    If it’s in you (the Holy Spirit) that that doesn’t belong has to come out.
    We want talk when we want to talk and not when God wants us to
    Angry and don’t know why,
    Why the tears?
    Why do we cry?

    We haven’t learned but wait …we will.
    Blessings upon blessings;
    Prayer in the place of anger;
    Walking right
    Talking right
    Problem!
    What problem? Now that God is on my side.
    He’s always been there but I wouldn’t let him ride.

    Called Him only when it hurt and didn’t know what to do.
    Once the flesh was satisfied and all was well again;
    I dropped Him off then the rain came in.

    It thundered and it roared, stuck in the storm with no covering.
    Empty inside.
    God was trying to fill the tank but I wouldn’t let him ride.
    Not just around the block but to your final destination,
    But we are on empty because of our procrastination.

    So why the pain?
    And why do we cry?
    Remember, He is trying to fill us up but we won’t let Him ride.

    Once we figure out
    All things work to his time
    And by his holy will
    For the battle is not ours
    But his…
    Sometimes we forget
    And take our problems back
    And try to fix them our self…
    but once you give him your all
    all will be different
    And he will walk with us no matter what
    See....
    He is all things in side my all things

    I hear you on this…
    Nice drop…

    Peace
    Angel

    With the stuff i go through, i certainly needed to read this poem, because i do forget about him a lot, and it's too fortunate that he never leaves me, or any of us. thanks for letting me read this. i think i needed to read this

    He is with us through the long haul, if we just let him in. I loved this creative scribe.

    You know what? This is one of the most creative ways I have heard anyone reference their Walk with GOD. Beautiful, poet. Stay blessed.
