Take Me, Break Me
(a prayer)
by Steve Laube

Take my eyes Lord.
Strike me blind.
* * *
Then heal me Lord
That I may see with Your eyes.

Take my hands Lord.
Crush every bone.
* * *
Then heal me Lord
That I may touch with Your tenderness.

Take my ears Lord.
Deafen me.
* * *
Then heal me Lord
That I may hear with Your sensitivity.

Take my feet Lord.
Amputate without hesitation.
* * *
Then heal me Lord
That I may walk only on Your path.

Take my tongue Lord.
Sever it.
* * *
Then heal me Lord
That I speak only with Your words.

Take my life Lord.
End it
* * *
Then resurrect me Lord
That I may have life only in You.

Hear my prayer.

Today's Uplifting Message

The two disciples did as Jesus commanded. They brought the donkey and the colt to him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat on it.

Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road ahead of him, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting,

"Praise God for the Son of David!

Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Praise God in highest heaven!"

The entire city of Jerusalem was in an uproar as he entered. "Who is this?" they asked. And the crowds replied, "It's Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

-- Matthew 21:6-11 NLT

Farwell to Treble Hearts/MountainView Publishing

I'm sad to report that one of my first publishers, Treble Heart Books, is closing soon. The publisher made an impact on the Christian small press market and will be remembered. There are still print copies available of "Words To Write By," my compilation of devotionals for writers. There are many other titles still for sale, so check it out before they're gone forever. My thanks to Lee Emory and her staff for their years of hard work in Christian publishing. Also available from Amazon.
