Could you love me God? Little me?
Could you love me THAT much?
Could I really become clean?
Help me find my true self, my desires,
Help me find the pathway through the dark,
Help me LOVE.
I want to love.
I want others to want your Love,
and to know its power ,
through seeing me change.
I am just a little girl, a little lost,
Bewildered by this BIG world I find myself in.
Help me touch my sorrow.
There is so much sadness
It feels knit into the fibres of my being.
Help me love the colour of my soul,
Just as it is,
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you,
There are no words for you.
I am just a little girl
with words, far too few
Help me find the words, the will,
to share your Glory.
How can I know you well?
I am humbled by You
Your presence makes me want to bow down for you,
How can I face you?
You know me so well and I feel shame,
How could you love me after knowing me?
I am so broken
and oh so little.
Help me have faith that I may heal.
Help me have courage
to stand on your doorstep
and knock on your door
Let me feel worthy enough
to ask for your Love and your Wisdom.
I do not feel deserving of such things
I am little
and a lot broken.
Hey everyone, this is my first ‘Poem to God’
Last year when I ran the workshops one of the activities was for you all to write a Poem to God and it was always, inevitably my favourite part in every weekend. I loved watching you all shine as you shared your poems with each other. After the workshops some of you sent me your poems and I have them stored in a folder on my computer. Can I say I love them all. I cried as I read every single one of them. Each is as unique as the soul who created them. I find it one of the most precious things in the world to hear a heart call out to God, to want to talk to God.
It was a seed of a dream that one day someone, maybe Joseph (I have asked him yet!), may want to include some of your poetry in a publication. Who knows maybe someday we can do this…
