You say "Hello" in the morning,
and sometimes you kiss me good-night.
You come to Me when you want something,
but the rest of the time your in flight.
Every day I sit...
waiting for you to see,
how much I want to be with you,
just you and Me.
I think to Myself, "will you ever slow down...
just long enough to know,
that I am the answer...
to your your dog and pony show.
Your days are full of "whatevers"
and your nights are full of "blah",
don't you see the craziness
of your notorious "hoo-rahs?"
When will you stop building,
houses of straw on sand?
When will you stop running,
to far and distant lands?
What are you looking for,
when you take your eyes off of Me?
There's a God-sized hole in everyone,
that I've created for My glory.
Yet, you continue to yearn for something
that you think I can not fill.
I have abundantly more than you can ask and imagine,
if you would just be quiet and still.
I'm tired of getting you in pieces,
It's your whole heart that I need.
I'm tired of your "lukewarm",
It's hypocritical indeed!
You claim that I am your God,
Father, Son and Spirit in One.
But when I ask you to listen and obey,
you act like a prodigal son.
You say you know Me,
but your lips tell a lie.
When is the last time you sat with Me?
Where does your soul reside?
You mock Me with your notions
when you say, "Oh, but I go to church."
Are you doing me a favor?
Don't you know how much your false pretense hurts?
You run around in circles,
claiming to do My work,
Can you really take My place?
You force your will as if it were My own.
You usurper of the throne!
What is your goodness
if it is all done in vain?
All is lost in translation,
when you're in it for selfish gain.
Do you know the day is coming,
when your house of cards will fall?
There will come a time when you want to be with Me,
but will I know you at all?
You acknowledge Me in passing,
and you promise that tomorrow you will make time.
I believe you have good intentions,
but it's always the same old line.
Don't you know that bonds are made by attachments,
they are emotional to the core.
Intimacy is made by connection,
don't you know I need more?
You can take your religion and shove it,
it's full of man-made traditions galore!
you have traded our relationship
for an imposterous whore!
Trust is made through covenants,
and My promise I have kept.
I have vowed to always love you,
and for your sin I have wept.
Is it too much to ask for your devotion?
I want your whole heart and nothing less.
I desire your full attention always,
not only when your in distress.
I call out to you, but you do not hear My voice
You have wandered so far away.
Isolated and alone,
that is not the way for the creation I have made.
I beg you "Don't go"
Do not walk out that door.
Stay with Me and listen,
I have so much more.
Parables are more than stories.
They were made for spiritual ears to hear,
I will open your mind to understanding
if only would draw near to Me.
Wisdom will come through revelation
as you seek My face,
Your spiritual eyes will open
through our divine embrace.
Abide in Me, My love
and I will abide in you.
No branch can bear fruit by itself
unless it abides in the vine,
so neither can you, My love
unless you abide in Me.
John 15:4 NIV
