Prepared I Come - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Whatever it is from You that I need...
Immerse me with it!
Surround me and I will totally submerge.

I am more ready than ever,
To receive Your direction and command.
I no longer demand to be heard...
With tempting self righteousness,
Served from a shallow ego.
And blurred by mental unrest.

Now that I know in silence You speak to me!
Each time I profess my devotion.

Whatever it is I need to do,
To keep us in sync!
God just let me know.

In devotion,
This motion of life I have flows.
And prepared I come...
To benefit from Your teachings.
Reaching deep inside me,
I touch more to uncover
And surface with that which I've learned.

    To love something beyond the benefit of limitation, and I do believe there is a Higher Power...affords one who has this devotion, a sense of release and satisfaction. Isn't that why we remain faithful in prayer? There has to be 'something' OUT THERE listening and reacting. Earth is just a speck of dust in the eternal vastness of the Universe. I refuse to believe we are accidents of Creation! (Report)Reply

    Love is a too way thing.... as much as you feel you have dominated it will not flow if you hand over all.... a pendulum swinging too and fro.
