Faith Pioneering, Prophetic Poetry

Box Free!

A view from heaven

I am not a word that I would stay in a book,

Or a book itself that I would stay on a shelf.

Hem Me in and I’ll break out,

Lock Me in and I’ll break free,

Try to imprison Me yet I’ll be free in no time.

You can’t lock Me into the past,

Just try keeping Me out of the present,

Try guarding Me from the future and you’ll fail every time.

Don’t try locking Me into your mind,

I hate small, confined spaces!

My playground is the wide-open spaces,

You can’t put Me in a box!

I roam free and I roam far,

I love what is small and large..

…all things and all people.

I am not a scent to be kept in a bottle,

Not a polish kept in a tin,

I am all things, to all things,

The beginning and the end,

I created them all.

I could put you in a box,

Hem you in and control you,

Yet I created you for myself,

Not as a plaything to use and abuse.

To be just like Me.

To run free, work and create,

Love others in bubbles of joy,

Not be in a box.

Think big, not small,

Flowing with My Spirit.

So, do not:

Be put in a box, confined to tight structures,

Think according to your own mind,

Be constrained by the past,

Be locked into things

Become stagnant.

And do:

Run with My Spirit,

Renew your mind in My word,

Lean into the future,

Delight in Me, not in things,

And flow in My eternal river.

A Life of Refreshing

“You give them drinks from your river of delights.” (Psalm 36:8)

God

You are the freshness in my life.

A flowing River of Delights through all seasons.

That constantly nourishes my soul.

As I thirst after our togetherness.

Thank you!

Autumn Leaves – workwithgodblog.co.uk

A prophetic poem for an expectant church

Autumn leaves, Fallen and discarded, They lie crestfallen and dirty. Their wondrous colours fading into the night. Silent and dead they appear, When all ‘ a sudden they’re woken! They stir, float and fly, are diligently gathered and powerfully charged With Love’s passionate zeal. A riotous throng, tumultuous…

Prophetic Poetry

Unlimited Increase

It’s not the noisy things we shout
That reflect God’s whereabouts.
But the small, quiet tones.
10%, that’s all we own.

Then God ‘writes’ His-story,
90% of the glory.
Unlimited increase,
Wonders unleashed.

“A small thing is a small thing,
but faithfulness in
the small things is a great thing.”

Each Day

Bald Eagle flying and hunting

I wake and worship

Am lifted up and soar

Higher and higher

 

I hover, fluttering

Eagerly expectant

Then he comes

 

Holy Spirit carries me away

I’m riding his thermal wave

And so we begin another day

Deep calls to deep

A prophetic poem declaring alignment with Father

He is quiet, I am quiet.
He is still, I am still.
He is at rest, I am at rest.
I am as He is.
Why would I be any different?

He rises up, I rise up.
He soars on high, I with Him.
He consoles the poor, I too.
He defines justice, me with Him.

Then again He is quiet, me too.
Together in perfect unity.
He’s not stressed, I’m not stressed.
He’s not in a hurry, neither am I.

The sweetest thing

Living on the edge,
On the road less travelled,
God’s Presence is the sweetest thing.
He upholds me,
Gives me strength,
And keeps me from falling.

I find rock beneath my feet,
Where none is usually found.
Supplies along the way,
And gifts wrapped just for me.
It’s a personal thing.
Treasures without end….

The invitation

From the known to the unknown,
We stand at the Frontier.
Pioneers on the threshold of a new landscape,
Invited in by God’s Holy Presence.

‘Leave behind the old and come into the new.
Fear not the unknown for I am with you,
To lead and guide you into what I already know,
And have indeed prepared for you.’

For the best is yet to come!
The battles are already won.
Everything’s possible to the Highest Level,
Where Victory sits enthroned.

And His name is Jesus.

Unfolding Day

Allow your day to unfold like the pages of a book.

Trusting in God to lead you safely through.

Remaining centred in His love and peace.

You’ll gently bless all you meet.
