Gentle spirit; passionate, loving heart,
fulfillment lies within thy troubled soul.
Firmly fix thy eyes upon thy Father,
and leave before Him thy burdens of old.
From this sinner emerges a faithful child.
A toddler gripping to his Fatherís chest,
walking in shoes too big for tender feet,
and bringing before Him childish requests.
Mature oh heart! Become like your Father.
Place thy childish ways upon the shelf.
Forgive the immature ways of others;
with blessed salvation, draw up thyself.
Be still burdened heart heavy with revenge.
Feel the calmness that consumes from within.
When you release the confines of yourself,
and place your trust completely in Him.
Guide me Father through the tangled forest.
Prevent mine eyes from staring at the ground,
for my vision is lost amongst the trees;
my own frustrations a resounding sound.
Mature oh heart! Become like your Father.
Deny thyself the thought of sinful ways.
Fulfillment lies within thy troubled soul.
Live thy life filled with obedient days.

i Like this. have a little look at your scanning, but otherwise some great images. you might want to split up the stanzas to make it easier to read.

I agree, splitting up the verses would make it not only easier to read, but put more emphasis on each new thought. A very nice poetic way to fulfillment...I liked it.

I agree with splitting up the stanzas. It is a good read however.
