I Now Surrender


You have called me thrice;
Yes, Lord, I thoroughly grasp what You have justly declared;
And now it is the time You veil Your holiness and divine justice;
The time for Your servant to offer love,
Long suffering, patience, compassion, and trust,
All attributes belonging to the Divine, Whom I solemnly desire to imitate,

    One day while meditating on Him, on His love for all of us, I realize that most people don't realize our Blessed Lord Jesus is the most sensitive and very real; so I asked Him for the grace to tell the whole world how I love Him most passionately and romantically, and I offered myself as a living sacrifice for this work, I offer myself to be His victim soul who was willing to be crushed for loving Him. And boy, I was crushed, big time by a girl called Madeleine. I knew coming into this forum, for I have Davidian weakness, so I am very vulnerable at soft feelings and admiration, but I tried to back out of the deal with God three times, three times He gently called me back, not forcing, simply asking me to do this work. My feelings are mine but poems are His, not my credit.

    The third line is kind of hard to understand; it means he withdrew all His majesty for me to describe Him in human terms, in little things so human hearts can relate to and be softened.

    You are all in my prayers, pray for me please, to avert all devilish things. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
