Lord Is That You

Lord is that you
Your arms around me
As I sleep within your love
Lord is that you
You arms embrace me
And I can’t help but wonder
Why you’d come to comfort
A sinner who’s under the law


This was all I got before I fell asleep last night. It was good to feel that God was with me, just holding me in his arms despite all my wretchedness. I would like to finish this, but I don’t think I can until I feel the same way I felt last night. If any of you get that feeling, feel free to take a crack at adding to it.

Because I do what I’m told When Words Aren’t Enough

    Wow, I think it’s finished!

    However, if you want the poetic banter…I’d be happy to take a crack at it.

    …I dream of Your works in awe
    Lord is that you?
    That keeps me protected
    When I walk in wayward ways
    Seemingly lost for days
    When my vision is blurred by the haze?
    Lord is that you
    Holding my hand
    When my palms are sweaty and cold
    When I’m weak are You standing there bold?
    Lord, if it’s You then break my mold
    Take me, reshape me, I’m sold.

    Let me know what you think….
