Thank You for the Sunset by Jaye Lewis

Hello friends,

Every once and awhile, I share a poem with you, that I have written. I would like to share more, because each poem illustrates my relationship with God. He is our Father, after all, and He listens to our prayers. While He doesn't grant our every wish, He loves our prayers. He loves to hear from us, because the desires of our hearts are music to God's ears.

Thank You for the Sunset by Jaye Lewis

Thank You, God, for the sunset
And for the end of day;
When the rosy sky above me
Simply takes my breath away.

Thank You for the mountains
Which fill my every view;
Reminding me of the joy I feel,
When I spend the day with You.

Thank You, God, for the grace You give
Which fills me with delight;
From the early morning sunrise,
And through the darkest night.

Forgive me, Lord, for my faithless heart,
When my soul is filled with grief,
When my body simply fails me
And I pray for swift relief.

It’s hard to face the daylight,
When a soul is wracked with pain.
Yet I cannot resist Your love
So I return again.

Lord, I am blessed with children
And a husband filled with grace.
I can see the love they feel for me,
When I look upon each face.

I wonder why the loneliness
As I struggle through each day?
I pray that You will come to me
And take my pain away.

These are the questions that I have
As I talk to You within;
Yet I am grateful for Your love
Which forgives my every sin.

I pray for those who read this,
For I know their struggle too.
May they be blessed with sweet desire
To spend the day with You.
