Fists Full of Control

"It's only when we give up on what we want (our selfishness) that God can truly come alive in us."
paraphrased from Rebecca St. James

Letting go
of the fists full
of control

I turn to you
in my tears
and beg for your
unending robe
of mercy

Wrap me
in your loving arms
of forgiveness

Cleanse me
of myself
my will
my timing

Your understanding
a gift at the cross
that takes me back
time and time again

After I've run rampant
and on my own
Believing I knew
the right direction

Save me
from my self-will
and bless me
with a heart and mind
content in your timing

My humanness
a constant reminder
of my need
for your infinite mercy
and grace

Coddle me
Rock me
in submission
Change my heart
to be acceptable
to you,
Heavenly Father

Grant me, O Lord, to know what I ought to know, to love what I ought to love, to praise what delights you most, to value what is precious in your sight… -Thomas à Kempis
