REVIVAL Something needs to be Revived If it has Fallen asleep or Died Lulled into languor Or is it a stupor Apathy maybe It will take more Time to fully see In more of the wealthier Countries There is less bending Of the knee Faith in a Christ appears To be dying More & more we pursue Earth’s pleasure To receive a momentary bliss Ah, the sensation Of an entertainment’s kiss Driving forces beyond measure Revealing more & more Where are our heart’s true treasures As perhaps pure faith languishes More & more numbers show It’s almost vanishing Is there hope for it to Be reviving For this every true believer Should be sighing Return to me, I will return to you Words of God lying Available still to be reviewed In plain black ink on a page So let’s begin the work It will not happen by itself Holy Spirit let us pray That once again you will Rule all our nights & days Lord Jesus, Holy God It is only through your power & your blood that any are ever saved!!

SPIRIT OVERFLOWS You touch The tip Of Your finger To Your lip Then to The very tip Of my hand’s Finger Where You let It linger For only one heart’s beat And then It overflows So that it too may grow This seed It wishes To enlarge Itself I take what You offer Fill my heart’s coffers Then silently It flows Until it reaches Down to my toes & I touch The tip of My finger Where I let It linger To another’s Your Spirit To be Passed on Another does The same So Your Most Glorious Name May be passed Finger to finger Until at last Enough It’s been passed Until no one Else remains All has been done To save Each & every one!!
Haiku for a Fiery Friday
Haiku for a Fiery Friday
Holy Fire fall down
Revive your world once again
Burn with your glory!
Wouldn’t you like to see. . . . ???
Wouldn’t you like to see Utopia? Wouldn’t we all like to see a world without pain, suffering, disagreements, wars, orphans living on the streets with nothing? We have been promised, assured we will live in such a Utopia if we believe in, try to emulate the historically documented Jesus of Nazareth.
It will begin with a revived American church. Our country leads the world in almost everything and so do our churches or they should at least try. Wouldn’t you like to see a church less divided among itself, one with more influence over the world and its culture rather than the other way around with the culture having more influence over God’s living, holy church??
I would love to see revival in the American churches. I pray for revival with more of the power of the Holy Spirit alive and well in our spiritual family. I pray for a lower divorce rate in our churches, a church less caught up in lusting after money and material possessions and one that lusts after Christ more instead. I pray for a church that is less caught up in fitting in with the world and more concerned with standing up and being different from the world’s standards. I pray for a church like the first century one that is willing to go and sell something, lay the money at the feet of our church leaders in order to help the poor and more needy in God’s family. I pray for a church whose true glory is the glory of the living Christ!
May God bless your day. Praise God!!!
Dear God, Creator, of all the Universe and Beyond
I give you all the praise and honor. Thank you for being who you are, for the beauty of your face and the beauty of your great heart. Thank you for the gift of your one and only Son and your Holy Spirit. Praise you God for who you are!
I pray your blessing and protection on all of your churches world-wide, your family, and the people trying to lead them closer to you. I pray we could all be more of what you want us to be so that it is not I that liveth but Christ that liveth in me. I pray especially for the church of my country, America, that we would be less caught up in the culture and more caught up in You, Holy Lord.
I pray for your whole world that every soul on it could come to know you as their Lord and Savior and come to know how much you love them. May we as your church show them your love! I pray this in the name of your most beautiful, gracious Son,
Silver Soul or old habits are hard to kill!
I used to love to write poetry. I have just recently started again. Here are a few old ones from years ago.
The silver soul
Sits on the wire.
The golden globe lights
With eternal fire
The sky and waiting soul.
Changing in His passing by
More nearly each to burning gold.
Both breathe for this a longing sigh.
Golden mirrors of His warmth
For this lost world to view and know,
Making it more clearly seen
The riches of His Heavenly Glow.
It tears at my flesh,
My soul is reborn
Into a world of light.
No more running out of the night.
I thank you Gracious Lord again
For this glory of new life.
It runs downhill and up
In endless joyful flight!
