When I Talk to God

When I talk to God in Heaven

The distance between us fades

When I speak with the one who made me

The creator affirms... what He's Made

Everything else becomes... just a memory

Every concern... not so bad

Every delay... but a moment

When I talk to my Heavenly Dad

In the time that it takes to look up

He shows me a whole different view

I am there in my father's presence

He's listening... and says "I love you"

The stress of the moment is abated

The need of my soul is supplied

The peace that He offers... He gives me

When I talk to my Dad in the sky

Why do I find myself waiting?

Why do often delay?

Why do I struggle... to go it alone

When I could just stop and pray

All that you need, He will give you

The purpose for living, make clear

When you stop what you're doing

Speak from your heart

The God who made you will hear

The God who loves you is near

He's waiting to listen, don't fear
