I had a talk with God,
as I pondered my life's journey
"Dear God," I said, "I have no fear,
if I should die tonight.
I know my soul is saved,
for I have seen the light.
The blessings you've given were many,
some decisions I made were poor.
Still you looked upon me with love
Nothing less, nothing more."
And God asked...
"What more is there than God's love?"
I replied, "Nothing that I know."
He said, "For my love is eternal!"
I agreed, "True, no greater love I've known,
You always walked beside me."
God interjected... "Yes,
just as a true friend should always do."
I continued, "And when I grew weak and tired,
you let me lean on you."
"Dear child," God said,
"I've sent more things your way,
than you could ever want or need.
In return I ask just this,
live your life for me.
For, it's not the roads you travel,
that lead you to my door,
It's the souls that you'll bring with you,
that I put you on this earth for.
Take nothing I've given for granted,
for nothings truly yours to keep.
I only let you borrow them,
until you come home to live with me."
