I first shared this poem in 2017. I wrote my goal for the poem centered around helping 0thers by inspiring gifts of the Spirit in our lives of light, love, help, faith, and giving. I hope it blesses you today.
What Happens When I Invite
Others into my Troubled, Writing Life
I walked among the helpless, the homeless.
I reached out with hands, light radiating from my soul.
Christ spread His arms on a Cross.
He set the supreme example.
We walk this earth in hurt.
We walk this earth overcome, pushed down, and downtrodden.
Prophet Buddha taught that when we seek the Good, the Holy, we find truth and love.
Our Lord and Savior Christ taught to do to the least of them.
His love is a seed.
We can plant it in our hearts and radiate hope and truth.
It is up to us to seek the love and higher paths toward Christ and His truth.
I wish everyone would seek His love and His help.
His fruit tastes so supple and luxurious, sweetness that drips into your heart and spreads through your limbs.
He can change lives.
He can bring help, change, and love that passes all understanding.
My Morning Prayer: Act Write, Help Others
I take off in His sunlight this morning.
I spread my wings like a butterfly.
Fluttering in the rays of love and beauty.
I fly over battlefields; my heart wants to pour out the light that bursts from my soul.
That overwhelms my senses.
How do we heal? How do we help? How do we offer hope, love, and truth to a battle-scarred people?
How we reach the heights and seek the realms of truth, love, and peace?
God is my Help.
His strengths lift me to new love, new hope.
I praise Him, from whom my Help Comes.
Something is taking root in my soul this morning.
I see this tree growing in a wilderness, all alone.
Deep roots stretch into the dark earth.
The leaves glisten in the sunlight.
The sweet branches reach toward Heaven.
Its sturdy bough doesn’t break.
Its roots grow as they reach underground streams of divine waters that cascade
And flow through the earth with force and might.
I tap into this inner strength and sure up my soul.
Sure up my life, sure up my faith, sure up my Help.
I praise Him! He comes in and wipes away my doubts and tears and fears.
He is my Lord, My Hope, My Sure Love, and Help.
