Poured out. empty.


Poured out.
empty.
my words are spilled out on page
or screen.
whichever two dimensional tablet I choose.

Poured out.
empty.
His insides are spilled out on ground
or me.
whichever lifeless surface I choose.

How do I make my words count?
They are only sounds spelled out
by letters.
I throw them into the air
speak life to them with hot breath.

How do I make His death count?
Blood has fallen on dead flesh
and bones.
He’s splattered it everywhere
and sighed last with death rattle.

My words
in me.
His Life
for me.
and I pour out my words infused with His life.
It was His life for mine.
His Words for mine.

An excellent exchange.
for me,
dontcha think?
What about for Him?
Was the trade good for Him?
aside from obedience?

Make my life count, Jesus
Who lives forever.
Make my words count, Lord
Word-giver.

  1. Oh…this is just lovely…”My words in me.His Life for me.and I pour out my words infused with His life.It was His life for mine.His Words for mine.” I love this….will take this with me:) blessings~

  2. His Father’s pleasure…that’s worth striving for.
    My obedience. That’s what I’m aiming for.
    And the exchange? God says it’s worth it. I humbly accept…

    beautiful words spilled here, Kim.

    (and yay for the batmobile and muffins!) 🙂
