TO BE IN THE SATURATED SPIRIT OF GOD
Dear Father God,
Oh, to be saturated by the thoughts of You
To be immersed in Your teachings so wise and true,
To be encircled by Your thoughts and holy inspirations
As spoken through the lips of ancient generations
That I might study Your Words from dawn until dusk,
And remember the lines meant specifically for us.
That my senses would resist all trivial distractions
And the world's darkened images and painful emotions.
Then maybe I could soar like a bird above the clouds
With Your sword in hand, speaking Your truth outloud
Standing at the border, where earth and heaven meet
Infused with Your courage, in tune with Your heartbeat.
Help me to deliver Your words for today
To a world that looks up to mere statues of clay.
Let me speak of the light that You so graciously shine
On the lives of Your children, on their heavenward climb.
Let me not to be so sullen, somber, and glum
But rejoice in Your promises of better times to come,
Reminding the world of Your songs it cannot sing
For it's adopted the agendas of evil rulers and kings.
Let me not hold in esteem those who lead me astray.
Nor be fooled by their lies and the games that they play.
Direct my thoughts to Your Spirit, that I would hear what You say,
As I grasp Your hand tightly along the straight and narrow way.
Let my thoughts be at peace,
Let my soul's wandering cease
Let my love freely flow for You and Your Son,
And for my mate, on this journey, with who I am one.
