In the calm, still of the night, He waits for me.....

But not to the element of surprise.

His intent is to protect me

from harm and danger, both seen and unseen.

But I am oblivious to His outreached hand,

so alone I continue to stand.

Naked to the brutal assaults of the world,

like a new born baby, ignorant to knowledge.

He waits for me,

Longing for me to call out to Him,

not only when I've fallen down

with no strength to get up on my own

but when I'm taking a ride on cloud nine

and feel like I'm floating in the sky.

He waits for my in a quiet place,

and welcomes me into His home.

Not Good Enough

What do you do,
when you're not good enough,
Your patience goes unnoticed,
you're not appreciated and
taken for granted?
You are never forgiven, respected
or appeased.
You are merely the object of negative
attention, put downs, reminded of
your failures and shortcomings.
Never to be desired, pleasing, protected
or loved.
Where do you go, when the gravel
beneath your feet begins to slip
and the pathway become cloudy,
foggy and gray.
What words can be said?
What actions can you take?
What sacrifice can you make?
When you're not good enough,
you always fall short and it seems
you'll never meet the expectations.
