Love Letter to God #12

Most High Lord,

I tried to do it on my own
I taught it to my children, too.
We tried to save ourselves
And steal the glory from You.

We forced Your Word
To the back of our minds.
We ran after fame and fortune
And comfort, we fell right in line

With greed and sin
With corruption and lust.
We forgot Your Way
And that You are just.

I don’t want to wait
Until my days are at an end
To come to myself
And to fully comprehend,

I am not my own.
I was bought with a price.
You are my Savior and protection
You beam the sacrifice.

I can wait no longer
I have to return
To the safety of Your arms.
To the peace I have desperately yearned.

I’m coming to you now
I’m bringing my family along
We are full of shame and regret
But it’s with You we belong.

Show us how to remain
How to submit.
Give us the path to take
We will walk in it.

Because our only hope is in you,

Your Humble Beloved

Jeremiah 30:19-21 (NIRV)

People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you won’t weep anymore. When you cry out to the Lord for help, he will have mercy on you. As soon as he hears you, he’ll answer you. He might treat you like prisoners. You might eat the bread of trouble. You might drink the water of suffering. But he will be your Teacher. He won’t hide himself anymore. You will see him with your own eyes.  You will hear your Teacher’s voice behind you. You will hear it whether you turn to the right or the left. It will say, “Here is the path I want you to take. So walk on it.”
