contemplative, prayer, at work

Today I woke up, opened the door and walked out
Got to half of the day before I remembered you
You are not real

Today I woke up with a thought of you.
In my mind were questions of who you are
At the end of the day, a friend asked a question if you cared of the matters of men, of the pain millions lived in in our world, if our personal individual stories matters to you,
I asked the same in silence explaining crammed theologies
Are you real?

Today I sat down in the park near the office
My heart was broken was all I could remember, and somehow you came
like a miracle you reassured me of peace and a future synonymous to a dream
You are real.

The alarm went off at 5:00am
I got out of bed at 6:30am
I said a prayer in the shower
I escaped lateness at the bureau by 5 mins
I asked you to forgive me as I powered up my PC
You are real

Today I stop amidst a memorized prayer I learnt from a popular televangelist
In the silence I heard your soothing movement upon my heart
‘I love you Jesus’ my lips ejected
‘I love you’ I said again
The last was more reassuring cause I heard you say it first in the silence
You are more real.

“The cure to an A.D.D prayer life is meditating on the realness and ever present presence of God”

    Beautiful, yes indeed He is real, in every moment of every day, whether we ask Him in or not, but He really really loves it when we invite Him in…..
