His faithfulness

I only glimpse
truth
because You have given me
Your eyes

Lost
so that You could lead me
Empty
so that You could fill me
Erased
so that You could rewrite me
Foolish
so that You could teach me

By Your hand
I have a new heart
that hungers and burns
to remain fixed
on You, undivided
Washed in Your faithfulness
to be a signpost
pointing to Your glory

Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. Psalm 86:11-12 NIV

I like those single word lines -- they add dramatic effect - you use them well here. Good poem, Karin.
