My Task

My Task

Claiming God as my own-a practice
   difficult to grasp,
   a real struggle to live,
Or so it is for me.

Even thinking about it,
   causes hesitation,
      a not knowing of how,
A concept that both bewilders and excites –

A question for the heart, yet to be answered –

But in the meantime, let me claim God’s sweet Smile
   as my own, very own.
A Smile I never tire of looking at –
A Smile that holds all the peace and warmth and
   love I could ever want.
A Smile that nourishes my whole being.

– Suchesta Flynn.
