Catch and Release

Living water

runs wild and free

carving clay

like hands

writing Thee

Many times

I've sought to hold

control and mold

a force so bold

Collecting water

in a strainer

runs quickly out

In my container

it grows a swamp

The way to drink life

is to dive right in

to cease my rowing

To trust in his love

within me


For what is divine

cannot be mortally kept

It must be freely given

And we must choose to accept

Either in self we hope

or Christ does the work

– bondslaves to

futile grueling

or Christ's easy-yoke



"Catch and Release"




"Jesus once again speaks of living water, saying, “'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. ' By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive." John 7:37 - 39
