NaPoWriMo 2015 ~ Please, God

Praise God that He doesn’t need us to be perfect, just willing. Praise Him for taking our broken offerings and using them to accomplish His purpose. 

April 25th, 2015 ~ Please, God

Please, God, I’m just not wise enough.

Please, God, I don’t have the words.

Please, God, I’m lacking in Your love.

Please, God, haven’t You heard?


I’m weak, I’m broken,

I’m a failure.

I’m small, I’m fragile,

I’m not pure.

How can You use me?


Please, God, I’ll only mess it up.

Please, God, I’m just in the way.

Please, God, remove this cup.

Please, God, listen to what I say!


I’m young, I’m sinful,

I’m a wreck.

I’m proud, I’m struggling,

I’m a mess.

What are You doing?


Please, God, if You want me to,

I’ll try,

But will You give me wings to fly?


Please, God, if it’s Your will,

I’ll proceed,

But will You take my hand and lead?


Please, God, if You command,

I’ll obey,

But will You promise to save the day?


No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 

~ Romans 8:37
