Funny...Hmmm...Let's see...

Fumbling
Unrehearsed
Never to be used again
Not a first choice of
Your action or your voice

Fumbling over a Lilly...feeling a bit silly
Unrehearsed...I rose from the floor
Never to do be used again...I walked away laughing within
Not a first choice of...hmmmm...
Your action or your voice...I was humbled a whole lot more...

Fumbling in my thoughts
Unrehearsed...I was taught
Never to be used again...
Not a first choice of
Your action or your voice...I rested that life is better without sin

Funny how the things in life
Have a way of molding our character
If we let the unrehearsed ways of living
Bring out the best during the time after

It is in these moments
Our character is tested
In a response of ..."Thank you Lord"
"You kept me from pride and I am glad I am alive"
then I fumbled to my chair and rested

This is a powerful piece. I could feel the MC's pain as I read and it gave me some flashbacks of a time when I was hurting deeply. This line was especially powerful for me--Never to do be used again I think many of us understand what it feels like to be used. Instead of the bad being used now I'm offering myself to God with a hearty Here I am Lord use me. I could sense that maybe that was what your MC was searching for too.
