Express Yourself

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

– Romans 8:26-27

Sometimes when there’s so much weighing on the mind and heart it can be hard to express to ourselves, let alone to anyone else- including our Creator, God Almighty- what we are thinking, feeling, or experiencing! Let us praise Him for His Holy Spirit that makes intercession for us in accordance to the perfect will of God especially when we are overwhelmed within! Let us praise Him as well for the creative outlets He gives us to help us express ourselves when standard words do not suffice. May God be glorified through whatever media He gives us- whether it be music, painting, or, as is the case for me today, poetry! Let our life’s be loving living prayers to the Lord forever and ever! Amen 🙏

All In All

He occupies my mind and is always on my heart; I live to serve Him more and to never be apart

If only I could get out of His way; He’d have my all and forever unending sway

I long to do justice in accordance to His commands; I long to serve Him with all that I am

I fall so short and it grieves me to my core; I long to love what He loves and hate that which He abhors

I fall short of His glory day after day as I work to solve my problems instead of just going His way

I’m slothful and lazy; I’m self-absorbed. Yet He is my hearts desire and who I live for

Help me! Help me along this narrow way; Keep me from pitfalls and teach me not to stray

I know I am nothing without your grace; just A lost begger blindly leading my own way

Thank you dear Father- for patience sublime; Thank you dear Jesus- your live given for mine

Thank you Holy Spirit- for guiding the way; Thank you for the opportunity to try again today!
