5/18 Limerick: Hole Heart


Instead, one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out.

John 19:34

Lord I wanna have “hole heart”
So I am living a new start
When from me sin pours
I’m free to be yours
Where nothing will ever tear us apart

Today I will un-guard my heart — the right way!

5/2 Limericks: In Adequacy


The cause of our worst maladies
Is our deep insecurities
That cause us to chafe
At Law, to feel safe
From those who seem our enemies

The alternative remedy
Is finding true adequacy
By sharing Christ’s cross
We win from each loss
And turn our shame to His glory

3/27 Limericks: New Skin Whine


If we are to drink the divine
We must learn to silence our whine
The voice of our flesh
Refuses what’s fresh
And clings with a death-grip to “Mine!”

If we’re to be free from our sins
We must let God give us new skins
And see that the cross
Is more gain than loss
For that is where wholeness begins

Today I will wear God-skin / As He wears mine

And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will spill, and the wineskins will be ruined.
Luke 5:37
