Oh – Yes!

No! – To the one.
No! – To the two.
No! – To the evil
I found in you.

No! – To the lies.
No! – To your ways.
No! – To the hell of
Your coming days.

Yes – oh yes – yes to my God.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He’s got.
Yes – oh yes – to the day I shall see.
Yes – oh yes – to the soul I can be.

No! – To the lover.
No! – To the friend.
No! – To the someone
Who brings me my end.

No! – To the knife.
No! – To the pain.
No! – To the sorrow
That brings me my rain.

Yes – oh yes – yes to my God.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He’s got.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He holds.
Yes – oh yes – to the story I’m told.

No! – To the world.
No! – To the game.
No! – To your races.
Erase my name.

No! – To your fight.
No! – To your war.
No! – To the burdens
Of my heart before.

Yes – oh yes – yes to my God.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He’s got.
Yes – oh yes – to the day I shall see.
Yes – oh yes – to the soul I can be.

The Pen Flows

The pen flows…
the ink along.
It pens a poem
and then a song.
The hand does write
upon the pad,
a little joy,
a little sad.
The words do form
in what you read.
Does it please
or meet a need?
Take from it
what you will.
Endless joy
or nothing to feel.

Jesus’ Song for Gail (taken from Song of Solomon 3)

1. By night [from heaven] I sought [Gail], but I found [Gail] not.
2. I will rise now, and go about the [earth to and fro], I will seek [Gail] whom my [Spirit] loveth: I sought [Gail], but I found [Gail] not.
3. The [angels] that go about the [earth] found me: to whom I said, Saw ye [Gail] whom my [Spirit] loveth?
4. It was but a little that I passed from there, but I found [Gail] whom my [Spirit] loveth: I held [Gail], and would not let [Gail] go, until I had brought [Gail] into my [Father’s] house, and into the [presence] of [the Holy Ghost] that conceived me.
5. I charge ye, O ye [children of God running about tending to God’s harvest] that ye stir not up, nor awake [Gail], till [Gail] please.
6. Who is this that cometh [through the fiery trials of her life shining with the light of God upon her]?
7. Behold [Gail lays upon her bed], a [host of angels] are about it, of [the angels of God].
8. They all had swords, being expert in war: every [angel] hath his sword upon his thigh [to protect Gail from things of the night].
9. [Gail is a vessel of the Lord].
10. [Gail is made of God, and is adorned with God’s mercy and grace, so that Gail can carry God’s love for all of God’s children].
11.Go forth, O ye [children of God], and behold [Gail] with the [glory] wherewith [Gail’s Father glorified Gail] in the day of [Gail’s salvation], and in the day of gladness of [Gail’s] heart.

This poem does not belong to me or anyone, yet it is written for every single one of us! It is Song of Solomon Chapter 3 of the Bible. I merely placed my name wherever the word was talking about me (us). Please take a moment, when the Lord allows, to replace my name with yours to read the love your beloved Savior has for you! It is the most beautiful love letter! ❤
