Unclutter Your Heart

 

God, make a fresh start in me,

shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.

Don’t throw me out with the trash,

    or fail to breathe holiness in me.

Bring me back from gray exile,

    put a fresh wind in my sails!

Eugene H. Peterson, Psalm 51:10-12, The Message

 

unclutter, unfetter, unbind yourself

from all that distracts you from knowing

who and what

you are. You are created for love

in love. You are worthy 

of this love.

 

unclutter, unfetter, unbind yourself

from people, things, places that

corrupt this love. You are

what matters. Attend to your 

inner voice. You are worthy

of this love. 

 

unclutter, unfetter, unbind yourself

from the loss, let the past

sleep in my safe embrace. Rest

in my arms. Feel my heart

beat. You are worthy

of this love.
