Put Me Back Together

Created in Your image,

yet torn am I.

Fragile fragments, whisper-thin shadings

delineate my frame,

a dress-maker’s form

bereft of substance and style.

You alone know the hidden places

where the bits of me lie;

put me back together,

render Your fingerprint

in high relief on each segmented scrap.

When Your signature

sews me shut,

stops the gaps,

the Masterpiece of me

will glow with Your glory.

Put me back together,

make mine a heart undivided and whole,

that I might parade Your Power

from bill-board heights.

    Again, a nice weaving together of prayer and poetry – one of my favorite tapestries from which to discern the movements of the Holy One in our lives.

  2. Very beautiful, hopeful and comforting. I enjoyed it very much.

      Thank you! I believe that all of us have ‘rips’ of one form or another – that is what makes rising above what life hands us so triumphant! And yes – there is a lot of hope, when there is One who is willing to assemble some of those pieces with us…

    This one is truly spectacular, leaves me breathless and whispery, humbled and reverent. WOW-Wonderful, for certain. God bless you, Melody–love, Caddo

    So, so beautifully powerful and a humble cry as well. Love this, Melody! Thank you for sharing your gift with us!

  5. When I saw the title and the picture I thought: OMG, Melody is going dark! I’m sure God will forgive you for only once 🙂
