Lent, a time to pause, and pray, and dwell in desert place;
Stripped of all that burdens me, to open up a space
Where my God may meet me and reveal what’s in His heart.
Show where I must be surrendered, whole and in each part.
What within the secret place, will my good Father find?
Is my will and my desire still with His heart aligned?
Do I treat His kingdom as a holy, precious pearl?
What am I prepared to do, to share it with the world?
Father, let me now receive a gift from up above.
Help me share with those who don’t yet know you - grace and love.
