A Perfect Day ~

absolute-surrender CHRIStina poetry by deborah ann

A perfect day with skies of blue,
my thoughts, my Father turn to You
while the sun is on its morning rise
I pray for You, to help make me wise.

As the morning sings its new song,
my heart for You begins to long
for today is Yours, for me to embrace
I pray to be filled with Your grace.

I trust You under the warming sun,
to continue the work which You begun
for the morning sun will be hot by noon
I know the branches, You need to prune.

As I toil through the heat of the day,
I know You will guide, lead the way
for the pruning is done to perfect in me
the life of Christ, for other’s to see.

As the day comes to a sun kissed end,
I thank You Father, for being my friend
for, today was indeed a perfect one . . .
to produce more fruit, for Your Son!

John 15:2

“Every branch in me
that beareth not fruit he taketh away:
and every branch that beareth fruit,
he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.”

Getting Me a Trim!

Branches by Terry Lane free photo #18423

I’m being pruned to be,
a whole lot more like Him
God is cutting away
each fruitless, useless limb.

He’s sniping at my pride,
my smugness and my ego
so His life in mine . . .
will finally start to show.

He’s trimming each branch,
until their shaped and formed
He isn’t going to stop until
in Him I am transformed.

He’s cutting out the dead wood,
striping back what is loathed
until each new branch
in Him is fully clothed.

Although at first it hurts,
all this cutting and trimming
I know that one day to Him
I’m going to look amazing.

I’m being cut and snipped,
God’s pruning me limb by limb
until I resemble someone . . .
who looks a whole lot like Him!
