Poetry Corner

Good morning!!!  Sorry, that I’ve been missing in action.  I’ve been busy, but I’m here.  I pray that everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Today, I want to share a poem and I pray that it’s a blessing to you.  God placed it on my heart and I wanted to share it.

I give my all

by: Nicole L. Ellis

Lord, I rise today

Broken but healed

Discouraged but determined

I stretch my arms out wide and I surrender

I want to give you my all

My heart is in pieces, but I offer the pieces to You

My mind is in shambles, but I offer it to You

My thoughts are not your thoughts, but I want You to have them

My speech needs correction, but I offer each syllable to You

My walk is shaky, but I offer each step to You

Lord, I give you my all

I am nothing without You

I am torn down

I’m frail

I’m bound

With You, I’m free

I’m free to walk in my destiny

I will no longer hold on to my own way

My way leads to death

Your way leads to everlasting life, peace, and rest

Lord, I give You my all

Even after the fall of my sin

I know that with You I can live again

I’m sorry that it took me so long

But today, Dear Lord, I give you my all!

 

When will you choose to give God your all?  When will you choose to surrender your way for God’s way?  When will you decrease in order for Christ to increase in your life? 

I pray that you examine your life and ask God to empty you of your fleshly desires and to fill you up with His will and His way.  God bless!
