god who lives forever in my heart

The following is a poem by Rilke that I love. It is about God. It reminds me of the way the prophets feel and think.


Put out my eyes, and I can see you still;
slam my ears to, and I can hear you yet;
and without any feet can go to you;
and tongueless, I can conjure you at will.
Break off my arms, I shall take hold of you
and grasp you with my heart as with a hand;
arrest my heart, my brain will beat as true;
and if you set this brain of mine afire,
upon my blood I then will carry you.

God is so good in any ways. Whenever we find ourselves down, just pray for Him and He will give us strength to face the hardships of life. Remember that God won't give us a problem that we can't handle.
