I found God among the silence of a long afternoon.
He was sitting in the sunshine and humming a little tune.
He said “Seek me when you’re tired and give thanks for what you have.
Seek me when your lonely and seek me when your sad.
My dear child, ” God said to me in the breeze.
“My way is not always an easy way but Grace does not come with ease.
Though you doubt your worth always and try to pick at broken seams
I made you very different and I’ll tell you what this means.
I made you full of Life with a Heart to feel Love and Pain.
I made you to show Mercy even where Mercy’s received in vain.
I made you so that your smile could brighten another’s day.
I gave you the gift of forgiveness to show others along the way.
The path that I’ve made for you is one of Joy and Strife.
With choices that I’ve left you and opportunities in your Life.
I know sometimes you forget me or you think that I’m not there
