Heart Cry

Reality bubbles up between the cracks
of my heart

Days of sunshine
can hide
what is underneath

Drifting along
on the stream of comfort
confidence grows 
in the facade

As the storm hits
the paper tears in the wind and rain
What I thought was real
and planted deep within
hadn't taken root

Was still on the page

Break up the dry ground, Father

This love for myself runs so deep

Pull out the roots

Scatter Your seeds

Send the Rain of Your Spirit

Be Life in me

This is what the Lord says 
to the people of Judah and Jerusalem:   
“Plow up the hard ground of your hearts! 
Do not waste your good seed among thorns. 
O people of Judah and Jerusalem, surrender your pride and power. 
Change your hearts before the Lord...

Jeremiah 4:3-4 nlt

The Lord will send rain 
to water the seeds you have planted--
your fields will produce more crops than you need

Isaiah 30:23 cev
