A Voice in the Wilderness

On this race
with evil foes to face
i cry one desire
and watch me blaze with fire
to You i look up on
to You I hope and wait
and i will be new
with wounds from many to few
watch me be renewed
a dwindling spark to a blazing flame
and even in these heavy rains
watch me burn in flames
now to You i look
its me, the one You took
from the grounds that shook

i may have fell
and have too many stories to tell
and as i see You smile
telling me not to worry
since thats not what You sell
“as clear as crystal
as white as clouds
and as tender as them
thats who you are to Me”
tired and weary
faced down on the mud
with rain to wash the dirt
of pain and filth

i look upon You
as you took me up for You
now i hope and wait
for You to lift this weight
and I will be new
see my wounds from many to few
and watch me stand up renewed

Hi marco,

How are you? Please can i suggest something, and hope that it will not be rude?
I really think you should let more people see your poetry…have you ever tried posting on this website(faithwriters.com)? thay have weekly contests, and this week’s topic is “great”.. i have never participated, and i don’t know, if inspiration comes i might write something for this week’s challenge…Just thought you might want to know…

I completely relate when yo utalk about darkness that threatens to take over…I am just wondering sometimes if the christianit ywe share is the same… at times i talk about jesus in a poem and other christians kind of shrug it off like “who cares…” it’s almost like Jesus has his place, at church, at bible studies, but not in our heart, talking about him with passion makes me look like a freak…

Anyway, i am what you might call a new chrsitian, and many older christians told me my excitement was just a period of ‘honeymoon” and that i would somehow find a middle place with and live a quiet christianity…that is just not me….

I feel God has started something i nmy heart that will not die away, and i will keep on going , with His strength…

I had my ‘coming out’ as a christian last week, when i made the address of my blog public to friends and relatives, and i have been called so many weird manes since then..a few friends stick around just to find out exactly how weird i have become, others have never given any sign…but i don’t care: This has been so liberating to me, and now i don’t feel like i have to be a christian in hiding…

Well, did not mean t omake it this long…

For how long have you been a christian?

Take care.
christelle
