An Awareness of God
An awareness of God
I’m beginning to see
The depth of His love
That reaches to me.
Though I am unworthy
Of His mercy and grace,
He looks upon me
As I seek His face.
He speaks softly to me
Then, to Him, I respond
And I know He is seeking
An everlasting bond.
The Creator of heaven
Of earth and of sea
Wants to be my Father
And spend time with me.
By Nancy K. Sullivan (1989)
Learning to Live
Learning to live a life that is free
Is learning to pray and wait patiently.
Learning to live a life full of hope
Is yielding to God when we cannot cope.
Learning to live a life that is strong
Is trusting while healing – when days seem so long.
Learning to live a life we can’t see
Is reaching our hand through eternity:
To the God who knows our needs and our cares
And lovingly, thoughtfully answers our prayers;
To the God who is waiting for us to release
The things that deny us our comfort and peace;
To the God who created and made us His own,
Who reaches to heal us from His mighty throne.
