A Place Within My Heart

Post by DeaconSteve » Sun May 15, 2016 6:01 pm

Sometimes I am tired, weary, and heavy burdened
and as this comes, I know what I must do
I must go to a place deep within my heart, Lord
to be in the presence and alone with only You!

But first, I must close the door to this world
that lingers about and causes me much unrest
the moral decay that is sweeping this nation
Yet, is seems to go unchallenged by so many
who seem to lack any incentive to put it to rest.

I must close the door to the political clamor and upheaval
that is dividing many people across all spectrums of this land
lowering themselves to a place that does not merit any good
taunting, cursing, angry voices, beneath the dignity of any man.

I must close the door to the violence and death
that is plaguing Christians from around the earth
by deranged people of a cult born from evil's claws
no fear of retribution as they slaughter young
children Lord, even those who were just given birth!

Now that I am present at this place within my heart
In silence I come to You Lord, to whisper my prayer
To seek the strength and grace, to fill my empty self
that I might find the energy and desire to continue
this journey as Your lowly servant, to bring to others
a renewed heart, peace, and reassurance that You care.

I come to You as the sinner that I am, broken and in need
The well has gone a bit dry, and can only be refilled by You
For all that I ever was and all that I am, I give to You this day
This place in my heart, I seek to resolve the clutter and emptiness
that has dragged me down, and to You I come to be renewed.

I do not come alone, for I also bring the hearts of those many
who are weary and burdened, facing uncertainties of their own,
trying to cope with the claw's of evil, by praying Lord to Thee.
Only in the heart of Your merciful love dear Lord Jesus
can we ever find the solace that we need and clear vision to see!

Rejuvenate my heart, mind and soul, that Your truths I may proclaim
in the ordinariness that each day brings, to those who feel subdued
We will only find the comfort and peace that we seek, not in the world
but only if we merge our wills with Yours, and put our trust in only You.

Lord, each day is a challenge I know, but it is also an opportunity
to reach out in love to share with others the intimacy of Your Love.
To realize that we are only human, and that You are always there
to show me how better to serve You; You who reign in heaven above!

I know that there is no joy without pain, there is no easy path in life to walk
Learning is a lifetime endeavor and following You Lord Jesus is forever
I know that good and evil exist side by side, and that evil is often disguised
in the ways of the world as something good, but a disciple knows that it is never.

You are all that is good, Your heart of love is always there for all to claim
You will not turn away anyone who repents for their sins; who wants a new start
I know that I am just a lowly servant, renewed and energized to continue on
that when I am down and out, I can always find You in this place within my heart!

Thank you, dear Steve, for sharing this beautiful prayer poem. It spoke to that "place within my heart", reminding me of God's great love for me and His continual presence and working in my life, and challenges me to be more responsive to the leading of His Spirit in all that I am and all that I do. An inspiring, comforting blessing to start my day this Monday morning. May God God continue to bless you and empower you with ways and opportunities to speak to and encourage the hearts of others.
Your friend and sister in Christ always, Shirley
