A Contrite Spirit

Curb our tongues from speaking
words that can pollute,
replace those words with others
that only bear good fruit!

Turn us inside out Lord
and upside down too,
change every single motive
that won't comply to you.

Shake all that isn't rooted
and grounded in Your word,
remove each thought and mindset
we've erroneously heard!

We offer You imperfect
clay vessels Lord to fill,
with spiritual enlightenment
prepared to do Your will.

Sacrifice You do not seek,
neither promises or vows...
it's a contrite, humble spirit
You require of us now! (c)

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
