I look at you And I shake at the knees Even one day ahead Too much for me to perceive To Control you is impossible To take hold of you improbable Let Go and Let God It’s all that remains.

My Lord, Adonai I have refused to hear I have refused to seeContinue reading “Poem – Great Love of Mine”

Teach me Your ways O’ Lord Show me what it is to do Your Will Lead me in ways of righteousness Confusion haunts the wandering mind. How to discern what is true? How to discern what is false? How to know the difference between? Which water will bring life and which will bring sickness? ReligionContinue reading “Fighting to Believe”
