I wrap myself in memories
that fail to keep me warm.
I've let go of sundries;
they only bring me harm.
I wish, O Lord, to move on,
but her vision moves with me.
I pray with You I'd be undone,
Your truth to set me free.
Against my will I hold on
to one who is not there.
To be hers, to be one,
to ponder such I cannot dare.
I move on, against my wishes;
a life for me is ahead.
Sew me up with spiritual stitches
through the communion wine and bread.
I will walk with You, my God,
though I feel You not.
Let the Word make me laud
the Lord who cleansed my blot.
You take my sins and toss them away
'cross many oceans and seas.
Grace remembered I will pray
with You building memories.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11-13
“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.” ~ Philippians 3:13-15
