My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free:

The Call

always personal
never detached
I have sought you out
from your beginning
when I formed you
in the womb
preparing you to
share My very Life
always remaining
never leaving
even when
you left Me
your own way
only to discover
futility's reward
always remembering
never forgetting
that our enemy's lies
about Me
My Bride
My ways
lead to separation
seeking fulfillment in
finite passions
when only
infinite Love can satisfy
human longing
always encouraging
never haranguing you to
leave behind
this world's allurements
which consistently fade
though incessantly promise
what they cannot deliver
yet through it all
My quiet voice
calls your name
to end your resistance
and accept My Gift
of New Life-
a pledge sealed
in Blood
by freedom's ransom from
sin's bondage-
a Risen flesh
promised as the
first fruits of
Power from above
always wooing
never forcing
even at
eternity's peril
I reach out
for you to
come home
so now
listen to My plea
for...time is short
freely I offer
freely receive
