“It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]…
the very words I have spoken to you are SPIRIT and LIFE.”
~ JESUS, John 6:63
O Lord, teach me of Your eternal, LIFE-breath
way with words…
His Sunday whisper to me… and maybe to you…
My heart sings over you, Come – follow Me,
like a child patterning after parent…
You are meant to learn to speak forth
light and hope and life as I do.
Through My Spirit living in you, in MY Name, call forth My LIFE
in the ACTIVE voice:
Peace! Be Still!
Mountain, move into the sea!
DECLARE the beauty and promise of your Lord against defeating lies,
as My Psalmists do…
You, O Lord, surround me with songs of deliverance!
By Your stripes, I am healed!
No weapon formed against me will succeed!
Wander no more outside the promise
but TAKE the LAND I give you.
A future and a hope.
My windows of heaven opened and pouring out more
than you can receive.
Unending Grace…abounding, flowing…
from Me to you to others.
Just as the active words of a writer move, hearten, transform,
So are My Words…in your mouth.
Living…sharper…than a two-edged sword.
Every Writer’s Rule To Breathe Life: Out, out, flat passive voice! 🙂
