So Easily Distracted

Father I feel myself slipping
away from you, but its
slow. I want to be close
to you, as a baby is to its
mothers breast. I need you.
I need to seek nourishment
from you; I need to seek
you with all of my heart
because you tell me"When you
seek you will find me when you
seek me with all of your heart.'

I don't want to be far from you, Father.
Help me to draw near you.
My attention has been caught by
other things, and people. I know you
want me to come to you first, not
second, third, fourth or last.
Why am I as I am? I get so easily distracted--
I turn my head for a minute, like a dog chasing
a bird, and my focus on you is gone.

O Father, I don't want to be this way;
draw my attention, I want to sit at your
feet and listen to you.
Clear my cloudy vision, blow away the
fog. I need to cut to the quick, and run
to your throne.

Father, I need you, and you alone.


July 19,1990
Jeremiah 29:13

Thanks Joan. I was pulling some poems out of the archives. I have not written much this past week! But I am getting ready to.
