Why do I get discouraged

When I love Him so?

It’s because my eyes stray from His face

For just an hour or so.

Why do I often fret

When He loves me so?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   It’s because my footsteps stray from His

For just a mile or so.

” Oh, Lord, when I ignore,

Whenever I forget—

Lift up mine eyes, guide  back my steps.

Forgive me. Love me. And forget.”

— Gayle Harris —

This poem was taken from my moms little book of poems.
