as I am as I operate;
neither my past nor my future.
not through exertion of effort or external fashioning
do I attain my worth and portion,
but through abiding in Love;
A love that frees and forgives
flowing into empty vessels
and sprouting out of solid ground
by the goodness of His Grace.
So my shortcomings sing a story
of strength that groans for glory;
I securely rest in fleeting space
until the Day I see His face.
