Faith and Fire

I am the cup – this is a poem I wrote during this time that I am labeling “a spiritual rollercoaster.” A time where faith has to stand the fire, and hope has to lead the trail from your heart to your mind. A common mis conception in Christianity is that we are always hopeful or always happy even in the face of opposition. But the truth is that even with God there are times of pain and anguish. During those times God requires our honesty, so that He can intern exchange our hurt for healing. But it all starts with the truth. Enjoy.

Isaiah 61

1)The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, [1]

2)to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

3) and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

I am your cup

Empty and breakable

Desiring to be held by your Spirit 

And sipped by the lips of peace

But times are changing, and I am

empty

Desolate…

left

Waiting

For a want , desire, use

I am in every home, every shelf

Waiting to be place in the hand of inspiration

To serve is my purpose

To be whole is my calling

Lift me

Fill me

Wash me

Use me

I am your cup
