My Spirit


(this poem can actually be sung to the melody of Have Thine Own Way)

mind of my spirit - teach me today

now I beseech you - teach me to pray

ears of my spirit - let me hear

Jesus's footsteps - He is near

eyes of my spirit - open for me

to see my Savior - oh, let it be

feet of my spirit - don't fail me now

take me to Jesus - take me somehow

heart of my spirit - open wide

please, Jesus enter - come inside

hands of my spirit - lift high in praise

ready to praise You - my hands I raise

voice of my spirit - teach me to speak

though I am humble - lowly and meek

others must know, dear - others must know

My love for others - you must show

teach them to love me - teach them today

so lost and lonely - show them the way

It's imperative to sing these words instead of just reading them to get the full effect of the message.  I'd love to know what you think!

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
