Perfecter

Sometimes I’ve been ungrateful,

less than grace-full; I’ve sat

in selfishness, stirred discontentment,

and I often find I’m stuck by my own

indignation.  Sometimes I’m ruled

by fear of what the world can do

to me; I can be petty, jealous,

and childish.  I’ve tasted bitterness,

held it on my tongue, rolled it round,

and spit it forth in words

I can never take back.  

But….I am forgiven —sinner 

in flesh, but clean in spirit;

wild child of God, loved

as you are loved —  in all our 

humanness — amid the beauty

and the bruises, in all weaknesses.

We are called to surrender, fall

into His arms, rest in the protection

of the Perfecter of love.
