“…He makes His bow and makes it ready.” Psalm 7:12 (NKJV)
I am a bow in Your hands, Lord
Draw me, lest I rot
Do not overdraw me, Lord. I shall break
Overdraw me, Lord, and who cares if I break?
Nikos Kazantzakis, quoted from The Ragamuffin Gospel, Brennan Manning
Every time I read this poem it brings tears to my eyes. How many of us pledge our undying devotion to God, then get scared, and then surrender to Him all over again?
