My Earnest Plea

Seeking God’s will

by Joanne Troppello

When I look toward the vast sea,

I think about my future

and all that You mean to me.

Lord, I want so much to please You,

in all of my imperfect ways,

and in everything I try to do,

give You glory, honor, and praise.

With my whole life ahead of me,

and all of my days to come,

I want to continue to see,

that Your will does get done.

Sometimes it surely does become hard,

as I live in this confused world,

to exist without getting marred,

when Satan’s tricks at me are hurled.

With all of my heart and soul,

I want to walk in Your perfect will,

always striving toward my goal,

and seeing that Your will I’ll fulfill.
