This Life

This life a river, running fast
O’er my heart a, a calloused stone.
Troubles seem like waters, vast
Rushing with the goal to hone.
*
Wake me up, let waters flow.
Move me so that I give in.
Use this river and do show
Where I stray and where I sin.
*
Mold my cold and stony heart
Into the shape you have it be.
I know pain will have a part
For my heart to be set free.
*
Put in me, o God, your heart.
Help me live with love inside.
Help me receive what you impart.
Help me put away my sin.
*
Your design, Jesus, for sure
Is what I want and what I seek.
So I stay, wait, and endure
Knowing waters will recede.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
