O1/1 E

Flower in desert
Staying the course
Journey from liability
To valued resource
Broken down to the bare essentials
Conforming to no man’s image
Not Compromising to worldly norms
Remade, renewed, new creature in You
Only now becoming aware through You
of a greater potential
Covered in ash,
Wallowing in mud
Given freely more than could ever have been earned
Or asked…
Man on fire
Servant on a mission when assigned a task
Regardless of first, least, beast or last
Did HE not choose the twelve
And yet one was a devil?
It’s in the details…
Book of Job takes that understanding to another level
But who wants to hear that?
Advice from friends?
Based on presumptions?
Reserved for the day of wrath
And fiery consumptions
One can only pray
Oh, there have been times when I’ve been discouraged
Or disheartened when the words won’t flow
When there is nothing to give
And those who would have me think
There is nowhere left to go
But I am continually encouraged
By an audience of One
I’ve been waiting for Him to say:
“I know You can do better”
Instead He draws me close
And enfolds me in His Love Letters
And inspires
Without fail
