A Psalm of Susan

O Lord, Yours is the breath that brings forth our first loud cry
and Yours is the breath we leave in the midst of our final dying sigh.
The blood that pulses with every beat of this heart that You've so captured
wears Your signature on every drop, carrying Your breath in perfect measure.

Each hour is written with care by your creative, ageless hand.
Unwavering, you pre-ordain each moment, each step, each day of every man.
Your ink of love embraces me, encircling me on your sketch of life,
drawing me forth, breath by breath, for purposes that are only in Your sight.

My past, the lurking shadow that taunts me with vague memories of pain,
shining moments suppressed, loving embraces long ago forgotten and in vain,
Lord, if who I am is the sum of my parts, then this part I must forgo in calculation,
for the days of yore are nothing more once Your Light has blinded its infatuation.

My future, Lord, my hopes and schemes, and all my broken, scattered dreams,
the striving and the doubting, worries of things I may never even see,
the fearsome future ceases to overwhelm me when I know I'm the apple of Your loving eye.
Led forward by Your Word, Your Spirit, Shepherd's voice spoken, heard, and heeded, go I.

This dawn I rise today, a day You've penned for me, and watched it til the sun did set upon,
Lord, turn my foot toward Your way, turn my ear to what You say, to live what You have drawn.
Each question, each decision, each reaction, each response this needy world asks of me today,
let me meet in the moment, no regrets, no worries, just faith in You for each and every day!
