I believe that life is given us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower-the Light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence. -Helen Keller –
Abba, there are times when I grow weary
Of seeking to understand and feeling misunderstood
Of loving without being loved
Of knowing without being known.
But I push ever forward God
Because I know of no other response
That would honor your love, your mercy,
When I am fully known only by you.
Help me, Abba, help me.
I don’t know for what I plea
But you do, and so I ask
Help me, Abba, show me.
I am but a child, wholly ignorant,
I give you my heart, my life
To do with as you wish
For nothing and no one is so good as you.
