A Chat with the Lord

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord
I tell Him just what has been bothering me
I know He understands and He will see

Just what I need to do to turn it all around
A visit with God is the best way I have found
Just out in nature where I can feel
What’s important to me and what is real

“What can I do, Lord” I ask, “to fill the need? ”
And He knows just how to plant a seed
Of truth and peace and what I need to do
And you know, my friend, it will work for you

Just sit yourself down or take a walk
Get all ready for a nice little talk
So when you’re feeling sad and bored
Set aside time and have a chat with the Lord!

    Those who are closer to God, chat with him particularly when they find no way out of a problem and the problem is resolved in an instant. Such is the beauty of divine intervention. (Report) Reply

    ...and that's what I shall do today on this Holy Week Saturday - in the forest or walking around the lake at our cabin. Thanks! (Report) Reply

    I am sure now, if I get bored
    where to find peace and where to find lord
    he would be busy with a poet's work
    reading her poems through, dawn to dusk
    and bless her with more time
    so she can write her magical rhyme....

    god bless u, this is agin a heart stealer.... (Report) Reply

    A wonderful poem Madam. This goes into my favourite list. But this kind of mind set to feel The God, is not easy to get. Maturity of thought, humility and virtues only lead us to that level. If u have time u may please try my poem 1+1=1. My poem may seem to be a continuation of yours. (Report) Reply

    Very well written. I believe things happen for a reason and for some reason, it was intended that I find your work and read this poem. I have chats very often with the Lord because I know he is not judgmental and I can open up to him and find peace. Thank you for a beautiful, meaningful poem. I shall be reading more of your work.

    When I am hurt by boredom's sword,
    I immediately turn to the holy Lord,
    He immediately swoops like a wind
    And sweep away boredom of every kind. (Report) Reply

    I love my God instead of worshiping. Because God created me out of love.Love is the central theme of whole creation.God is a justice for the sinners. God is a lover for the beloved.
    A great piece dear Marilyn.
    Be with God
    Live with God
    Sleep with God. (Report) Reply

And your play-house, too,
