Day 11 Poem: I Want to Ask Him

I Want to Ask Him

Here I go again, heart pounding,
tongue twisted, and lips frozen in a line,
women's, men's a child's here and there, voices surrounding.
Could he just give me a hint, a sign?

My mind is blank feeling the stress,
but on the drive here full of questions,
like Do you feel the passion to follow Jesus?
Eyes on menu, but can't make a selection,

Instead I ask about his day,
Do you want more? More, not what the world will give but what God can give?
Again my mind goes blank like a black hole in the milky way.
Do you want to change in Christ, really live?

I want to ask him a question that might strike him as odd,
"Are you a man of God?"

By Annie Laurie Gray

  1. I've always said, 'don't look for Ms. Right. Let God make you into Mr. Righteous, and she'll find you.' It worked for me. My wife is also a poet. She is http://esther-ijustlivehere.blogspot.ca/
