Poem: “Here I am, Lord, ready”

Here I am, Lord, ready

to listen, ready
to pray,
ready to watch You
and be amazed,
ready to thank You
and give You praise.

    Mary Helen-Many thanks for this wisdom. I find way too often that when I say “here I am Lord,” what I really mean is “Here’s abouit half of me Lord, but not all of me.” I guess that is what trying better to get to heaven is about-Here I am Lord, all of me.

    • God bless you, Guy! I know the feeling. May God help us to get ever closer to Him in Christ.
