A Hope Within

A hope within
A life to live
A soul full

Letting go of that which weakens,
diminishes and eventually dies
Taking hold of that which strengthens,
builds, and breathes new life

That which is given
I receive
That which is taken
I let go

Wisdom taking hold
Revelation pressing down
Waiting for response, movement, affirmation

I respond,
I look up to the mountains from where my help comes
My hands on my eyes
“Let me see, O God!”
My hands on my ears
“Please, let me hear your voice!”
“My heart, Abba, oh this heart,
Keep it Abba. Keep this heart close to you all of my days.
Let me always be close to you.
Let me know You
and let me comprehend your ways.”

  1. Your words describe this new season of life for me. They are beautiful. Thank you.
    Letting go of that which weakens,
