This is my book of poetry that I hope to eventually publish with photos.
|Lord, I am struggling with my distance
With my choices and my mediocre walk.
I know that You are there calling to me
And that You have so much more for me
So why am I not pressing in?
Yesterday You told me that You know everything
There is nothing hidden from You
And that, despite my darkness, You love me still
I’ve known this to be true
Yet there is something in me that fights
Tugging me toward the safer path of life
The path of good enough and mediocre and just okay
You call me to more than what I’ve settled for
“At the Cross You beckon me,
Draw me gently to my knees,
And I am lost for words
So lost in love
I’m Sweetly broken, wholly surrender.”
More, Lord, is what I want
And I am weary of being hedged and silent and alone
Take me to the Cross, Beloved, draw me gently to my knees
Cover me with Your wings and shelter me
Give me a place to heal, a place to grow, a place to renew
Grant me rest and peace and joy
Revive me and restore me and bring me back to You
Bring me back to the place where I can wholly surrender
And fall in love with You again.
"How you turned my world, you precious thing!
You starve and near exhaust me...
Everything I've done, I've done for you!
I move the stars for no one!"
If you are wondering who I am, then you haven't looked closely enough...
