In God's Hands
Ask for what you want out loud.
work for what you need,
need only what you can use,
use only as needed.
Ask with your mouth open,
Fill me oh lord!
exclaim the positive view, unstoppable inspiration,
empowering and protecting me.
Shed what is not needed, holding me back,
tethering me to my fears and doubts,
the comfort and safety of standing pat.
Fill me up lord!
Everyday let thy run over,
Let the waters fill not only me, but through me,
to those under mine...not yet in your sight....or you in theirs.
Positive in self belief,
risen to a height and strength that you move me too!
I have asked for what I want,
I need only to follow your lead, your example,
I will care for each of your children as the were mine,
as I am yours and you have shown.
I lift you up, showing me my own legs you gave me, balanced by my arms out front,
with open hands articulating your warmth, hope and compassion.
My back is now ridged,
My rise complete, in the hand's of god...
