Water into wine

Hello everyone. The work of a poet is never done! I’ve just made some revisions in today’s prayer, and thought some of you might be interested to see the difference changing a word or two can make:

 

Lord,
You are amazing!

You spilled
Your precious blood

So all my sins
Can be transformed,

And turned, instead, 
To love.

Lord,
You are amazing!

I’m yours,
And you are mine.

Now all my sins 
Have turned to love-

Like water 
Into wine.

Prayer

Be mine

They shall be mine, says the Lord of Hosts (Malachi 3:17; ESV).

 

I had a vision
Or a dream
Last night.

It happened
When I closed my eyes
To pray.

Instead of darkness,
I was looking at
A small, closed book.

I couldn’t see
The author’s name,
For it was blurred,

But the title
On the cover
Was quite plain.

In delicate italic script
It read:
Be mine.
