Repeat Performance

by Lolita Jardeleza, a longtime friend of MH.

Lord, we have been through this before.
The pruning, the stripping, the reaming,
The purifying, the purging,
The burning off.

It never gets easy;
If anything, it gets harder
With time.
I never get used to it.

But “Amen,” Lord,
I understand
Why this has to be.
So let my response remain
What I always wanted:
Absolute submission to You,
     Full surrender to Your will
          Total trust in Your goodness,
However dark the night.

Let doing Your will be my delight.
