TITLE: The Author of Such Things

When I struggle with the words I am desperate to convey,
When my ability to formulate those words seems to slip away,
I will pause to ask my Creator, who is the Author of such things,
"Show me, Lord, Your creativity and the freedom which it brings".

God has never had the challenge of lacking a creative word,
Evidenced throughout the scriptures, His words are clearly heard.
In the beginning, He spoke of things unseen and not yet to be,
His faith-filled words brought forth wondrous life in all its beauty.

Creative words have always flowed powerfully from His heart,
His prose with its ebbs and flows are truly a work of art.
In those moments when I can't seem to find the words to write,
I'll ask my Lord to make available all His creative might.

Biblical stories are riveting when touched by His creative flare,
I hang on to every word, envisioning that I'm there.
The stories which flow from inspiration given by our God,
Bring forth hope and faith and mercy in each and every Word.

Whether reading a parable our Lord told to the massive crowds,
Or reading of a people who brought great walls tumbling down,
Each divinely written Word was a gift to Biblical authors indeed,
God's inspiration in their skills they did wisely heed.

So when I struggle with the words I desperately want to say,
When I am challenged I'll remember to stop and to pray.
I'll ask my Creator to inspire once again the stories which I pen,
In hopes my God-breathed words will touch a life for Him.

Nice theme and consistent thoughts. I share with you similar thoughts while writing.

The rhythm is off and a few words do not rhyme, but you can smooth that out with a tad bit of editing. Also I think shortening the lines would make for a cleaner read.

Suggestion for the rhyme in this line: "...crowds,
Or reading of a people who brought great walls tumbling down,"...instead [Or the tumbling of great walls by people so proud]? The last two lines need a better rhyme also. Blessings.
