Scenic Wakefield, Rhode Isalnd




I am yours…


am I doing as you will?

Am I tender to your Spirit?

Am I speaking the words you’d desire me to speak-

to those you desire for me to speak it?

Am I writing the words you’d have me to write, to share? Do I dare?

Am I praying enough?

Am I renewing my mind in your Word and Holiness enough to make a difference; even to sustain my faith in this dried up corner of your world?

Am I awake

to the possibilities you orchestrate,

or am I blind, deaf and mute?

Am I distracted by the circumstances surrounding my life?

Am I drowning in a sea of selfishness and sin that I refuse to surrender,

that I cleave to like dust?

Lord, is there Love in me, today?

Yes, but there must be, for have you not entered me,

made me a dwelling place, your home in my heart?

Or have I left you standing at the door,

knocking, ever knocking-


Have I shunned my only hope?

Lord, you alone satisfy-

Why would I,

having tasted your goodness,

seek  fruit in orchards of destruction?

Can fruit of the vine abide

apart from it’s life source?


Nor I,

apart from you.

For in you I live and move and have my being-

satisfied forever in your presence alone,


Forever and Ever, Amen.
