How does it happen so fast?
Again – you speak and I listen and I am changed.
And again – I am distracted. Life moves in and I am swayed.
Less than I was before.
Why does my stubborn heart so easily turn? My ear so readily become deaf?
My mind so quickly forget that without you, none of this makes sense.
And so again.
Again, I turn my face to yours. Bask in the warm, life-giving light of your love that casts out all darkness and fear. And I feel my soul thaw.
And I am made new. Your love makes me new.
