This weeks ‘Weekend Inspirations is one of Lorraine’s poems. We are truly blessed to have Lorraine writing for us now, Lorraine taught creative writing at college level. Be blessed by this poem ‘Listen To Me Lord’
LISTEN TO ME MY LORD’.
Have mercy on me my Lord
Have compassion on me Jesus.
Forgive me Lord when I don’t listen
to others, and my hold my tongue Lord,
when I speak harshly or judge them.
Wipe my tears when I hurt so much,
they would fill so many a jar.
Give me words of wisdom when I
talk to those who hurt also.
Open my eyes and ears Lord,
to know to draw alongside one
who suffers much
and in need of your comfort.
Help me God, to know your plans
for me, always and often.
Thank you Lord, for your love in our hearts
even when we are rejected and neglected
and have many problems, Father.
When our choices leave apart from your footprints,
grant us, O God, your power as we thank you
in our sorrows and sadness that when we cry,
you weep with us in our faith, with feelings,
loving compassion and endless empathy.
Thanks for listening Lord, to this humble
heart seeking your presence to change mine.
Be Blessed Today And Everyday,
