Who is your God?

Recent discussions between friends and family have seemed to bring this question to light. Who is God? and what is it exactly that he expects of me. Oh boy...I wish that I were the expert on this subject. If I had God's agenda for my life in an easy to read manuscript, things would undoubtedly be much easier. I don't have a manual, I do have His word. I don't have the answers, but I do have the guidance of His spirit(when I choose to listen) I am far from perfect, and find myself doubting his grace and mercy on more occassions than I care to admit. No, I am certainly not the "model' christian...but I am loved anyway. Isn't that the epithany of grace?
I once passed an underpass with the words, "Who is your God?" painted in an array of bright colors. After much thought and consideration....these are my thoughts....

Who is your God?

You say you believe...
in a God you can't see...
but I long to ask...
Is that only God me?
Or maybe you worship...
that God they call fear...
Walking in doubt..
wishing I would appear...
and take all your troubles...
and make the day shine...
then things would be perfect...
because you are mine.
But life is not easy...
and the rain keeps on falling...
and though you can't see me...
I still hear you calling.
I see every tear...
and I hear every prayer...
I feel every trial...
and I know every care.
Who is your God?
you must choose on this day...
you must tread your own journey...
you must find your own way.
Maybe your God...
is the cares of this life...
every day spent in worry...
every night spent in strife.
The baby is sick...
and your money is low...
the bills are all late...
You have nowhere to go...
God seems too far...
when things seem so wrong..
And though you are weak..
that is when He is strong...
Who is your God?
you must choose on this day..
you must tread your own journey..
you must find your own way.
I sit and I question...
on days like today...
why life is so hard...
how I wish I could pray..
But I find myself empty...
I find my soul still...
I stop for a moment...
Just to ask,"what's your will"?
The problems keep coming..
Oh Lord it's not fair!
The pain in my heart...
is just too hard to bear...
But when it seems darkest...
and I can't find your light...
I know that your with me...
You will make the wrongs right..
I don't know the whys...
for I can't see your ways...
But I know You are Lord...
and I will seek your face.
Who is your God?
You must choose on this day...
You must tread your own journey...
You must find your own way...
You are Lord in my heartbreak..
And Lord in my fears...
You are Lord in my laughter..
And Lord in my tears..
You are Lord on this journey...
Wherever it leads...
You are Lord of my life...
You will meet all my needs.
You ask me for faith..
So I choose on this day..
To give you my burdens...
please take them away!
As I walk on this journey...
as I do what I must...
I will know that I'm loved...
I will give you my trust.

John 6:68 But Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
