4-10-15 The Secret Part

oyster1

There is a secret part of you that laughs,

An inward spark of love and happiness,

Connected to the Savior, free from gaffes

Or other outward games that bring us stress.

The Lord desires the truth and all that brings,

And deep within the Holy Spirit shares

To all God’s children, not to priests and kings,

The wisdom of the ages asked through prayer.

Oh, happy soul, where Jesus loves to dwell,

Is there not any greater joy than this,

To share the gospel and save one from hell,

To see the Light come on and feel their bliss?

The secret part of you that is at peace

Was born to share the love and never cease.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts:

and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

Psalm 51:6 KJV

7-3-14 Delight (a Sonnet)

delight

Your will is my delight, O Lord above!

Each waking is a trek through Your desire!

I stroll through the sweet garden of Your love

And feel Your spirit’s power draw me higher.

Dear Abba, Your instruction rests within

The inner sanctum of my eager heart.

I see at once the way I should begin

And move with confidence right from the start.

I surely know Your voice and heed Your call

Because I long to please Your ev’ry wish.

My God! This child of Yours does give my all,

And with Your happiness will come my bliss!

This ecstasy can’t help but overflow

Into the world around me with Your glow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I delight to do Your will, my God;

Your instruction lives within me.

Psalm 40:8 HCS
