This poem was included in the April, 2011 display "Lenten Expressions" produced by First United Methodist Church of Winter Park
By who I am and who I am not.
By what I do and what I don’t.
And then I wonder - is God frustrated, too?
Does He hope for what He hasn’t seen in me?
Is He waiting for me? Patiently. Tryingly.
Yoda says: "Do or do not, there is no try."
I know "All things are possible to him who believes,"
And to Him who believes in me?
What difference is He calling me to make?
To Pray? To Do?
Everywhere I go I have an impact -
Never is it neutral.
So use me, God!
I want to be the change -
And I’ll try to be patient with You -
or do - too.
