Rise to Try Again

Posted on April 11, 2008

Though I falter and once more spread my face

Upon the cold concrete…

I will rise to try again.

Though my many empty promises fall on wanting ears

Only to be dashed on the rocks…

I will rise to try again.

Though my love is imperfect, my heart is cold and my faith grows old…

I will rise to try again.

I am unworthy.

Unwanted.

Unloved.

But You have deemed this piece of waste worth dying for!

You wanted and loved me when I neither loved nor wanted myself.

Touch my lips with purifying fire and teach me…

Peace that comes through pain…

And a love that comes from fire.

David suffered but a while then, through purity of heart, he regained what was lost from the fall.

God, in the end I just want to hear the words, “This was a man after God’s own heart”.

As I rise, once more to try again.

  1. I somehow knew after only the first line that this was a prayer.

    God, in the end I just want to hear the words, "This was a man after God’s own heart".

    As I rise, once more to try again.

    Amen…

  2. The repetition is very motivating…maybe invigorating…maybe inspiring. All of the above, I think. I really like the reference to Isaiah. Peace through pain. Keep rising, friend.
