Gift of the Heart, Words of the Soul

I’m dust
Just a bit of broken humanity
Clothed in sin

An invisible speck
On this spinning globe
Of faces

Broken,
Hurting,
Ensnared in self

Who am I that
You should care?
I have nothing to offer

But words…

Beyond convenience
And expectation
And understanding

Embers of love
Impossible to wrestle
Into speech

Burning for release
Selfless, passionate,
Personal, FREE!

To flow through me…

But I am broken humanity
Misusing Love,
Perverting and abusing it

Oh, Lord!
How long until I see
And know and grasp

And feel
Your perfect Love
At work in me?

This bit of broken humanity
Learning to spill Your Love
Wide and deep and FREE?
