Pause for Poetry — More Like You

Welcome to Pause for Poetry, featuring a poem, More Like You, written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

More Like You

Today, Lord, I feel like violin strings

being tuned.

With each twist of Your fingers,

You adjust the tension

As you stretch me

To be more in harmony with Your will.

I want to say “Stop!”

But Your Word says

You refine those You love.

How blessed I am

that You care enough

to fine-tune me

to sound more like You.
