Let's Be Poetic

Less about Me, More about You

Inspired by the acknowledgement that I tend to put myself and my wants first before God when He’s said in His word: ‘Thou shalt have no other gods before me’ (Exodus 20:3) // ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding’ (Prov 3:5)

Lord make me blind to my own resolve 
To the personal pronouns 
To the 'Tolz'
Let me see you in all I do 
Let your will be exalted above mine
Help me put you first 
Lest I be cursed 

What would Jesus do? 
What do you want me to be? 
What can I see, what should I see? 
Direct me, guide me
You’re within me not external
Your love reigns forever, it’s eternal 
So let me rely on your Spirit that lives within me 
And let the aspect of ‘within me’ not bring anxiety 

The idea that I might glorify myself above thee
Because it’s an honour for my body to be your cover, your temple 
So let me not take for granted 
Let me reverence, respect and honour your name 

My tummy clenches 
I feel defenceless 
Because I realise 
I’ve been doing the opposite 
I’ve been relying on my own “sixth sense” 
But you embody and impact all my senses 
And you build up the fences 

To guard my heart 
To keep it contrite for you 
And to set me apart 
For your glory only 
Quite literally the meaning of my name 
So help me not bring you disdain
And make meaningless attempts
To come above your reign 

By Tolz 👑

My thoughts are best expressed by writing.
So that's what I do - I write.

It's how I make sense of it all.
My prayer is that someone somewhere is blessed or is able to relate to what I write.

"Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them..." ~ Romans 12:6
