I’m like Jonah, only by walking the other way-
Not following the Lord’s direction day by day!
I thought I knew what was best for my mate you see-
But I truly have failed him, now distant from HE.
HE knew best the way HE had wanted me to try-
But I did not want to do HIS plan – I can’t – said I.
It is too hard, too difficult for me to do-
So I’ll do it my way, trying something new.
But my ways have caught up with me so very fast-
I am sorry that my ways not long did they last!
No strength have I gained no compassion or caring-
What has HE planned for this life HE is sparing?
HE chose me to be pathfinder & caregiver to my mate-
But I have resented following, I hope I’m not too late.
Not too late to be more patient & understanding too-
Of my mates feelings & all he is going through.
Teach me now Lord – I’m giving myself to you-
We can’t withstand much more of what we are going through.
I need to accept the way my mate is now-
And daily ask the Lord all the what & how.
Ask HIM to lead me in all I do & say-
For the benefit of both os us – please Spirit help me pray.
