Love Through Me, Love of God

For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be glory forever. Amen.
Romans 11:36, ESV


Love through me, Love of God,
   There is no love in me;
O Fire of love, light Thou the love
   That burns perpetually.

Flow through me, Peace of God,
   Calm river flow until
No wind can blow, no current stir
   A ripple of self-will.

Shine through me, Joy of God,
   Make me like Thy clear air
That Thou dost pour Thy colours through,
   As though it were not there.

O blessed Love of God,
   That all may taste and see
How good Thou art, once more I pray,
   Love through me, even me.

~Amy Carmichael, Edges of His Ways, August 1


Today is the 7th anniversary of this blog. The reflective post I'm working on isn't ready yet, so I thought I'd share this prayer-poem which captures so well my desire for the Lord's glory to shine through me, whether here or in "real" life. Thank you for your kindness and grace in reading, commenting, and praying. Grace and peace to you in Jesus!

Under His wings,
