Word

           “Now I have put my words in your mouth.”
                           —Jeremiah 1.9

Beloved, I am not a prophet;
but you have placed your grace in me
like a treasure in a chest;
you have planted the seed of your love in me;
you have put your Word in my mouth.

What is your Word in me today?
How shall I speak forth, in word and deed,
your truth?

Give me insight to discern,
courage to proclaim,
and wisdom to heed your Word.
