All Of Me

All of me ~††not just my heart
the total sum of me†~††not just a part

in faith†~†every word I utter
words fail me†~ sometimes†I stutter

all of me†~ my†thoughts are†sure
I'm not perfect†~ at times I'm immature

I have†received†~†I freely give
my life~ a privilege to live

all of me†~††purpose for my days
I†give to†God†~††honor and praise

all of me

not just my heart†~††all of me
not just a part ~ the total sum of me

every word I utter†~ in faith
sometimes I stutter†~ words fail me

my†thoughts are†sure†~ all of me
at times I'm†immature†~ I'm not perfect

I freely give†~ I have received
a privilege to live my life

purpose for my days†~ all of me
honor and praise I give to God

all of me

Author's note: There will be times I'm sure, and times I'm uncertain.††At times, my efforts will be†adequate, and at times,†my efforts will be†inadequate.† Through all the times of my life, I owe everything I am and everything I have to God and I am eternally grateful to Him.† All of me, the good, the bad and the ugly, all of me, I give to God.† He takes the good in me and makes me better.† He takes the bad in me and uses it for His purpose.† He takes the ugly in me and turns it into beauty.† He is truly in the business of†performing miracles.† Look what he did for me.† He took my unworthiness and made me worthy, because He loves me.
So†much more He will do for you!!

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
