If only we could become more open in our sharing.
If only I had prayed and asked the Spirit to use me.
I could have prayed for you, for the Spirit to heal your bruising.
I could have reached out more, focus my thoughts upon choosing.
I could have been discreet, and asked you, rather than excusing.
Things I saw as “unsettling” were merely symptoms of your pain.
Things between us were not close, I was not really looking again.
Things the Spirit wanted to teach me, things that I desire to attain.
A much closer walk with God, to pray, and have Him talk to me.
A “Hot Line” to Heaven, so when we both share I can really see
A friend I love so much, who is hurting yet does not want to be.
The focus of attention, yet does really need to focus upon Thee.
The child of God who has lost her way, trapped, no longer free.
The pain you feel is the pain of one who is lonely, lost at sea..
For I pray to God for words, that will bring you back home to Him.
For a child of God who is lost, just does not know where to begin.
For the weight of unconfessed sin is clearly an anathema so grim.
Now clearly you need to repent, and don’t forget, He is waiting too.
Now is the accepted time for the Holy Spirit will readily show you.
Now is the beginning of all things new, He has work for you to do.
- James 1: 21-25 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his own way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But who so looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
- Proverbs 6:23 ~ For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:”
