I Choose Life

Inspired from the lenten devotional reading from Deuteronomy 30: 15-20

I choose you Abba-

I choose life, and breath, and peace.

I choose you Abba,

I lift my hands, I ‘release’.

Release my heart from selfish woes

the pitiful wailing of spirit stubbed toes.

the selfish wants, and haves and musts

I choose what is eternal, and knows no rust.

I choose your life, your peace, your rule-

I humble my heart to the potters tool.

I die to live-

I  lose to gain-

I  lack to give-

I thirst for rain.

I choose you, Abba

I choose life.
