Happy World Poetry Day!!

Inspired by: Jeremiah 20:9 But if I say, “I will not mention him or speak anymore in his name, “his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in indeed, I cannot.

“FIRE”

This gift you have given me, I cannot take for granted

Years of molding and shaping me, on fertile soil it was planted

Your whispers are so sweet and fill my heart with inspiration

One mention of your sovereign name and I get motivation

With my journal wide open and my pencil in hand

I’m unclear of what to write but my spirit understands

Your Word is deep and its lessons are limitless

I’m nurturing my gift and will pursue it with vigilance

I have a need to share your Word with creative expression

I have a need to share your joy and bring a little bit of Heaven

To a hurting world and a starving generation

To spread peace and love across this great nation

As I dictate the thoughts that you bring to my mind

I am amazed at your love and wonder why you’re so kind

When I was down in sin you lifted my head

I will brag about your goodness and your gospel I will spread

Lord I thank you and with a full voice I say

I celebrate you and glorify your love on World Poetry Day!
