Within the Ink

Within the ink lies a message
That God wants me to speak.
It might be a message to encourage the strong,
Or a message to strengthen the weak.
It might be a message that says He cares,
Or that He is displeased with deeds.
It might be a message that says He’s listening
To all who call while on their knees.
It might be a message for someone specific,
Or intended just for me.
But whatever the message is He’s sending,
My pen will let it be.
For my hand obeys the Master who made it,
And serves within every word.
I pray that Your ears and mind obey also,
And serve in having heard.
