Willing to be Forgotten

Monday is for Reflection

Forgotten RuinsO LORD my God, If I have done this
.       if there is injustice in my hands

Let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it.
.       And let him trample my life down to the ground
.       And lay my glory in the dust.    Selah.

Psalm 7:3, 5 (NASB)

Willing to be Forgotten

I am willing to be forgotten,
A ruin surrounded by forest
Dismembered from humanity,

Unrecognized, unheeded, unacclaimed,
Unappreciated and dismissed
Forgotten, buried and unremarked.

If only you would rescue each of my children
each of my grandchildren
each of my accomplished brothers and 
both of my extraordinary sisters.

Rescue their children, their spouses
Rescue them and never let them go.
Draw them to Yourself.
Show them Your beauty.
Make idols cease.
Let truth reign.
Rescue them O God for Your name

You hold all the cards.
Yet this is my “bargain.”
I am willing, eager, to make this trade.
Give me obscurity and You, (I must have You), 
And rescue them to You,
That together we might enjoy and cherish You, forever.

Go to Psalm 8
