What you seek is there.
To meet you at “truly aware”.
You’re always looking to the world,
To quench your desire for peace.
From the noise and chatter,
Finding only temporary relief.
You already have all you need,
The fruit of The Spirit is ever present.
Joy, peace, and self control,
Until the world’s illusory solutions,
Are abandoned for the truth inside.
Your peace will remain surface-affixed,
Internal endowments offer a peace…infinitely multiplied.
Flickering glow, circular ceiling projection,
Light piercing the darkened room.
Soft flames filled with warmth,
Dancing with the music’s melodic tune.
Enhancing the moment,
Absorbing emotions to purify.
Negativity, and fear subjected to fire,
Pain burned to indemnify.
A trinity of light to anchor,
Honoring The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Accompanying me in the moment I know,
True light and warmth, ever present…
If I’m to walk in the spirit,
I have to take steps in faith.
It’s easy to remain stagnant,
A slave to my self-centered ways.
I must be tuned in,
Listening for the still, quiet voice.
Which leads me on the narrow path,
And buffers against worldly noise.
While the spirit voice always speaks,
I sometimes attempt to ignore.
Hands on ears “la-la-la-la-la-la-la”,
A sad scene for sure.
At times, the darkness I embrace,
Pours acid on my soul.
Muffles the voice of the spirit,
Making it less recognizable.
I get caught up in self will,
Seeking only that which I desire.
I try to make my steps my own,
And often walk straight into fire.
To do the “next right thing”,
I must obey Holy Spirit promptings.
An obedience I cannot adhere to,
While entertaining enemy tauntings.
“God shots” often arise from seemingly nowhere
Imparting enlightenment if I’m open to receive them
Meant to instruct, guide, and empower
They take my breath away time and again
When in pause, I can recall many times
I’ve received these serendipitous gifts of hope
Reminders that God’s working in my life
I know I’m not alone
I do believe we find that for which we seek
I’m grateful I seek after a loving God
And that He reveals Himself to me
The Holy Spirit within
Fills me with love and light
There’s a still, small voice I detect
Leading me through this life
Amazing wonders I’ve known
I discount the notion of coincidence
Pieces are connected from my past to today
I follow crumbs laid to lead me in each step
God’s growing me up
Teaching me what He wishes me to know
I’m looking, I’m listening
I’m thirsty for spiritual growth
My active addictions blotted out
The sunlight of The Spirit
Like dark, stationary clouds
Creating a divide and distance
God was always there
He never left my side
But I felt I couldn’t look at Him
And tried in vain to hide
I see my life now
How far I’ve come from where I’ve been
I’m less regretful of the past
I’ve gained much knowledge from the many lessons
I ask myself today
If I wished things had been different
And strange as it seems for me to say
I’m grateful for the experiences that contributed to who I am
And I am grateful to my loving God, for never letting go of my hand…
