I'm sorry, Lord Jesus!

Poetry By: Michael T Ingram

I sometimes fail - and this is about those times!
Maybe you can relate...

There are some days I walk about
and want to fight, or scream, or shout -
I want to beat my fists and cry
I want to quit, I want to die.

I seem to be so out of sorts -
nothing's fun, not games or sports!
There's nothing that I wanna do,
except for maybe be with You!

All the things I've done for You
I actually did for ME, some too,
I'm so selfish, I'm ashamed
because I know that I'M to blame...

For all the things between us now
were choices I HAD MADE somehow -
All the times I sat alone,
ignored my Lord, upon His throne!

I wisht I'd lived my whole life through
and spent it all alone with You -
Never leaving to watch t.v.
or bowl or sleep (or even pee)...

And then Your Grace envelops me,
and sets my soul and spirit free...
You love me in SPITE of me,
and all the times we disagree...

You're patient, loving, kind, it's true
and I can never stop loving You -
I have forever to walk and serve
and be the servant You deserve!

Help me, Lord Jesus!
