A NEW MAN
As the sun rises faithfully
And dramatic colors streak across the sky
Eyes brighten as the day becomes suddenly richer and fuller,
A breath of fresh air fills the lungs
While a light breeze moves around the body
New strength invigorates
The mind so much clearer
Creative thoughts easily move and even laugh
The New Wine of eternal gladness surges
Gives a refreshing taste of true goodness!
Things weren’t always so
But the former things are not remembered
Those that echo within become lesser,
Some thoughts even amplified by the enemy
Cut down quickly by the “sword of the Spirit”!
A flow of new language of praise begins
Smooth, peaceful words of worship
Continual thanksgiving offered as arms uplifted
In the discipline of true sacrifices
New Covenant gifts of love set before the Great High Priest
The Holy King upon His throne.
As one of many ministers, servants as priests of the Lord
Another day to eat the “Living Bread” of the written Word
To drink sacred Living Water
A day to live out the life of love given
To plant and water seeds generously
To pray continually as a delight
To reach into any mess of humanity
And return clean hands, healing for all,
The will to serve burns as a torch.
The eyes of a disciple
Fire eyes of a man of God,
He stands strong and confident
Fearless in battle
His eyes see very far in wisdom
Deep, calm pools even with a crying baby
Cradled safely in his arms.
