Wandering prayer, by Faith Subscribe to rss feed for Faith

If I close my eyes
and try 
to disappear
will the doubt
along with
this fear I feel?

Or am I doomed
to fail
at almost 
I do?

If I close my eyes
will I become 
the silence
between Your words?

Will I feel connected
in some 
small way
to the
elaborate plans
You hold out to me
in Your hands?

If I shut my eyes
for a moment
and release
from the vice
I repeatedly lock it in
will You teach me
to love
as You love?




Or am I alone
in this struggle?

If I scream 
at the top
of my lungs
will You answer?

Will You send
water from heaven
to drench
my dry
weary soul
before I drift away
with the wind?

Or am I already lost?

--I penned this one just today. Yes, i am a Christian, but that doesn't mean that i have an easy time trusting God... slowly but surely i am learning to give Him more of my trust. Pray that i get there one day.--

I really love this poem and I find myself relating to it. As I was reading it, I thought to myself "this is how I actually feel sometimes". I too am a Christian and come across those times in my life in which I doubt the Lord's love for me but this poem is soo comforting to read. In a way, its puts the reassurance back in my heart.

This is a great poem Faith and while I'm here I'd like to thank you for your comments. I've actually had some of my earliest work published in America, unfortunately I live in New Zealand. Anyway this was beautiful, keep it up.

I feel like this often...trusting, hoping and believing in God is sometimes one of the hardest things to do.
