With an Open Heart: An Original Poem

I use to write poetry very often and even performed an original poem once at a church convention when I was younger. I am willing to share so much, but poetry is one of those things I often keep very private. I hadn’t written anything in years,  but I missed it and asked God to awaken that gift on the inside of me again. This is something I literally just wrote. I hope it blesses you.

WITH AN OPEN HEART

How do you manage to love someone like me,

When my soul and flesh have been misused and confused?

With my mouth and words I express my love for thee,

But my actions are so transient and fleeting.

How do you steadily manage to give me chance after chance when I put you last?

My comfortability in this relationship should not give me a pass.

You love me unconditionally, so what’s the condition?

Why can’t I trust you with my complete submission?

This life is so confusing, but somehow with you it makes sense,

You calm the storms in my mind, with you I am content.

So Lord, my prayer everyday is that you be patient with me.

My spirit is so willing, but my flesh is so weak.

Please acknowledge my scarce efforts, I’m doing my best.

Your word says you aren’t like man, you won’t abandon me like the rest.

So to you I’ll stick close, and hope you can see my heart.

In all your ways you are perfect, help me to do my part.

  1. WOW!! I am literally MOVED! This was perfect especially for my situation that I was going through. I found myself questioning God sometimes and asking, “Why me, God?” one day I was sitting in my car pouring my heart out to him and he spoke to me that very same night and told me ,”Ashley, be patient, your time is coming, just trust in me” .So from then on that’s exactly what I did! He has blessed me in so many ways from that moment and still is!
    I just want to share this message with you guys that was the topic on first Wednesday at Church this past week:
    “Sometimes you need a good breakdown to get a good BREAKTHROUGH!” AMEN!
    LOVE YOU GUYS AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS NETTE! KEEP DOING WHAT GOD HAS PLACED ON YOUR HEART!

    • Ashleyyyy!! You just made my day! Thanks so much for sharing that because it is so true!! God is faithful man! Even when we put him on the back burner he is always always always looking our for us. I love him so much for that. I’m so glad for all your blessings and breakthroughs, you deserve it hunny.

      We have to start getting into the habit of asking “Why not me?” Everything he does has a plan and a purpose! Thanks again sis! You have inspired us. Love you!
