I am yours…
am I doing as you will?
Am I tender to your Spirit?
Am I speaking the words you’d desire me to speak-
to those you desire for me to speak it?
Am I writing the words you’d have me to write, to share? Do I dare?
Am I praying enough?
Am I renewing my mind in your Word and Holiness enough to make a difference; even to sustain my faith in this dried up corner of your world?
Am I awake
to the possibilities you orchestrate,
or am I blind, deaf and mute?
Am I distracted by the circumstances surrounding my life?
Am I drowning in a sea of selfishness and sin that I refuse to surrender,
that I cleave to like dust?
Lord, is there Love in me, today?
Yes, but there must be, for have you not entered me,
made me a dwelling place, your home in my heart?
Or have I left you standing at the door,
knocking, ever knocking-
Have I shunned my only hope?
Lord, you alone satisfy-
Why would I,
having tasted your goodness,
seek fruit in orchards of destruction?
Can fruit of the vine abide
apart from it’s life source?
apart from you.
For in you I live and move and have my being-
satisfied forever in your presence alone,
Forever and Ever, Amen.
