Broken Dreams

As children bring their broken dreams
with tears to us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
because He is my friend.

But then, instead of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched the back and cried,
“How could You be so slow”-
“My child,” God said,
“What could I do?
You never would let go.”

About Steven Sawyer

God blessed me with the gift of writing. Mom told me I wrote paragraphs in second grade when others were learning to write sentences. I spent more than three decades in professional writing gigs. For the past eight years I've combined my passion for writing with my love for the Lord. He and I write a Christ-centered, family-friendly blog to glorify God Monday-thru Friday at https://stevensawyer.wordpress.com/. My wife and I have four grown children and two precious granddaughters we co-parent with their mom. I'm a Galatians 2:20 disciple of Christ seeking to allow Christ to live His life in me, through me, and as me.
