Tell Me When Lord

Tell Me When Lord

A Poem by Erik Daniel
"

This is a prayer I had the other day when I was searching for guidance.

"
Tell me when Lord
Tell me to go and I will go
Tell me to stay and I will stay
Point me in the right direction and I will travel that way

I will walk by faith
I put my trust in you
On my own understanding I no longer lean
For now I serve you

I will serve you no matter what
Daily I will pick up my cross
I will go where you lead me
I will lead lost souls to safety

I will let go of whatever I have to
Even my life
For I count it all as loss
If it is not bringing glory to your name

For living is Christ
And dying is gain
I pray you will not take me soon
For there are still people who have not heard your name

Your poetry about the Lord are very open and lovely. Obeying God is never an option but a responsibility or debt to repay. Fantastic read you are an amazing poet:)

Wow. Thank you so much! Right back at you!
We can only live a fulfilled life through God's guidance.....Chase after God and every other thing you need will just flow naturally into your life....and just like the disciples in the bible,it is our duty to spread His word to people,ready to risk it all and facing trials from being a christian is just part of it....this is a really nice poem...
