Topic: Sellout (05/26/11)

TITLE: Priceless
By LaToya Freeman


Your love has set me free. Bond in this world with no set goals you covered me. Fearlessly I ran in darkness, thinking that I was my own. Carelessly I played with fire, assuming myself all alone. Then you sent your Servant Father, "I want her now" you said. "Tell her once to come to me, wake her from the dead!" "ARISE!" You said to my lone spirit, move OUT of the way! "Die!" you said to my earthly body, "let Me live instead." I screamed, I kicked, then I thought I was better and Lord how you humbled me! I couldn't believe the places you were leading, but yet I said "Lord, I agree". I praised you when I didn't know the next step to take. "Be still" you said "hold on my daughter, let me number the steps you make". So now I sprint to the place that You order, Lord YOUR will be done. I fight no flesh because with YOUR Spirt ALL my victories are won! REJOICE!! I scream out. HALLELUJAH!! Praise to your name my king. Why? They ask me, why do you do that? and I say for HIM I sing. GLOOORRRRYYYY TO THE HIGH KING! HALLELUJAH! I say once more. Keep your cars, promotions, critiques and money because I've been paid for. By HIS blood I was ransomed, THE BATTLE IS WON!! My bond has been paid. He came down and died on Golgotha he cried out, even before we were made! So REJOICE! I tell you, SCREAM HALLELUJAH!! For OUR God is alive! He's not dead on the cross, he is at the right hand interceding for us so that we can live in this earth and thrive. NO COST! I scream as they try to obtain me, to take me back to where I came. I'm SOLD OUT for Jesus so don't try to buy me, there's no price for his name.

Glory to God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HALLELULJAH!!

This has a wonderful prayer like quality to it. It would be visually easier to read if it had more separations,

Powerful communication. Lifted my spirit. As was mentioned would read easier if formatted differently. That plus being on topic, 'Sellout,' would make it a winner.

This is a powerful point. I know in the forums there was a warning about the difference in sellout and sold out. But you managed to bring them together quite nicely. Your writing flows and your desire to spread the love and news about Jesus stands out.

great writing :-)

With the evident rhyme throughout, this seems as if it is a poem and would have presented better in a more traditional poetic format. So much harder to read the way it is and that lessens its power.

I too think the topic of your work is more “sold out” than “sellout” (sellout when applied to a person generally denotes a betrayer or traitor)

But that being said, I really did enjoy the poem, it has a lot of vision and power and emotion and I hope to see it presented in better form to show it off!

Priceless truths, but a little breathless for your readers - who will benefit from your giving us a little more space to fully absorb and reflect on your invitation and to respond to your challenge. Keep writing to God's glory.
