I Portray Him

God is so kind and loving.
I paint Him cruel and heartless.
He is so patient and understanding.
I portray Him impatient and thoughtless.
He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.
I betray and unfairly help to create them.
Protective and selfless to sacrifice His life.
Destructive and selfish, I sacrifice Him.
Jesus is the greatest friend we will ever have.
I will only continue to be our worst enemy.
He is someone we can always count on.
How I pray that could be found in me.
But I am human and sinful,
Full of lust and selfish desires.
Please place your trust and faith in Him.
Save us both from the fires.
