Holy Ground

If I want peace

What must I do

Another chance

A friendly move

If I want life

What must I sow

Prepare the soil

For seeds to grow

If I want mercy

I offer the same

Root out anger

Remove the blame

If I want love

Make room inside

A cluttered heart

Brings more divide

If I want faith

Let go of doubt

A life of fear

Will live without

When Jesus came

He made a way

For all good things

Come what may

If I believe

That this is true

My words and deeds

Reflect this view

Lord, give me strength

To persevere

To offer love

Not pride or fear

I want to build

And not tear down

I want to grow

In your holy ground

Inspired by Psalm 4:4 “Be angry and do not sin; on your bed, reflect in your heart and be still”
