The Patience of God

To quote a Quaker phrase, this lovely poem speaks to my condition.

Source of Inspiration


I put my life
in God’s hands
but then take it back
again and again.
How patient God is with me.

I live one day at a time
then I don’t
worrying over every little thing.
How sweetly God reminds me
that He is near.

My faith is strong
except when it’s not.
I cry out in fear
suffering needlessly
for God guides and protects me
even when I foolishly forget him.
How patient God is
with his foolish child.
