No More Rote, Now, I Take Note : A Freewrite

in esteem •  5 months ago 

Told to jot down the note
No paper in sight, I begin to rote
Pinching myself, holding my cloth
Still, this, I don't know.
Told to read my Bible every morning
I did, read and read, found no meaning
Meditate they say, practice what you read
I stood up, found my they've left me.
Christ, come quickly, help me
To keep your word at heart, practice it
A life lived outside of your Holy writing
A life of futility I was told it will be.
So I kept my mind fixed
On Christ's word I stand
This law of the law I'll practice
And became an heavenly band.
Now taking note, inspirations
No more rote, I've got illuminations
A leisure of prayer, a moment of the word
Closer and closer, I move to God.
Praising my saviour, my God
The Father who will never leave His son
Till eternity I'll praise His name
To Him be all the praise.
