This week ‘Weekend Inspiration’ is another one of Lorraine Szabo’s Poems. Lorraine is such prolific writer of poem, and we are blessed by being able to use them. So enjoy and be inspired by Lorraine’s poem called ‘It Is Time’.
It Is Time.
Lord, is it not time for me to leave yet?
The tears and the years have wearied this soul
Surely there is little left for me to learn all you set
In so many tests through life’s mending of holes.
The ‘Letting Go’ of love’s rejections.
I strive to fulfill your truth so wise.
To be aware of such many inner prompts of your predictions.
To obey, and to pray, as the trials doubled much in size.
The trying became crying alone.
Only in your spirit did I claim release,
To commit and trust those heavy burden stones
To you so I could gain loving peace.
Looking back, I sense a closing web
Of time seems to end of my earthly season.
The footsteps you guide me on when you led
so often confused and lost in doubting reason.
Time ticks by day by day
And perhaps your touch will hold a last breathe
In my soul you must stay as the only way
To eternal joy is after the laying of my wreath.
I just need, my Lord, to hasten my body’s decrease
And lift me to heaven in Holy Grace
When the song of freedom and wholeness release
And I can kneel before His awesome face.
So Lord, is it almost time
To carry me home,
By His Spirit winds of His angels?
Let it soon be that time of mine.
