Nourishing Words


Just when I think the feelings are gone

Something is said that brings it all back.

Wishing and hoping one day I’ll be healed

Not needing anyone’s blessing but Yours.

Help me forgive. Help me forget. Help me move on and

Have no regrets. Unlock the mystery. Unleash the gift.

As I put my hand to Your plow, I must never look back.

I cannot serve two masters. Help me choose You.

Fill my heart with love. Fill my mind with loving thoughts.

Whisper to me often that I still have much to learn.

As the world continues to spin, remind me that three things remain –

Faith – Hope – Love.

The greatest of these is love.

Do not allow bitterness to find root in my heart.

Do not allow my ego to battle Your will.

Neither in me or for me.

What a much better place this world would be

If Your children had enough faith to share hope

And, at the end of the day, to always choose love.
