A Chat With The Lord - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord
I tell Him just what has been bothering me
I know He understands and He will see

Just what I need to do to turn it all around
A visit with God is the best way I have found
Just out in nature where I can feel
What’s important to me and what is real

“What can I do, Lord” I ask, “to fill the need? ”
And He knows just how to plant a seed
Of truth and peace and what I need to do
And you know, my friend, it will work for you

Just sit yourself down or take a walk
Get all ready for a nice little talk
So when you’re feeling sad and bored
Set aside time and have a chat with the Lord!

    This poem is truly a Blessing to read and the reality is insurmountable. I often sit and chat with the Lord and my body rests, my feelings are soothed. It's that precious time received when one takes time to be absorbed in a beautiful spiritual flow. Amazing poem Marilyn..... (Report)Reply

    Wonderful advice and a great poem. If all the people in the world would do this every day, there would be no wars, no poverty, no robberies, no murder, no sin of any kind and the world would be translated like the City of Enoch! (Report)Reply

    Those who are closer to God, chat with him particularly when they find no way out of a problem and the problem is resolved in an instant. Such is the beauty of divine intervention. (Report)Reply

    I am sure now, if I get bored
    where to find peace and where to find lord
    he would be busy with a poet's work
    reading her poems through, dawn to dusk
    and bless her with more time
    so she can write her magical rhyme....

    god bless u, this is agin a heart stealer....

    A wonderful poem Madam. This goes into my favourite list. But this kind of mind set to feel The God, is not easy to get. Maturity of thought, humility and virtues only lead us to that level. If u have time u may please try my poem 1+1=1. My poem may seem to be a continuation of yours. (Report)Reply
