So Many Bleeding Hearts

So many bleeding hearts

on display wherever I go.

Why, Lord?

Why so many?

Why don’t you

fix the economy,

destroy the Abuser,

deal Poverty its death-blow,

restore relationships,

and heal this land?

Why don’t you

do something?

What’s that?

You already did?

Oh, I see.

You sent me…

Well, what can I do?

I am only one!

Don’t you see all those bleeding hearts

hanging in the balance?

What’s that?

You want me to do what?

Just one.

One bleeding heart at a time.

With Your help.


Just one.

Only one.

I can do that,

if you will help me.

You already are?

I remember now.

You are Big,

and You are Strong.

Which one, Lord?

    Love this Melody…One heart at a time…yes…that’s the heart of God flowing through you. Thanks for sharing. I’ve retweeted this on Twitter.

  2. A powerful ‘prayer;’ it is really thought-provoking and puts the question back to us individually, “What can I do?”

      I often struggle with the sheer number of needs – but it is so quieting to the spirit to start at home, with my ‘one’ – my own family – and then, with the energy I have left, to offer one heart at a time something small that I can give. I know that there are many who can do this – and our ‘one’ will be many!

  3. This is beautiful and thoughtful. One heart at a time, one day at a time. If everyone had your spirit, what a much better world this would be.

    WOW again–this is very moving, and such a blessing, Melody. You’re gifted, brilliant–a genius, and one of God’s special angels. I’m SO glad to know you! love, Caddo
