A Rich Inheritance

Your breath of life.
Your daily presence.
Your merciful justice.
Your tender grace.
Your only begotten Son.
Your plan of salvation.
Your unending love.
Your Holy Spirit.
Your ministering angels.
Your many promises.
Your mansions for me.
Your heavenly home.
These are just a few
of the rich inheritances
You have shared with me
and my children.

Unplugging Your Pen

I can’t do it, LORD.
I just can’t stop writing.
It’s like plugging my ears to You.
You are far too exciting!
You share Your secrets
And bless me with insight.
You help me bless others
And shine Your light.
Your words pour down
Like rain on my soul,
Sometimes rushing
Like waves that roll.
How dare I miss
One single Word.
How dare I not share
What I have heard.
Your words give life.
They’re what I breathe.
Without their presence,
My soul doth seethe.
Though doubts can challenge
My obedience to You,
I must write
And share more of You!
