A Talk With God

*Pastor’s Note: Continuing to showcase some of my favorite contemporary Christian poets, this week I want to highlight a Christian Sister whom I have known since I first started doing online ministry way back in the 1990s, Carrie Kinyon.

Sister Carrie has her own website and you can find the Home link below. She has been writing poetry AND songs for as long as I have known her and she has led me to many wonderful Christian poets, sadly some no longer with us, and yet happily with the Lord! I pray you will blessed, inspired and encouraged! As always, Glory to God for all of the creative gifts He gives so bountifully. God Bless!

ck talk with God

Father in heaven it’s been such a time
Since I sat down and wrote you a line.
It’s my special way of talking with you
Telling you about the things I do.

I know it’s not needed you already know
Everything I do, every place I go.
The sins I commit, the good that I do
But still, I enjoy my talks with you.

Lord give me strength to cope with each day
The wisdom to know when I sin, I pay.
Keep me on my toes, keep my mind alert
Forbid that I ever cause anyone hurt.

Fill me with love for all you’ve created
Accept me now, though I come belated.
Give me the ability to think for myself
And thank you Father, for all your help.
