The One Decision - Poem by Rick Elpers

We are asked to ask
That the Lord be with us
As our choice to be with Him
Yet the decision is against 
Nature and ego
Tearing the heart and often
Family and friends that repel our
Longing to know the God 
Of everyone, whereas it can only 
Benefit broken lives
Broken hearts
And broken dreams
So we struggle hopeful, faithful
Alone in a world of derision
Set against the one 
Who offers true comfort and
Peace that no human 
Can create, only with time 
Can we  hold on 
And wait until He is ready  
For us to be ready 
Not aware of the result
Nor the cause of such a plan 
Can we ever fully overcome.
So at mercy do we cry 
Against the tumult of the world
And it's hold on our nature
Oh Lord please help us
Either of blessings that we hope for
Or total abstinence of them 
For only you know 
that which brings us
Your peace and contentment 
To our hearts and will ultimately
 Give us more than 
We hope for or deserve
