Humble Exchange

Clinging to your troubles
Closed fisted and closed minded
Squinting to avoid the pain
Sense of guilt
Meets pardoning grace
Again and again
Can you be humble?
Will you take
The exchange?

“The more burdens we put on His shoulders, the more precious will He be to us.”

— Charles Spurgeon

the ragged world

the ragged world

the bright bauble
that clogs our minds
impels us into
its embrace

at what point
do we realize
we cannot
measure it
with the span
of our hand
nor subdue
its breadth
to our knowing

man is not
the gauge
of everything
pride warps the
boundary lines
and fudges
the increments

through
the humble door
alone
can the thread-bare
ragged world
be seen
in clarity
