ADD TO MY FAVORITES
And pull my earpiece near;
Then I will tell you how I feel
About the words I hear.
I’m happy to find out about
The good in people’s lives,
The gifts of grace that come from God,
The family that thrives.
I’m bored enough to go to sleep
When there's a business chat
Of deals and products, bottom line.
Ho-hum to all of that.
I’m shamed by those who carelessly
Take Jesus’ name in vain.
It’s bound to break His loving heart
When persons are profane.
I’m angered by the evil plans
Which sinful men may make,
And by the steps of violence
It's their intent to take.
I’m saddened when the news is told
Of sickness or of loss,
And troubled bridges numerous,
Most difficult to cross.
I’m awed by prayers of Christian folk,
Who carry to the throne
Requests from those who have a need
As though they were their own.

Of course, phones do not really speak,
Nor can they hear or feel,
But God hears everything we say,
And He is very real.
