Peel Me Back

  1. Peel Me Back
    by Judy Hicks

    God peel me back
    That which I’ve known ‘me’ to be.
    Until I reach raw honesty and authenticity with You –
    Connected and intimate.

    Help me unravel these decades of ‘sound bites’ of existence –
    Until I know and connect once again with You as my source.
    You’re the one who planted this spirit in the womb
    With intention and purpose for good.

    Help me develop the capacity and wisdom
    To hear and yield only to Your direction.
    Uncover, as only You can do, with detailed thoroughness
    all that is in me not matching and reflecting Your way.

    Help me to detect early – the familiar fear that arises
    when I forget, You are here with me.
    Derail the whirlwind of thoughts hijacking
    My knowing and growing back to You.

    Peel me back Oh God.
    Remind me and help me once again to avoid settling
    for the smooth deception and self-serving agendas all around.
    Help me to walk daily in the power and truth of Your Word, of Love.

    Peel me back – to Your original intention.
    Make the way as I walk through this day unconcealed.
    Whisper words wise and true as I run after You
    Yes, peel me back to reveal Your LOVE – walking.

    Thank you for asking. It is one of many works by Ilsa Kleyn.

    Just to clarify, I do have her express permission to share.

      YW. It's a rather effective picture.

    PS: Did you draw the picture of the lady with the open Bible? very effective.

    How we need to search our hearts, indeed, and allow the Scriptures by the Spirit to search us! :)

    "O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.

    2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off." (Psalm 130.1-2)
