To Be Like You


I am reminded

That my ways are not Your ways

My thoughts are not Your thoughts

My feelings are not Your feelings

And yet too

That You are alive & respond in me

So my hurts are Your hurts

So my sorrows are Your sorrows

I am reminded

That You are ultimately in control

Of all that builds and destroys

Of all that choose life over death

And yet too

That being human I have a choice

To honor or to shame You

To love my neighbor or to not

I am reminded

That I am to seek You

With all my heart

With all my soul

Then I begin to be like You.
