Sweet Lord, I focus in what is good.
I mediate on your character.
You are loyal to me, You will never fail me.
When my relationships on earth fall
short, leave me wounded. You ALONE will be constant.
You are forever the same.
When my hands fail
When I cannot lift my eyes for shame
You will cup my chin
You will kiss my face
You will raise it heavenward

You are my center, my refrence point.
You are the reason my heart beats
You have pulled me to you.
I cannot fall from your grasp.

Only you would combine a sunset and a snow storm to take my breath away. Thank you Lord for the glimpse of your creativity and love.

I can feel the shadow climbing over my shoulder
My words have been stolen from me
Where is my joy?
I cling to your promise that we are struck down but not destroyed,
That life is at work in you
You whisper to my soul ‘be still’
Lord, I am listening
I will still my tongue and heart to hear your words
I will strain to hear above the fluttering of my soul
You are good, You will return my joy sevenfold
You will increase my household
You will quiet this storm
Help me rememeber that my treasure is in heaven
Lord, you are good. You will not let me fail
Give me wisdom to conquer the mountians that engulf me
Give me sure footing and light my path

{2 Corinthians 4}

Lord, you are my carpenter.
You have taken me and cut me into shape
You have smoothed my rough edges
Gone with the grain
You have brought out my deep color
Richer in hue than I could have imagined
You not only knew my potential before you started but also knew my place within your plans
You have cut away the diseased wood,
The places overtaken by decay
I was once a sappling but you have grown me from your everlasting spring
I have grown strong and tall, limbs ever reaching for you.
You knew when to harvest me, when I was to fulfill your purpose.

Lord, I am devestated.
I have prayed to feel your pain for your children
To gain your passion
Lord, I cannot stop the tears
The deep grief
How selfish is our human race!
That babes would not be given a fighting chance
That nourishment would never once touch their lips before they were taken to your throne room
That they would never feel their mothers breath on their cheek, whispering words of love
How demeaning are we to close our doors
Our ears
Our hearts
That we refuse to be touched by these
Small bundles
Their fingers out stretched, gasping against the pain
Oh lord save us! We are heathens in beautiful robes
We sing and laugh, live and pray
Shutting the heart wrenching images away deep in our minds
Who are we to call ourselves your children?
We who remain immobile but have the ability to save
Forever burn the image of starvation and pain into my spirit so I may not forget your children
Move me to save
Enable me to heal
Open the flood gate Lord
Let me not forget

I surrender fully.
Every piece, every thought, every muscle
I am done fighting, I am throwing away my rebellion
If it does not please you take it from me
Rebuke me
Refine me
Untwist my heart and mind
I will no longer be divided by my sin
Your will be done.

Sweet Lord, tonight I have no words
Your majesty is breathtakingly indescribable
Your magnitude defys every phrase these lips can cry out
Come tuck yourself into me
Abide in and love me
Let me wrap you in my arms and kiss your hand
Let me praise you for your sweet surrender that saved me
I worship you
Your search me and know me
Know my secrets
Know my private shame
And love me still
Your generosity drags me to my knees
Your grace is freeing
In your shadow I will walk
In your law I will abide

Lord, give me clarity

Help me weep when you weep

Let my unfeeling heart turn to heart wrenching compassion

Give me your heart for your people

Grow my spirit a thousand times within me

No longer do I want the spirit of immobility

a heart of  ungracefulness

I want your voice, your hands, you tendons

grafted over mine

I want to be wholly absorbed by your spirit

Blow through me

Break me down according to your will

Leave the pieces that do not belong in your will

I claim your strength in my life

Lord, give me a heart to love
Give me a heart to see
Let me be your hands
Let your grace flow through me
On to her
When I wrap her in my arms
May they be yours
When I comfort her
Let the words be yours
Lay stake to my spirit
Let me be a measure of grace for her

Lord give me grace
I have brought darkness into my life
I opened my mind to works not of you
My spirit has been lashed about
And I am broken and weary

Lord give me redemption
My lips are unclean to worship you
My heart is devasted with in me
I cannot see beyond myself
And all I see is darkness

Lord give me hope
My life has been one of sin
I have closed my eyes to you
I have given my affection to ones undeserving and now I am undone

In your perfect love heal me
In your infinite forgiveness do not turn from me
In your name wash away my sins

little ole me
