So yes, now I am aware of my surroundings. I am even more aware that there is a lost and dying world out there that needs a Savior. I wrote a poem about a year ago that I would love to share.
I Want More
Hear I am watching the majesty of your handiwork.
Watching the waves crash in the ocean and seeing the
grains of sand that are too many to count.
In this moment, I long to hear your voice, to know you’re here,
and to see a glimpse of you.
Help me to understand the madness that surrounds my life.
I don’t have to know all the answers, just bring some peace to the strife.
What am I to learn from all of this? What do you want me to do?
Please purify me all over and make my life new.
I desire the best for my family and I know that you do to, so please
protect us and help us to live only through you.
Open doors wide to things I never knew existed.
To a world where you’re all that matters in our feeble existence.
Show me things I’ve never seen before…big,
WOW things that show that you are God.
You said in your word that with your holy spirit we would be
able to do even more than you did in your time here on earth…
Why has no one’s faith taken your word for what it’s worth?
I want to be the one. The one to show your greatness.
Use me Lord to do what none has done before.
I’m so tired of religion, politics and procedures…
the formality of what people think church is for.
Lord, I don’t want to do that anymore.
I want my life to matter for your kingdom.
To see your handiwork now through life change and freedom.
Nothing brings more joy than to see your creation
When for the first time they receive your mercy and hope…What elation!
This is what I desire from you Lord. Put us in a place where we see this more.
In a place where people hunger for your goodness, your mercy and your truth.
God this is what I want for my life! I want your handiwork to come to know you!
Give me the boldness for a new work ahead.
Give me the anointing so they see, not me, but you instead.
Give me the wisdom to tread where none have trod.
Give me the peace to rest in you, God.
I love you, I need you, I lay my life at your feet.
Now use me sweet Jesus and let none defeat!
