Lord, I will not!
I will not settle.
I will not just hear about you, know of you, or even partially know you.
I want to know you!
I will not be a robot,
I want to be your partner.
I want to help those who have turned away as well as those who have never seen,
See you for who you really are.
Not through the glasses of Aristotle’s literature,
Not through scientific theories that are made false just as quickly as they were proven to be truth.
No longer will I live the middle road life of comfort & ignorance,
Content to live in silence & protected from everything that I determine is overwhelming.
Help me continually be willing to sit with you, hear from you, & communicate with you.
May I walk the way you walk Lord, & I thank you that I can pray like this;
That I can talk to you like this, my God.
Where we have become those who want to make change,
Help us have a heart perspective of the way you see injustice.
May we no longer just humanistically look at our world,
But see that you are grieved by the things that grieve our hearts Lord.
Whether it’s headache, a car accident, a storm, a disease epidemic, or a crime.
Your heart feels it, this I know my Lord.
Help me quiet the things that have distracted me in the past,
That I may hear your heartbeat clearer.
I love you Lord.
