Can I Trust You with My Heart?

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Can I trust You with my heart?
Can the very hands that hold the universe together,
That spin the earth, and calm the sea;
That paint a rainbow-sunset over the mountains,
And guide the soaring eagle to her nest;
Can those same omnipotent hands tenderly surround my heart,
Covering the anxious beats with an overwhelming peace?
 
Only You possess such peace.
Only You possess such a love that engulfs
My worry-weary soul and says, “enough,
All is well…rest in Me.”
Yes…I can trust you.
Take my heart,
And keep it close to Yours.
 
 
“Then you will experience God’s peace,
which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace
will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:7 NLT
