Here I AM

Miss Misunderstood
Sitting alone in the flame
That’s most days

They look
They think they know
But haven’t a clue

The pain
The crosses
The sacrifices made

The cost of it all
Overwhelms and engulfs
Swallowing me whole

They see only joy
Never sorrow
Foolishly thinking I have it all

I want to run
And to hide
All at the same time

To the mountains or the jungle
Upon the ocean waves
And foreign lands

Surrender is key
For mediocrity and playing is safe
Will no longer do

It suffocates every breath
As death hovers above
And howls below

For it’s adventure
Fearlessness and cliff diving
That feeds a weary soul

An antidote for madness
And holy discontent

It looks reckless
And careless
Who cares

There’s one life to live
One highway to authentic joy
And one staircase to heaven

They will reject, and persecute
Ridicule and laugh
Ignorance is bliss

Mostly they haven’t a clue
A fire hose of salt
To old wounds

An unredeemed soul
Shuttering to a quake
Beneath an aching heart

It’s un-lived life
That can never be grasped
Or capture again

Chances missed and passed
A voice whispers
Love is the cure

From the smiles
The hugs and kisses
Of the little ones

He knows it’s heaven I seek
So He wakes me
In the dark

And stillness of the night
I wait
I wonder

I cry out
Where are you
I can’t see you

Or hear you
What do you want me to do
I am here

I do know not the way
No directions
No sign posts

But one burning bush
In the middle
Where the water flows

He’s calling me back
No logic needed
No rational

Sheer thought exhausts
Plans, schedules, checklists
Who needs it all

Not me I say
Only one response will suffice
A resounding…Yes

For it’s not my ability He seeks
But my availability
I will go Lord

If you lead me
I will go
And not look back

What that means
I do not know
But I will go

There’s no life
In those old nets
So I will go Lord

I’m all in
For you alone
I will go….

And because I don’t do anything with out a little worship music.

  1. These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages. They will pick up serpents [with their hands], and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”…they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs. Matthew 16: 17-18, 20

    Spread the Holy Fire everywhere you go Lisa! Keeping you covered in prayer as you minister to God’s people where ever you find them as you journey this summer. {Hugs}
