I Couldn’t Get Past Mah Tovu

I couldn’t get past Mah Tovu in this mornings prayers,
this is what came instead; 

Asking to be more vulnerable
I hear Your sound

It’s calling me to be more humble
and alive in ways never known before

I ache to be here for You
|knowing Your love has always been

Here I am Hashem
ready the next steps

Don’t be too hard on me
let me take one step at a time

In love with You
My faith grows

I cannot see You
I feel You

Tears abound

About Todd Greenberg

A Jew by birth, a seeker for 60 years. Having realized that all my previous studies and searching brought me back to Judaism as the foundation for my Spiritual practice and my connection to Hashem. Life's love and all that has been challenged in me has been inspirational over the last year to write poetry. Thank you for the opportunity to share what is in my heart and mind.
