Stamp of Approval

Stamp of Approval

God has given me a purpose,
He has given me a plan.
A poet’s road I’m on,
And this is where I stand.

The Holy Spirit guides me,
Gives occasion for my rhyme.
Inspiration comes at will,
Morn, noon, and evening time.

The subjects, they are varied,
But what I write the most,
Is speaking of Lord Jesus,
And how He draws us close.

I’ve learned that I must write
All prompts that come to mind.
For if I do this faithfully,
A poem’s soon designed.

I try not to force a poem,
But gently do I seek
A way to say the words
In my heart that want to speak.

I truly do believe
That all saints receive a gift.
To strengthen up Christ’s church,
And to other people lift.

Do not deny its calling.
You’ll know that it’s His will.
For once God stamps approval,
He will bless and surely fill.

Scripture references:
1Peter 4:10-11 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
