~wash Away My Doubt~ - Poem by Mary Nagy

Dear Lord, I have some questions for which I need to know
the answers have been weighing on my mind, I'm sure it shows.

Are you truly in Heaven? Is there really such a place?
Are you watching my adventures while I'm finding my own space?

I so often have to wonder, do you hear my silent cries?
Who am I to think you love me? Is it all a pack of lies?

When I'm left to sit and ponder all the thoughts I have on you
I can't help search for am I to know what's true?

Do you hear me when I whimper as I lie in bed awake?
Do you see me lose my temper when I've had all I can take?

Is it you that soothes my wounded soul each time I see myself?
Could it be true what is written in the books upon my shelf?

Just wash away my doubt and cleanse me with your truth.
Dear Lord, you've been so silent as I've left behind my youth.

Though life at times seems hectic and I wonder if you're there
I hold on to the thought that there's at least one soul who'll care.

Forgive me when I doubt you and I try to see things clear.
Please Lord, renew my faith in you....just let me know you're here.

    mary...i guess you should look from the other side...first state that there is no God and then work yourself towards an acceptable answer...great poem...the despair comes thru beautifully (Report)Reply

    This is a gorgeous write Mary, lovely words, lovely subject, written with real feeling. A delight to read. If we had all the answers I suppose life would be boring. I know how you feel, but I do believe now I am older, and there is more in this universe and beyond than we will ever get to know.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    We will always have times of doubt; that's why one must renew his/her mind daily with the Word. (Report)Reply

    Mary, I think it's altogether good to ask questions of God. But I think that - rather than leave it there in despair of an answer, as so many do - we take on the responsibility to attempt the answers in ourselves, too...

    Good to see you advancing as ever.
