Pause for Poetry — Nurture Me, Lord

Welcome to Pause for Poetry, featuring a poem, Nurture Me, Lord, written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

Nurture Me, Lord

Fill me

with the rich soil

of Your Word.

Plant in me

seeds of kindness,

goodness and love.

Drench me

with Your living water

that I may grow

in Your image

and bloom


in Your heavenly garden.
