My God


My God comforts me in the morning. He listens to me in the evening and whispers to me during the night. He calms me when I allow it. I ignore him often, but he does not seem to mind. Like an old friend, we pick up where the conversation left off. He normally does most of the listening. Even as he patiently acts the role of the audience, he seems to advise me. I feel a hand resting upon my soul; it grows heavy when I turn the wrong way. A figment of my imagination or a guiding presence, I accept it for what it is. What it might be.

Faith is accepted with your eyes close. I do this now as I step forward and place my trust in his hands.

  7. Just thinking today how I often ignore God and run to many other things as comfort. I guess that is why God sometimes asks us to fast, eh?

    Absolutely beautiful! What a lovely, gentle way of describing your relationship with my Lord.

    I just had to share this one, so calming.

  16. Just as should be OM…one on one. I love this bit ” I feel a hand resting upon my soul; it grows heavy when I turn the wrong way”
    My nana used to say we all know when he speaks,we also know when we choose not to hear,but in all he allows us our will;until he decides the foolishness is enough. 🙂
    I like this side of you I’m learning OM, childlike, innocent and unassuming. I guess that’s what being an artsy human is about, you just do you period!

  17. Amen. Thank you Lord, Father! I love you soooooo!

  18. I like your personal relationship with God. It’s a comfortable one. I think of Him as a universal love in action that alternately prods me or guards me.Faith is a wonderful attribute t o have.
