He Thirsted for Me

gaillovesgodspoetry

The Lord thirsted for me
To choose to abide,
To pause and linger
At His precious side.
He thirsted for conversation
Having my full attention,
Hanging on every word,
Listening with intention.
He thirsted for my presence,
And to look into my eyes,
To see my inner child smile
With gasps and sighs.
He thirsted to feel me near,
Leaning in awe and wonder,
Resting in the assurance
That none could tear us asunder.
He thirsted for my heart
To shelter His in mine,
To tell me He loves me,
And leaves me peace of mind.

Oceanic Praise

gaillovesgodspoetry

There is a flowing ebb
Right before my eyes.
It dances with the horizon,
And paints the dramatic skies.
There is a sailing wind
That gusts upon the tide.
It thrusts the raging seas
Into a boisterous ride.
There is a lingering howl
That bemoans the parting moon.
Lulling each bewailing heave
Into a gentle murmuring croon.
How intimate the vast expanse
Offers it’s proper praise
To the Creator of heaven and firmament
Adorned in splendid array.

Summoned Out of the Fire

gaillovesgodspoetry

Summoned out of the Fire
By the one who threw me in.
God has been walking with me.
He has been my defense.
Though the flames danced around me,
He taught me to dance with Him.
The enemy has exercised power,
But God was more powerful than them.
No stain, no hint, no smell of smoke
Touched me or caused me hurt.
He loosed me from my bondage
Without ever saying a word.
God sent His angel to me
The precious Son of God.
He has summoned the doors to open.
He leads with staff and rod.
The Burning Bush on the Mountain
Is an all Consuming Fire.
He turns the flames of His enemies
Into an ancient pyre.
