A PRAYER FOR CHANGE

You placed your love
Within my aching heart
And by your spirits touch
I felt your soft caress

Undeserving as I was
You saw a spark
Deep inside, and you
Ignited it to life

You increased my faith as
I felt the quickening of
Your spirit as my
Happiness began to shine

Being pushed forward by
The many joyful tears which
At once fell from my eyes

I never thought myself
To be deserving of having
Anyone sharing their love
With me

I thought I was just
another worthless soul
Who from his sins would
Never be set free

Yet your Invisible hand
Embraced me, lifting me
From the darkness which
Daily colored my world

And your shimmering light
Shared its unfathomable
Radiance allowing one once
Lost to become one of your
Pearls

I felt the sinful scars
As they dropped from my
Body as your spiritual
Healing now began

Lord, you offer us

a foretaste of heaven

as we stumble through this world.

Let us taste its sweetness today

as we walk

side by side with you. –Martha L Shaw

The Search

August 12, 2015

Looking for a hallelujah,

At first so hard to find.

I found it when I looked inside

My heart and not my mind.
