I’ve been pondering the idea of this give and take
between me and God.
It seems all one way.
He giving and me taking
He beckoning and me listening,
deaf-like for his call.
Is this give and take between me and God
something where I must learn
to give God more of me?
Or, must I simply learn to be quiet,
and listen with my heart?
