Many times, I have declared
that I can’t take much more.
I’ve ranted and raved
and I’ve wailed and cried.
I’ve begged You to
intervene in what pains me.
Many times, You have asked
how much more am I willing to take.
You’ve listened and comforted
again and again with patience and grace.
You’ve revealed Truth through chosen voices
and You’ve provided ways of escape, many times.
Many times I have heard You
and I’ve listened to the Truth.
I’ve continued on my path
waiting for You to do what You do.
Today, I die to my self and my plans
so that You can resurrect in me a new life.
Many times You have had to remind me
that You are God and that I am not.
