Seeking Specks


All this work seeking specks on snow is chicken scratch,

for here I am,

grasping for crumbs under the table,

coveting the hem of Your garment

when I am an invited guest at Your banquet table.

I’m sewing a new patch on an old wine-skin;

rather than the patch,

I will put on my new robe,

garment of praise

more fitting for a Daughter of the King.

So dressed, I will rise up,

approach Your throne room with confidence,

and claim my prize –


and more,

and more

of You

double portion,

spilling over,


glory following glory.

This seeking specks

is for

the birds…

    So long I have been satisfied with crumbs, believing the banquet was really for others far more worthy than me. I’ve approached the throne and generous Father with the timid attitude of Oliver, “More, please?” Oh the joy in casting off the question and claiming what is mine.

      Amen to that, Tina, amen to that! What a lot of blessings have been stored up in cupboards waiting to be given out, and we haven’t asked… I rejoice with you in your new confidence! πŸ™‚
