Diary Entry 102

Lord, answer me in my time of need.

Have I sinned, Yes;

have I forgotten, Yes;

Lord, open the ears of Heaven, I plead.

 

Lord answer me in my time of need;

please, guide my feet to Your way of peace.

I seek to know truth; experience goodness;

allow my cup to overflow with Your fullness.

 

I have sinned against the one I love;

mere humanness would dictate painful shove.

I feel withdrawn from Your spiritual nature,

yet I know You'll return, my forgiving savior.

 

Lord, answer me in my time of need.

Have I sinned, Yes;

have I forgotten, Yes;

Lord, open the ears of Heaven, I plead.

 

I have forgotten the promise of the One I love,

a whisper in rough winds quickly swept above.

Imperfect ears linger on societal demand;

send the Spirit to remind me of Your fruitful plan.

 

Lord, open the ears of Heaven, I plead;

I want to live by Your faithful lead.

Help me to linger in the depths of mercy;

fill me quickly, Lord, for I am thirsty.

 

Lord, I hear You in my time of need.

Have I sinned, Yes;

Have I forgotten, Yes;

Lord, the ears of Heaven open even in my plea.

 

Reflection: 

 

Take note of the first and last stanza. What has changed? Our ability to hear His steady voice: "I am always with you - in all of your sinfulness - I am there - even when you forget - I am there. My dearest child, the ears of Heaven remain faithfully open to your plea. Speak to Me,

I am here."
