Coffee for Your Heart-My Morning Offering

 By Susie Teramura

Out the window

A new day breaking

Orange sun and

Golden clouds

Herald your presence

Fresh

At your altar

I lay my morning offering.

Thoughts become words

Slow

Tears form

Big as raindrops

Falling steady

To the beat

Of my breaking heart

Pounding to the rhythm of

Helplessness,

Washing the burden

Of it all

Into your strong arms-

In the hard letting go,

My stomach turns

And crawls into my throat

But You,

Compassionate one,

Comfort me,

Quiet me,

And put my stomach

Back where it belongs.

You speak a different word.

A word of strength,

Peace and

Purpose

Reminding me that in You

I am able

To do all things,

That You will

Help me,

And that I am

Held

Tears still fall as

The sun takes

Its place in

The morning air,

But now my heart pounds

Out a new rhythm

Sweet and strong

A new sound,

A song found in You,

 I am ABLE,

             (Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through Him who gives me strength)                                                                                HELPED,

(Psalm 86:17 ..for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.)

And HELD.

(Psalm 18:16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters)
