Hello God, I want to talk to you.
I want to share my thoughts, and all I say and do.
I know that you will listen, to everything I want to say,
I know that I am so very blessed, to talk with you this way.
I try hard to be patient with those you send my way,
but I almost lost my cool with my grumpy neighbor today.
I tried my best to calm her down,
she just looked at me with piercing eyes and frowned.
I thought, "there's no use in helping her," the way she looked at me,
she doesn't deserve my help Lord, as you can plainly see.
What's that you say? I've also done the same,
and yet I claim your name?
Thank you lord for reminding me that I'm not perfect yet,
and help me this lesson never to forget.
There's many things I can learn, and Lord you're teaching me,
while I'm helping others, this I will agree.
You send different people in our lives all along,
and when things don't go right we wonder what's wrong.
Help us to learn a lesson from each test you give,
so we can use it to help others know how to live.
I don't want to complain when things don't go my way,
cause I could sure use your help every single day.
I want to help my neighbor love you like I do,
so we can go to heaven, to spend eternity with you.
You said to love my neighbor, just like I do myself,
and not to shun them, while I sit upon a shelf.
I'm going to get busy right now, doing what I can.
I want to be a soul winner all throughout the land.
Friend when you die what will you say,
Will you turn to Him and say no one showed you the way?
Don't use that for an excuse pray tell,
it's better to surrender to the Lord now than winding up in hell.
