Poetry Sunday ~ Free

Pss. 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

I want to tell the story
of how I was set free.
One day I heard a quiet knock
the Lord said, “Look to me.”

I gazed upon a glorious sight
all thought of me insane.
I told of how my skin was bronzed
while standing in the rain.

The weather dark and dreary
how ever could that be
I told of how the Lord had come
and said please look to Me.

I stood before the Glory
there without a name.   
I felt the spirit within me lift
My soul He’d come to claim.

Although I fell to my knees
He gently lifted me
I raised my eyes toward Him
He said, “Child come to me.”

Forever changed by His love
all darkness turned to Light.
My God and all His glory
instilled in me new sight.

I have to share my story
of how I came to be.
My Lord, my King, my Savior
said, “Child you’re now set free!”

Pss. 54: 6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good.

Thanks Ben!

Not only did a word from Tom and his
friend inspire this, I did feel the God inspiration through every word. It just flowed. :)

Amen. Flowed so easily and fills the reader with inspiration and the awesome awareness of how God wants us to come to Him.

Flowed easily, was inspirational and spoke volumes about God's desire for us to come to Him. ♥

Thanks Deb!

Coming to Him is so easy, it's obeying Him that some seem to have trouble with.

Hmm... there's an idea for another poem! :)

Thanks a lot!
