A gift...

To write
With pen or quill

To be used
And not hidden away

To put words on the paper
According to His will

To be treasured
And honed for His honor

For others' blessing
And encouragement

One not given lightly
It comes with responsibility




A responsibility...

To write
When He gives inspiration

To use our words
For good and not evil

To use the gift He has given
To lift up, not tear down

To write for justice
And not abuse

To show
The inhumanity of man

To enlighten
And lighten a load

To reveal
The secrets of God

To touch
The untouchable with His love

To reach
The unreachable for His glory

To encourage
As we have been encouraged

To strengthen
As we have been strengthened

To bless
As we have been blessed

To comfort
As we have been comforted

To use quill and ink
For His glory and not our own

To meet needs
Our own and those of others




A need...

To express truth
Based on God's Word

To reveal ourselves
In humility

To lead
The way to God

To show
The path of fairness

To give
What He has given

To influence
The world for Christ

To put pen to paper
Expressing God's heart

To fulfill
The purpose for which we were sent




God's children must show mercy
In all that they have penned,
For mercy is what feeds His heart,
His heart of love for men.

This reminds me of the prayer of St. Francis Make me a Channel of Your Peace. And to this beautiful poem I simply say AMEN
