God Is...My Audience

God is...my audience!
If my Father is pleased...
No applause do I need,
He has a way to make that known!
I am shown.
And this alone excites me.

I do not seek any other approval.
Or standing ovations.
With looks of adulation sought.
To appease an ego I need to feed.

My mind is satisfied,
When 'something' inside...
Let's me know,
My Father is right there...
By my side.

And 'if' my Father should get upset...
He does not stop loving me.
Or burden me with regrets.
And teased I am not,
By what is outside of me!
My identity I do not hide.
There is a pride God helps me grow!

If God accepts...
I can endure the dejection that may stun some.
And any rejection directed towards me,
I will take and overcome.

God is...my audience!
And I am very thankful,
He has allowed my performance!
For what it is that is done in His honor!

My favorite lines were And 'if' my Father should get upset... He does not stop loving me. Or burden me with regrets. What true words! ~A Little Blue Bird~
