Lead Me

Steady this hand

As it hovers over this paper

Guide it O Lord

Don’t let it go astray

 

May every stroke

Each flourish

Point towards You

And to nothing else

 

As the ink flows

From the pen to the paper

May Your Spirit flow

Through me to the world

 

Your Words forged the first ray of light

Gave life to every living cell

They are filled with Your amazing power

Let every word I write come from You

A Writer’s Desire

Like a waterfall the words flow

Tumbling out of my heart

There is no force that can hold them back

Nothing can contain this urge to create

 

The desire burns inside me

My heart glows like a hot iron

Passion pumping through me – my life blood

Every day it burns brighter

 

So I place my words on a boat

And push it off from the shore

I feel my heart lurch as they float away

Knowing they are gone forever

 

A brief moment of respite

And then back to the coal face

The passion is still there

There is much work yet for me to do
