Five Minute Friday: Simplify

Results

Gentle Reader,

Heavy, wet snow falling from the gray sky all day. Grateful for my cozy home.

Kate says: simplify.

Go.

Simplify my view of self
Simplify my view of others
Simplify, cleanse my heart
Simplify, clean my mind
Simplify, open my ears

God, break me from the dumb
Keep me from raising thumb
To nose to dismiss the wise
Those who possess the clearer eyes
To see the things that I cannot
The treasured sins that stink with rot
Open my ears to hear their caution
Pull the plug on pride I’m awash in
Dear Jesus, cut me off at the knees
If such pain is what it takes to please
You – Your fame, Your Name, Your flame
Eject me from unholy game
Humble me, give me pie to eat
Then hold me down upon this seat
Close to You, hearing You, feeling You
Heart change, no analytical review
Take from me this soul of stone
Kick me off of golden throne
Lord, You know that I’m so weak
Prone to tears, fits of pique
Throwing things and blinding rage
Lacking firm ability to gauge
When it’s true and when it’s deception
Too wrapped up in preconception
God, use the the stuff that does annoy
The foolishness in me, to destroy

Stop.

  1. Then hold me down upon this seat
    Close to You, hearing You, feeling You
    Heart change, no analytical review
    Take from me this soul of stone
    Yes, me too, please! And thank you!
    Beautiful… Lisa

  2. Marie, I wanted to share a part that just held me…you know…that…me too kind of thing. And really it was all amazing. You are so gifted. I am humbled by you. Truly. God definitely uses your words to touch hearts in those places that need to be reached.

    Blessings for the week ahead. – Kelly

  3. Marie, this is beautiful, so filled with truth. I need to be constantly in that place of humble yieldedness before our Father. Can’t say much more because you’ve already said it so perfectly, friend. I’m contemplating your words.
