He loves me {free}

And You Will Be Clean

My love for Him seems dimmed.
I’ve let dust settle over the place where I usually sit clear-eyed,
ready for Him to come with a fresh word.
I’m avoiding Him, scattered in my thinking,
frittering away precious time on things that matter little.
And so life’s colors have faded a bit.

I know this isn’t real peace, this nothingness creeping in.

Come back. 

He sits in the shade at the water’s edge. Relaxed. Waiting.
His hand skims across the glassy pool and He lifts a palm of water toward me.

The drops glisten, slipping through his fingers into the grass.

Come, be clean.

I bow low and snuggle down in the grass and rest at His feet.
It’s quiet. Safe.
He pulls me in close though ugly leaks from my soul.

I give it words, I tell it all—I want to be free to see Him real clear.
To see life real clear, too, just like after the rain.

I’m so thirsty. I want to drink Him in.
And I want to taste the sweetness of His Word, those honey-sweet words of Life.

O, Savior, won’t You wash it all away.

“Against You, You only, have I sinned…
Surely You desire truth in the inner parts;
You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.”
—Psalm 51:4, 6 niv

You too?  Want to be clean?

Turn, He’s waiting for you in the cool of the day at the water’s edge.
Sit with Him—and come clean.
