FEELING WORN OUT
Older and seemingly worn out,
Treasured efforts to embrace Wisdom over those long years,
Countless seeds of Truth planted in many
Even more watered
Yet, harvest seems lean and mostly far off;
Prophetic things deeply experienced, well understood
Israel and Jerusalem at the very heart,
But so much still to happen!
Most beautiful hand woven carpets laid with silver and gold
Stunning tapestries of sublime beauty beyond creative imagination
Royal colors and intricate designs cover the walls of time
But mankind from generation to generation still acts blinded,
Chooses to ignore the True Peace close at hand
While appetites for war and conflict, for wealth and control continue to thrive!
Discouragement with frustration plagues everyone, everywhere
Lasting beauty in pure expressions of worship scarce,
Even quality anointed songs and music become rare.
Lord, so many souls cry out
Hunger and thirst for Words to fully come alive,
The world more and more a tiresome place
Without lasting joy and gladness
Even once vibrant youthful lives waste away.
So, this man steadfastly prays before the Throne
As do many others who cry out to their Lord and God…
Then a clear Voice is discerned within-
“Rise up now and fully live the life I’ve given you
To walk in My Peace daily
To live out your days in Covenant Love,
Rejoice in who and what I’ve given you
Living Hope glows more than a large flame within your heart and soul;
You can only richly live out your own life in Oneness with Me
Your cross is carried daily, your life laid down for others in love
Spirit led, impartial and sincere,
Your rewards will be very great!
You cannot live another person’s life for them.”
And so he rises in strengthened faithfulness,
Prayerful constantly as learned from his Teacher
To live one day at a time, trusting in gracious discipline,
Confident, he walks forward hand in hand with the Shepherd
“Wisdom proven right and true by all her children.”
