Father's Day

Oh, that you know what I need...
to lie at rest at your feet.
To repose in your love
the world swirls and cascades
in tumultuous clamoring
of attention.
and now without the world, what have I?
who am I?
in you, my Lord...
what can I give
As Peter said, 'silver and gold have I none,
but such as I have, give I thee.....
In the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk.'

speak to yourself (I whisper softly to my own heart),
despair be gone.

Rise and shine, for your Creator has Redeemed your broken soul.

Why is that so hard to grasp?
