Oh God, you are boundless.
Does my mind race?.
Impotent in comparison,
Strive in my vanity to peer into your mind.
To define you.
To match you wit for wit,
Mind for mind.
To place my demands upon you
As though you were some heavenly errand boy,
Lion to be tamed with whip and chair.
To explain you,
Like a commodity.
To enclose you safely in the comforts of my understanding.
To bottle you as though to quench my thirst at my convenience.
To dare to proclaim
I walk as your walk,
Speak as you speak,
Live as some example of your boundless love.
I in my egocentric,
Would are to pronounce my self as a picture of who You are.
Unutterably unloving in comparison.
Is this the final place of placing myself into Your place?
Daring to approach You with my cognition?
You have said, "Be still and know that I am God."
I do not even understand my D.O.G.
Let alone my G.O.D.!
Quiet my racing mind, Lord.
Quiet my thoughts till all within me is still.
Help me know that it is enough just to know you.
