What can I do for you today?
Is there something that You wanted me to say? Somewhere to go?
Just name the place.
Is there someone
Who needs to feel your love right now?
Is there someone who needs to know
That You are there, right now?
It’s me again, Your daughter,
Your girl, and Your sweet friend.
I’m checking in again,
To see what You wanted to begin,
And what needs to come to an end.
I was wondering if there is anything
In me, that You wanted to change.
I wanted to check with You,
I’m looking up at Your stars,
Yeah, the ones You made.
I don’t have to search far,
To see what You’ve been doing.
I don’t have to fear what will be,
Cause I know that You
Are always here with me.
And I can hold Your hand
And go wherever You lead
And I’ll go anywhere,
Knowing You will never leave.
You will be with me.
I just want to say
That I am thankful.
And I just want to say
That You are faithful.
How could I ever be afraid?
How could I ever turn away?
How could I ever fear or doubt?
Even when I let go of faith,
You kept holding on.
You were there to show me,
That even when I’m weak
You are strong.
Even when I doubt,
You stay true,
Even when I try to hide,
You find me there, and You are always there
Listening and loving me,
Through every whispered prayer.
It’s been a few years now,
Since I first said “yes”
And You offered me Your hand.
You promised me that You had plans,
And You said that You would go beyond
Every hope and dream,
More than I could ask or think,
And all I really had to do
Was come and follow You.
You did it all for me,
So I could say “I do, I am, I will.
My life is yours to fill.”
All I am, all I have,
It isn’t much, without Your touch.
And once again I open up my heart, my hands,
my mind, my plans,
And I look up to say “I still do,
I still am, I still will.”

One thought on “Hello God…”
I love this and can relate. I walk around sometimes talking to God and ask Him what He would like to say to me today or what can I do for Him.
I use to worry about different things and how my child with this disability will make it in the world without me, …until God showed me. He has already gone before us and knows what will happen and what is best for us. We just need to put our trust in Him, daily, in all areas of our life. I see the sad things happening around the world today but knowing God has already gone before us, we can rest in Him.
Thank you Sarah for trusting God and being obedient to this need. Your are such a blessing and know the frustration us Moms go through with our special needs children.
