EVER GREEN IN YOU!

I stand, like a tree in winter, stripped bare - ugly - disfigured!
Somewhere within I remember - and yearn - for The Joy I once had...
When my Saviour Touched my life, when I knew that He Lives and Loves me.

Now - a tight, cold band surrounds my heart, holding me tight in its wintry grip!
Sometimes I struggle to 'get right with God', I feel the stirrings of 'buds', at the end of 'branches'.
Trust begins to develop again tentatively - then the 'late frost' of adversity kills those 'buds'...

Yet I do not want to be constantly tossed by the winds of insecurity.
I yearn to let my Saviour back into my cold, unyielding, proud heart.
I long to accept The Love, Understanding and Forgiveness that He alone Offers to me.

So LORD, Come, Bathe my heart in The Warmth and Sunshine of Your Love.
Water me in The Secret Places, remove anything that stunts my growth in You.
Help me daily to stand tall, reaching my arms Heavenward in Praise and Thanksgiving - ever green in You!!!
