Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A poem talking about my relationship with God
I could write a verse
or run a mile
I could read your Word
or play games awhile
I could sing a song
Or bake a giant cake
what difference would it make

If you weren't in my life
If you didn't give me life
If I don't live my life for You
Others may not understand
that I put my life in your hands
They might know why
I spend my life serving You

I could write a verse to You
because You understand my very soul
yet if I write for man
they might not understand
that my words are more
than scratches on paper

I could run a race
and win it for myself
but what good would it do
spending my whole life
trying not to die
instead of living for you
for you gave me life

I can read your Word
and learn all I can about you
and never learn all there is to know
or I could play a game
and in the end gain nothing from it
what good is it to save my life in a game,
only to lose my soul

I could sing a song and not mean it,
I could bake a cake for myself
but what good is any of it
If I don't have you
For you are the one who loved me
even in my sin

You are the one who saved me
when I thought I couldn't go on
You are the one who healed me
when I thought all hope was gone
You lifted me up and gave me life
In every single way
and that is why I write to you,
and why I praise your name
