I am so full of all the wrong things:
poor time management skills
unrealistic expectations
self-righteousness
short-sightedness
misconceptions
entitlement
impatience
irritability
idolatry
anxiety
regret
worry
pride
hurt
fear

.

.

.

under it all, here I am

the me whom You made

the me in need

.

.

.

joy
life
love
truth
peace
wisdom
courage
humility
patience
kindness
goodness
gentleness
self-control
faithfulness
O Holy Spirit,
empty and fill me!

    Faith begins with emptiness, doesn’t it? Knowing that there’s something else, surrendering to it, be willing to empty of self. Good post, Lainie.

    I love this! Great imagery! It appears, as you read downward, that you are being emptied in the first part and refilled in the second part. Very cleverly done! Blessings to you!

  5. Wow! Thanks, everyone! I was afraid it was hokey. 🙂

    Love it! I’ve always loved shape poetry. Many of my poems from the teenage angst years are shaped.
