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

Wholly yours

Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his (Psalm 100:3; NIV).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

God will redeem me from the world of the dead; he will surely take me to himself (Psalm 49:15; NIV).

 

Lord,
I want to be wholly yours
But so much holds me back –

My ignorance and weakness,
Flaws, forgetfulness,
And sinful nature.

I do my best each day,
Yet always fail.

But at death
I’ll be absorbed
Into your Being,

And then I will be wholly yours,
At last.
