Let me not

Let me not be distracted by the common things                                                                                

The little things that catch my eye and cause me to give a moment’s pause

Let me not linger too long in dismay over the evidences of my journey                                       

The tell-tale signs of my struggles written on my face in deeper lines and creases

Let me not agonize over the fading of youth and beauty                                                                   

But only ask what You see in the creases and the lines

Let me not gather the ashes of my yesterdays      

In wishing for things discarded by Your hand

Let me not collect my scars like keepsakes held in pretty jars.                                                   

To be admired and cherished for my own sake

Let me not be distracted by the common things

Let me not linger, agonize, gather, collect…

Unless it is to

Linger at Your feet

Agonize over another’s soul

Gather the evidences of Your grace

Collect the memories of Your blessings

In these I will glory and dwell
And from them, let me never wander too far

 Angie ❣
