Oh, and I promise to make the process fun. Yes, fun.

I'm Jena

See I try to fill my empty holes

With things only He can fill

Success, vanity, man’s approval

My moral muscle flexing all the while

Knowing the riptide that will follow:

Shame, fear, self-contempt become the pests that haunt me

Because quite honestly, I’m anxious in the waiting

Yelling God, why?!

Doubting His goodness

Because I obviously know what’s better for me

So I try and do it myself, independence my middle name

Seeking my glorification, hoping in myself

And then it crashes, He knows it would

Stuck in the middle, living a medium life

He croons, “But I have much more for you

My grace is beautiful, holy, paid in full

Dipped in red, I thought of you, I still think of you

Every time you’ve faltered, I’ve welcomed you back

Don’t you see, I know you

I’ve knitted you, I cherish you, I pursue you

But your grip is too strong, holding onto medium

Let it go, I have a plan, seek my face, I’m glancing your way

I’ll be the pilot, the commander-in-chief, the lifeguard

Transforming your broken soul into the light

Let me continue to romance you back to life.”

And so I sit between the base of the cross

And the stone rolled away

Inching closer to the truth of the resurrection

Untangling my fingers from the lies I so hold dear

Sitting, palms up

Impatiently waiting

Listening for the cue

Praying in childlike faith

“Use me.”
