A Bow In Your Hands

“…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?
