Let me be...

Let me be voiceless,
so that i know what it means to feel small and ignored,
not heard.
In this way i'll know Your voice and the power of You
in gathering all the cries of the oppressed.

Let me be empty,
to have cried out every tear,
to know what it means to not want to yearn,
for Your strength to fill and sustain me
and know in order to be filled You feed us with living bread.

Le me be foolish,
so i am able to be the opposite of this world,
to know Your kingdom by walking the ways less traveled.
The ways of a fabric of faith.
