Holy Heart of my heart

I praise you for purging
these surges of self
that get in Your Way
when I want mine.

Praise You, Lord God,
for Your Pure Heart
and Holy Veins flowing
with the kind of kindness
I want to be
a finer part of me.

Praise You for oozing out
whatever we complain about,
and please empower our
hearts to keep choosing
and trusting you hour
by hour, day by day, as
we pray for what we can’t
begin to do without a Heart
transplant from You.
