Take me ..

Take me today ..

My restless heart
Stilled on Your illimitable peace

My tired hands
Held fast and close by Yours

My hidden anger
Resting on Your everlasting justice

Self-condemnation
Blanketed by mercy

My defensive tongue
Made vulnerable in praise

My downcast eyes
Raised up to look in Yours

Seeing
Only
Love ...

Wow ... thanks Lynne. I had quite a bad week and this speaks so much to me.

Yes Lord, me too.

I keep saying I'm going to link to your blog in a post and I will do that soon -- I love this poem especially and want to refer to it on mine.
