Matthew 26:39 “…he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will but as you will.'”*
perfection fell down
to the man-trodden ground.
for this cup to be taken
his soul did cry
could this plan…
if divinity can honestly
pour heart’s plea
how much more then
poem by patty perkins
Jesus’ honesty took nothing away from his obedience. It was that crux of a moment when he put it out there and bared his soul to his Father. He owned a deeper determination to follow through with the Father’s plan.
If a holy Jesus bared his honest soul—then surely, so can I.
