Beautiful one

Psalm 147:3 (VOICE)
“He binds their wounds,
heals the sorrows of their hearts.”

A fissure
filled with clay
Cleaned, it shows
the narrow, deep crack
extending into your
soul
Small, less significant
scratches
don’t mar the beauty
O, beautiful one
I cannot merely
fill
the faults
I need to
slowly
painfully
patiently
grind a bit
Lovingly
polish
etch away
what seems to be
normal
Take away healthy
fragments
to get to the
source
of the pain

Jesus shows the signs
of Your engraving Continue reading

Yet there is fear Continue reading
