Random Poem:

A Ryhme to The Architect

Oh Architect who is so wise and who so graciously made me,
I come to you on hands and knees to sing to Thee.
Please oh please oh Architect come to meet with me,
for my heart needs reopening and only you have the key.
Hallowed be your name,
your Kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I come to you as a beggar for forgiveness,
knowing that your my father full of love and kindness.
Build me up higher than the mountain tops,
construct my heart so I may be what I Ought.
For it is you that I long for and it is you that I seek,
and I hope that forever you'll carry me.
There are times where I am barely hanging on
to the rope that we call life that seems to go on and on.
I know this rope is short and that the prize is very long,
please help me to see eternal Oh how I sing you this song!
Oh Architect is this a part of your Plan,
to make me and change me into this Man?
Your Son how he was so perfect and so humble
sometimes the weight of that makes my heart tear and crumble.
How can I be like this Man I am not perfect?!
Im a sinner so quite the opposite.
So build me into this Man,
and mold me like no one else can.
For it is this that I long for and it is this that I seek,
to be more like Jesus so humble and meek.
Oh God you are sovereign and all that you plan,
can not be frustrated or even cramped.
So why do I worry and why do I doubt,
like a man blown around and tossed about?
For you are the grand Architect who sees
and speaks everything, including me, to be.
You make it and shape it new and old,
to interwork in your plan foretold.
I love that about you that there is no surprise,
you know all already what lies inside,
my head and my heart. Those are yours for the taking,
to do all that you do in my story you're making.
You are the Architect, oh Architect,
and I am the simple and yet,
you still continue to love me and nurture my soul,
your love for me can never be fully told.
I love you God, three in one,
Oh Father, Spirit, Son!
My life is nothing with out your supreme guidance,
Id just be rebellious and defiant.
So God I thank you for what you do and who you are.
I pray that you will never be to far!
The last thing that ask from you is,
to lead me out of my temptations.
Deliver me from evil,
if it is truly and only your will.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and glory, Forever and ever.
