LISTEN TO YOUR FATHER

By Jody R Goode

I took eternity to dream about you
forming every intricate and wondrous detail
before My Hand was ever lifted
to weave you in your mother's womb



As I do with all My beloved
I touched you with special parts of Myself
to bring to your being a most unique creation
With precise and utter care, "you" I joyfully fashioned



To see you as I do, you must set down your mirror
Gazing deeply into My Eyes,
there you'll find the image of perfection
I have created at your inner core



I counted your every day
and have been with you always
in keeping with My oath
to stay at your side every step of the way



So when you think you are alone
tell yourself it is not so
I am forever there with you;
you needn't spend another moment on your own



Even in your deepest sleep,
My Eyes have never strayed
As your nightwatch protector,
your soul I will forever keep



I know your thoughts before they ever cross your mind
I know your words before they ever leave your tongue
I know your ways - when you sit and when you rise
I know you - for I enclose you before and behind



I can tell you everything you wish to know
about life and love for I am the source of both
If you will come and spend those fearful moments with Me
I promise to supply all you need to grow
