Learning to live His way


From where I stand the world seems bleak

From where he stands the world is concrete

And even when I dare not trust his ways

He knows how I’m doing all my days

He cares for me and loves me more than I know

He holds me close beside him even when I try to let go

Never before have I known love like this

Yet sometimes I feel myself still trying to resist

His patience and understanding are more than I deserve

My desire for him alone he’s been trying to preserve

On days when I give in to the pressures of the world

He strengthens my heart and keeps it unfurled

My only hope in life is to love him completely

Every time I push him away I suffer indiscreetly

It’s time for me to stop playing such foolish games

I’ve got to be serious or face terrible shame

His ways are far greater than my own

Which is why he sits on his heavenly throne

Someday I hope to sit close by his side

It’s where I eventually hope to reside

  1. This is so lovely and I can relate to this. Even though it may seem like things are not going the way you planned we always know God has his shield around us to keep us from falling. If you feel as though you are falling you can always get back up and try again. God said in his word he will never leave us or forsake us. Stay Blessed & Stay Encouraged & continue to write. This is so beautiful. Remember God is always listening.

  4. Thank you Rob…. I originally posted this last year and thought I could really use a reminder of it today. Writing poetry is my outlet and reading it later is therapeutic. Hope you’re having a great week! 🙂
