compute at that speed....
OK. They didn't need to tell you,
you already knew.
Hmmm. I get your drift,
and I reluctantly concede,
that attempting to point score against an omniscient God,
is a game I am unlikely to win!
Though the fact that you already know the outcome,
means that it is not exactly a level playing field....
What is this?
Well that is hardly fair, is it?
You have just been waiting for me to catch up...
You want me to be KIND?
Isn't that just a tincey wincey bit soppy?
Can't we leave that to the gushers?
OK, maybe gushers isn't the most diplomatic choice of words,
..and I agree compassion doesn't have to be in tidal waves,
more of an emotional response to a tug of the heart.
Yes, I have a heart,
you made me with one, remember?
Hmmm, you are just checking it is working?
You are so kind....
You know, God, as I am sat here chatting to you,
and being rather more honest about myself than I would normally dare to be,
I feel as if I am being changed,
dare I say it transformed,
by your love.
I am starting to understand that this is what you want me to be.
To be like you.
Not harsh and critical,
but gentle and understanding.
Not rushing in, and devastating with a brutal assessment,
but gently letting me see how things could be,
and encouraging me.
This is how you want me to be towards others,
so that they can see you,
living in me.
Thank you that you forgive me,
help me to forgive others too.
