obtained a bride

by serving the least, preparing a feast,

called insane when fasting and choosing to eat

with sinners from the south and seekers from Greece

and making the poor rich and the weak

he made strong. He trough us to do right

and not to get worried or all uptight

but to rest in the hands of the King

His Joy descends on those who seek him and sing!

Hallelujah!!

Sand or Rock

(I read this parable this week from Matthew, but the writing is from about 4-5 years ago)
House of brick & mortar built on sand:
requiring constant maintenance,
in the desert,
distant, deceptive father of lies.
The father of this house mocks and abuses his children.
Castle carved out of mountainous rock:
Receiving a constant flow of refugees,
amid gardens,
Father of Truth & Love is the Host.
The Father loves to see His name in His many children.
