What Can I Offer? (Write 31 Days, Day 17 & A Giveaway)

A couple days behind again, it was a busy weekend! Today's word (for Day 17) is offer. I had some words come to mind (the first two stanzas of the poem) and I felt they were strong. But then my mind drew a blank and it kind of fell apart as the poem progressed. So this is definitely a poem I want to work on more when this challenge is done! I think it has potential! :)  Remember to check the end of the post for the Write 31 Days giveaway! :)

What Can I Offer?

What can I offer?
What can I bring?
Without you I have nothing.

I offer my worship,
though it misses the mark,
Will you accept it?
It comes from my heart.

Your offering was much more,
so beyond my capabilities.
Your life for mine
so I could be saved.
What more could I offer
than all that I am?

So, fragile and frail
as my life now might be,
sinful and callous,
(sanctify me!),
I offer my worship,
I offer my thanks,
I offer my life,
I offer me. is celebrating all of the amazing Write 31 Days readers who are supporting nearly 2,000 writers this October! To enter to win a $500 DaySpring shopping spree, just click on this link & follow the giveaway widget instructions. Good luck, and thanks for reading!
