As a child

As a child,
dependent upon You
to protect and carry me until the morning
as a child, I depend on Your Love
to satisfy all of my needs,
You take hold of my weak hand and lead
me through the rough roads
gently You pull my hand away
from the roads that lead to perdition
You lead me, and in submission i follow
Knowing You mean my Good
Knowing i can trust You
not to abandon
i rest my soul in You
as a child rests against the Heart
of a parent
confident that i may lean as long
until the fears are assuaged
secure that You will not hurry me
away for someone important
as a child Yours is the Heart
i set my affections upon
Yours is the heart my weak heart
takes shelter in
You feed me
clothe me
shelter me
You are my Refuge
the longings for my struggling
Holiness is Your House
Heaven is Your Throne
The earth Your footstool
You are my Father,
as a child daily i need You
as a child daily You fill me
with Your Presence
Blowing kisses to Heaven
is the child that loves and longs
to Be with her Father.

“lo, I Am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
(Matthew 28:20)
