It's easy to critique the works of others and get your work critiqued. Just follow the steps below:

1) Post your first piece.

2) You must then critique the work of another member to post another piece yourself.

3) For each critique you give, you earn 1 credit that can be used to post another one of your writings.

4) You can build up credits to be used at another time by giving critiques to others.

Any comments appreciated... please be specific in how this might be improved :) Thanks so much!
I look out the air plane window
at the infinite vastness
of the cloud-filled sky
and feel so small.
I see my untold limitations comparatively,
my capacity for doing so little
in contrast to Your having done all.

I hear echos of my words speaking poison and divisiveness
while Your word spoke and there was life.
There is still life in Your words.
And my thoughts,
the base emotions that lie beneath and then
percolate to the surface.
I wage war with them
willing them to remain unspoken.
Simmering, soothing inner thoughts
of judgement, jealously and justification,
while Your thoughts toward me are Holy.

And the contrast is at once sobering and humbling
yet even here you touch me
with Your amazing grace.
Grace to choose
my view of me
or your view of what I will become, am becoming because of You.
It would be easier to choose my view and
get lost in guilt, remorse and the eventual loss of self-worth.
Eyes on me, poorly focused, heavily weighted
with the sleep of death.

But You gently lift my chin and raise up my eyes
to look into Your own.
You, whose eyes see me as perfect, perfected.
You, whose eyes see me worthy, worthwhile.
You, whoses eyes see me forgiven, not forsaken.

I choose your view.

I look out the air plane window
into the Infinite.
