HeartStirred

1920 1135 Amanda N. Butler

“All the women whose heart stirred with a skill spun the goats’ hair.” Exodus 35:26 NASB

 

My heart stirs with a skill for You, Lord.
With a needle I am mediocre –
with a ladle I am hesitant –
but I offer my pen to You, Lord.
I offer words –
symbols, stanzas, syllables –
and lay them before You.
My heart stirs with words,
with which I shall write for You.
