Memories

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
