real, authentic – v3

real, authentic
Speak to God honestly
not some mindless pablum
our words to God
from our heart

soulless words won’t cut it
God wants the unvarnished truth
Speak to God
out in the open
Speak to God truth

words raw,
as real as they get
come to God angry, excited
share with God
all of your life.
