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: genefirn@yahoo.com

Magis

dissatisfied with the lesser
craving the greater
He is calling you
onward and upward
beyond your limitations and
estimated boundaries of success
a way of proceeding rooted in
Grace's foundation and
ongoing transformation
a dependency following the
mere gestures of the Master
whom you desperately pursue
spurred on by the Spirit to
seek His Holiness
His Will to be
set apart for His Purposes to
bring His Love
His Saving Word to
lost souls
tortured by sin
living-out the deception that
this world will bring them the
fulfillment for which they yearn
a fanciful happiness rather than
that which only Jesus can bring
as they die to self-centeredness
yielding to self-sacrificial Love
it is in seeking the more that
His Kingdom rises from the
ashes of the Offering with
which you have entwined yourself
His Mission is your mission
your daily concern
which makes
knowing your own
strengths
weaknesses
values
goals
even more critical to go
higher up
further on
deeper into
His Passion to bring
Mercy to the sinner
Light to those in darkness
Healing to the wounded
Meaning to the seeker
Life to the dying
Love to the lovelorn
Vision to the blind
Glory to the enslaved
indeed
there are greater needs
greater challenges out there
requiring even
greater desires
greater goals and the
"what if's" of
Passionate Love
More
with foot raised
ready to proceed
detached from your
former ways
familiar fears
limitations of vision
unfettered from
this world's allurements
poised to creatively
win the race of
Life v Death
Magis
your heroic calling

Reflection/Discussion:
-What does "Magis" mean?
-How could living by "Magis" change your perspective?
-How can "Magis" affect your prayer life? Service? Marriage? Work? Evangelistic outreach?
