Author:

masterpiece-a-poem

Darkness thought it reflected my soul
My life in You was a black hole,
You conceived what my eyes did shield
A life in Your Son where darkness hasn’t lived.

I thought I knew everything
But I was wrong in my way of understanding,
All those mountains you pushed into the ground
All those storms you calmed down,

I know now that you always looked out for me
All those oceans of living water I couldn’t see,
Soaking up from beneath feet
Drenching my soul and wiping me clean,

I surrender to You Lord
I acknowledge you God,
Realizing I’m set apart
I seek your heart,

So breathe in me the life of Your love
Let darkness tremble for what's above,
This pit I dug never did exist
This pain is nothing but an unpleasant mist

I give myself to you
In whole hearted gratitude,
Darkness can’t follow me
Can’t touch what has been set free,

Crush me, Break me, Mold my heart
For I am clay and scrapes of art
Broken and covered in scads of crease
So You could make Your MASTERPIECE.

This is such an excellent poem. I particularly liked:

"Crush me, Break me, Mold my heart

For I am clay and scrapes of art"

I really enjoyed reading it, JayDee
