My inspiration for writing this poem came at a time when I felt my life was simply spinning out of control. I was ill, in pain and unable to work. As a result, I cried out to the Lord in my frustration, and this is a conversation I had with Him in my mind. He didn’t answer me right away, but after some time, I got a sense of the Holy Spirit speaking these words to my mind.
When the Holy Spirit guides us, it will be usually in a way that we would not normally take. We want to do our own thing, while He wants to lead us in a way that is best for us. I am learning to stop fighting Him, and I am now more open to allowing Him to lead. A lot can be learned about the Holy Spirit in the pages of the bible.
I hear of beautiful things happening to others,
Why not me?
All I get are anxious moments,
Can’t you see?
Where are you?
You seem so far away.
Why won’t you help me Lord,
My child, My heart breaks for you,
As I see you flounder and lose your way.
I keep showing you which way to go,
But you won’t listen to anything I say.
I tell you to stay in my Word,
I tell you in me you will find rest,
But instead you play your games,
Wasting your years, ignoring whats best.
I see you and I hear you,
And I know you are heartbroken.
But still you will not listen
To the Words that I have spoken.
