 a poem

Let Jesus Reveal His Life

Fire shut up in my bones
The Lord desire is born
It has found a home
Yet the harden flesh must be torn
To reveal the light

Or else He will be hidden in the shadow
Like a captured knight
Who is held from the battle
Or the bone that contains the marrow
Let Him reveal His life

For this burden beneath is so deep
Far past my selfish soul life
There He weeps and weeps
To be completely free
To reveal His pure life

from Milton
I'm a new member it's great to be among believers.

 Re: a poem

Hi millstone...

Thank you for sharing! I have written love poems and songs to the Lord for quite a while. Usually, I carry a notebook around to my classes and write whenever I feel the inspiration (or more often, passion for the Lord).

While in class one day, I had to go to the printer and wait for my lab project to be printed. A girl in the class picked up my notebook and began reading a couple of the poems that I was writing. When I arrived back to my seat, she asked me, "Hey -- who is the special girl?" I didn't know what she meant. But she told me that she had picked up my notebook, read the poems, and it brought tears to her eyes. She said that she could tell that I was passionately in love with the person for whom I wrote the song. I smiled and told her, "I wrote this for Jesus." She looked very suprised, but it opened the door to share the Lord with her.

Thank you for sharing! Perhaps we can see more in the future!

:-)

 Re:

Thank You
That was very encouraging.I hope that the poems I have written or write have that effect on people too.It's all about inspiring people to know Christ better or to seek Him out.
