is mine well or in need of change?
In times before, I’ve spent Lent considering
how I’ve rearranged priorities and whether I
managed to choose all You meant for me to do,
but this year I want more! I want to explore
Your Word in depth until Your thoughts
become mine, and the faith of Bible people
becomes mine, and Your love for others
becomes mine, and Your forgiving ways
are what I follow. Oh, Lord, let not my soul
be hollow! Heal me, and fill me with praise.
