Becoming Flame – One Shot Wednesday- Week 51

Here we are at week 51. Great job!

My one shot:

Becoming Flame

I offer You the straw of my life,
O Lord of my redemption.
Send Your angels, day by day,
To glean my field,
To fuel the fire of Your Love.

Did You not say,
“Learn from Me,
For I am meek,
And humble of heart?”
You do not need my riches.
You seek my poverty, my emptiness.
Your Fire penetrates my stubble.

I become like You,
All aglow
As light and heat
Testify to Your Presence in the flame
That shoots to the heavens.

I am surrender and trust
In welcome transformation.
I am lost and yet eternal.
In You, straw by straw,
As kindling,
I am become the Flame.

  1. There is a lot to learn from humility.. it’s quite an art indeed…
    Surrender does not necessarily mean defeat.. it could even mean the need to learn this art…

    A beautiful and inspiring poem, Joann ….

  2. “I am surrender and trust
    In welcome transformation.”

    Beautiful, and that is really all that is asked of us, trust and surrender, He will mold us as needed.
