Pour me out

This shell contains
too much
of me
not room enough
for all that He
desires to pour.

I've been leaking
yes, but far
too slow
progress hindered
as if a "no"
was whispered in the dark.

Accept my "yes"
Lord, even though
it seems so late in coming.
To brave the pain
of letting go
I spill my cup
releasing all
in a fresh fall
of tears
to let this shell
at once grow thin
to let Your glory
shine within.

This is such a beautiful reflection of your relationship with God....beautifully written from a beautiful heart....a message we all need...."pour me out"..."let this shell at once grow thin to let Your glory shine within."....so true and lovely!

A beautiful poem, and I can relate to the leaking too slowly, needing to be poured out. Blessings. :)

LOVE this. I so much want to be poured out and yet I'm still too empty for pouring. Beautiful, my friend, just beautiful.

So may we all be poured out.
So may we all be filled.

Great poem. From the heart.

Beautiful reflections. We need to be empty in order to receive.

So lovely! I really relate to these lines:

Accept my "yes"
Lord, even though
it seems so late in coming.

He always does.
