Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living




Lent Poem by Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway Christian Life Coaching www.PurposefulPathway.com


“By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” Genesis 3:19


From dust I came,

To dust I will return,

Yet in my heart, Jesus,

Your fire does burn.


For without You, Lord,

Nothing would I be;

Yet in turning to You

I find eternity.


So take my hand,

Lead me on Your way,

Show me Your will

Unfolding each day.


This Lenten journey

I commit to You;

Show me how to live,

Teach me what to do.


Speak to me Your words,

Words richer than gold,

Share with me Your truths

Of the ages old.


I savor Your presence,

For You alone I live;

To You all things,

Lord Jesus, I give.


Ashes to ashes,

This I know is my fate,

Yet a new birth You give,

A new life You create.


So with You I travel,

To Your hand I cling,

Marveling upon this journey

The miracles You bring.


Wondrous are the blessings

You bestow upon me;

In Your eyes, my Jesus,

I see sweet eternity.


On this Lenten journey,

So much do I learn,

And forever in my heart

Your fire does burn.
