My Heart’s Cry


My Heart’s Cry

Come and make me whole
Is the cry of my heart.
Remove those things
That keep me from You.

To be complete.
To be whole.
To be normal.
To be well.

Do this in me.
Continue the work You began
So many years ago.
I know You will.

I give You my soul
I give You my heart.
Have Your way in my life.
Ignore the wails of my flesh.

Hear the cry of my heart.
It is the truest cry
Of my entire being.
I love You so.

Thank You for Your Grace
That has no end.
Thank You for Your love
That suffers long.

~ Laurie Pontious-Andrews


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.
