A Message to Convey

1 John 1: 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

A Message to Convey

I rise up in the morning

What to do today?

Lord you’ve given life to me

Please tell me what to say.

The words they flow like currents

Of energy in my soul.

God places on my heart

Some words to make you whole.

The rhyme is always easy

The rhythm soon to follow.

I fill your heart with messages

The truth is hard to swallow.

The world is full of hatred

Your anger feeds the flame.

Satan’s very happy

That you help him play the game.

Demons linger the hollow street

That man will never see

People become too busy

You’ve asked them not to flee.

By allowing anger free reign

You diminish your own light.

You’ll never know peace within

Diminished is your sight.

Hear the words I offer

He’s asked me to convey.

Give to Him all Glory

On bended knee to pray.

1 John 3: 11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

Nice Joni. You are always offering great insight. Ever hear of Colten Dixon's "You Are" ? Check it out on Youtube if you haven't. I LOVE that song.

Be well,

Thanks for visiting Raven!

I knew you'd find me. :)

I'll look for Colten in the morning, thanks. :)

I try to convey a message in all my poems. Even if it's about snow or something, there is always a message.

As always, an awesome poem that speaks to all who read!

The song that Raven suggested, Colten Dixon's "You Are" is so great...I think it speaks of you too--you are one I think of when I here it.

I listened to the song and it brought tears to my eyes.

I feel an awesome respect for my Lord, and myself, when people see God in me!

All GLORY to Him!!
