More from Amy Carmichael

Disappointed?

Art thou disappointed?  Come to Me;
I will never be a grief to thee.

Hurt by hand thou trusted?  Come to Me;
Leaves of healing I will lay on thee.

Art thou broken?  Come, My child, to Me;
I, thy Comforter, will comfort thee.

Even friends can sometimes changeful be;
I will always be the same to thee.

Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite authors, Amy Carmichael.
She was born in 1867 in Northern Ireland and became a missionary to India.

This is one of my favorites of her poems…

 

Flame of God 

From prayer that asks that I may be
Sheltered from winds that beat on Thee,
From fearing when I should aspire,
From faltering when I should climb higher
From silken self, O Captain, free
Thy soldier who would follow Thee.


From subtle love of softening things,
From easy choices, weakenings,
(Not thus are spirits fortified,
Not this way went the Crucified)
From all that dims Thy Calvary
O Lamb of God, deliver me.


Give me the love that leads the way,
The faith that nothing can dismay
The hope no disappointments tire,
The passion that will burn like fire;
Let me not sink to be a clod;
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God
