My Everything


My Everything

You desire to be my Everything.
You want to provide all that I need.
You ask me to lean on You
And trust only You.

I am learning, although it is hard.
I have lived most of my life
Taking care of myself
Attempting to meet my own needs.

It hasn’t worked
But it is deeply ingrained.
Help me to allow You
To be Everything to me.

Help me to rest fully enveloped
In Your arms of Love.
I want to feel Your warmth
Fully surrounding my entire being.

Help me to fully experience
All the love You have for me.
I want to feel greater
Degrees of it in my life.
Respond to my plea.

About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
