Heaven's Gates 4-18-21


"Thy Will be done" is how I pray
but how do I start out my day?

Does God come first or is it rare
that I reach first to Him in prayer?

Alarm clock rings.  I've got to run.
It's long before the rising sun.

The world awaits as Heaven parts,
but I'm on time as 'chemo' starts.

Questions many, but answers few.
And prayer to God is overdue.

Again, again, I sin, I sin.
I've failed to do God's will again.

My best is never good enough
while grace forgives my selfish stuff.

I recommit myself each day
to live according to His way.

It's sobering to see life's end.
I miss family, miss my friends.

My best friend though?  Christ still awaits,
so patiently at Heaven's gates.
