Surrender / Poem

Chaos inside my heart

The usual storm of life

Trying to see past the confusion

Nothing ever lasts.

But I don’t have to try

When You are on the move

You’re surrounding me, cleaning cobwebs

It’s You I will choose.

There’s nothing I can do on my own

Nothing I have to prove

You’re moving mountains in my heart

Filling in the truth.

You don’t need me to be better

You just ask that I trust

All my life I surrender

Become the fullness of my heart.

I’ve been looking through my old poetry/song writing notebooks and found this one. I wrote this poem on the 4th of May 2018, which is scarily long ago considering I can remember very clearly writing it, so much that it seems like yesterday. At the time I thought this poem was too personal to put on my blog, but reading it back, it’s not even that bad. (Poor Sarah though, feeling like she had chaos inside her heart. Nasty. No one wants that. But that is no longer.)

Happy Sunday!
