WILL THEY LISTEN, LORD?

Will they listen, LORD...
... as I speak about Your Love and Truth?
... as I speak about Your Desire to have a Relationship with each individual?
... as I speak about Your Hope for a new beginning - a slate wiped clean?
... as I speak about Your Passionate Call on each life?

Will they listen, LORD...
... as I explain that past failures can be overcome triumphantly?
... as I explain that past mistakes can be put right with Your Help?
... as I explain that wrong choices can be broken free of with Your Help?
... as I explain that wrong attitudes can be changed through Your Love?

Will they listen, LORD...
... if I am passionate about You?
... if I am honest about You?
... if I am open about You?
... if I am consistent about You?

Will they listen, LORD...
... when I can only speak about how You've Treated me?
... when I can only speak about how You've Patiently Taught me?
... when I can only speak about how You've Unconditionally Loved me?
... when I can only speak about my perceptions of You?

Will they listen, LORD...
... or simply turn away?
... or ridicule me because of my love for You?
... or be angry because I cannot not speak about You?
... or think I'm mentally derranged?
... or...

Will they listen, LORD?
