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 itĀ 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?

You’re Not Your Own

This prophecy (as all) is for all who believe and receive it.

“What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Isaiah 6:8, “The Lord saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”

**How have you surrendered to God; how has it been a struggle or joy?
