The architecture of my life
Is one designed by Him,
The joy I feel in His design
Has filled me to the brim.
Inside my heart is altered
Though it's still incomplete,
And yet I see the change in me
And I will not retreat.
Fear's been replaced by His love,
A peace that comforts me,
A shelter built within His arms
To which I often flee.
New tenderness for others,
Compassion for the lost,
A patience that I find in Him
Which I cannot exhaust.
I find I can show mercy,
For I His grace have known,
How can I criticize their wrongs
When He's erased my own?
God's given me new purpose,
Fulfillment deep inside,
When through my life He's others touched,
My soul is satisfied.
I welcome His attentions,
His work in my behalf,
I want His handiwork displayed
Signed with His autograph.
So help me, Lord, to trust You
As You reshape inside,
To make within my heart Your home,
A place You can reside.

These lines: "I find I can show mercy, For I His grace have known, How can I criticize their wrongs When He's erased my own?" bring tears to my eyes. Have you had any of your poems set to music for hymn-singing? I think you could. I can see how this came to mind when you read my "Blueprints."
