Got hit with a bit of a flu bug or something yesterday (no fun!), but am feeling improved today - just very tired. So, I had some time to think and pray (and nap ... between sprints to the bathroom). Here are a few poems that get to the heart of my prayers:
As a moth is drawn to light,
So am I drawn to You, my God.
Though the darkness presses in around me,
And my wings have wearied in the night,
Though I beat against unrelenting glass,
Still my heart longs for Your light.
I will keep flying, fluttering, straining
To be closer, closer, closer yet
To You, my desire, my life, my love,
Closer to Jesus, my Light.
