Another attempt

Faith comes by hearing You

yet trust is ever my choice

I give mine to You, LORD

because I have known Your voice

Doubt creeps in

past every hedge of thorn

overwhelming my mind

until my soul’s torn

Faith comes by hearing You

and not by what I’ve seen

it’s more than my experiences

no less what I’ve believed

When come these pricks against my mind

drowning me in tiny fears

I will choose to praise Your name

and give you all of my tears.

I pour out my tears upon Your altar

I pour out my fears at Your feet

I pour out my dreams, desires, and hopes

This is the offering I can bring.

    Glad you liked it! I may not be a poet, but I can put my heart into it. 😛
