Some days, these snippets, these taught verses
Boost me up and make me smug.
But I step back and see that it is all one–
–One work that I hold to teach and train me–
–Breathed by God, complete to complete me.
I would be whole,
I yearn to be complete,
I ache to be filled by the Spirit of God.
I set aside some sack of penny candies,
the delights that I have sucked and crunched
so often through days.
I grab hold of the balanced tray,
a meal to nourish and correct me.
My sweet tooth, polished;
I feel energy throughout fresh muscles.
Grow me in your Word.
