My Desire

My Desire “1I will confess and praise You [O God] with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praises to You. 2I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!” Psa 138:1-2 AMP My Desire is to reveal God’s love and power And to exalt His word and name; To bring glory to our risen Savior Not to be in any hall of fame. I desire to protect my Lord’s reputation, And make known to all His lavish love; To praise His name above all names, And delight in His peace and joy from above. My Desire is to uplift my Savior, Who died so humble and obedient, So He may save this one lost world, So ungracious and willfully defiant. May those who receive an abundance of grace And heaven's gift of righteousness, Reign in life through their Savior And demonstrate His loving kindness. My Desire is to reveal God’s promises To those who feel weak, That they might be strengthened, Because His word they now seek. May my readers find their Savior And experience His mighty power; May they reach out for His mercy When the roaring lion attempts to devour. My Desire is that we are all thankful For the Father and the Son. Thankful that both would deem us worthy To sacrifice so much that our redemption be won. Thankful for the Holy Spirit And the numerous gifts of heaven; Thankful for God’s tender mercies And His abundant love so graciously given. Copyright © 2012 Maureen LeFanue

    Reading your poem has been a wonderful way to start my day. I have been feeling under the weather. This has been very uplifting. I believe I read somewhere that you have a book of poetry. If so, is it available online? Have a blessed day, Rhonda:)
