What About Me?

You argue over words.
You argue over creeds.
You argue over faith,
But, what about Me?

You argue over life.
You argue over death.
You argue over hope.
What about My Breath?

You argue over sin.
You argue over grace.
You argue over love.
Won’t you seek My Face?

You argue over right.
You argue over wrong.
You argue over anything.
Can’t you hear My Song?

You argue over war.
You argue over peace.
You argue over worship.
Why aren’t you on your knees?

You argue over Me,
Dividing part from part,
Forgetting that you all
Belong within My Heart.

Holy Fire

Fire of God
In me burning
Through me burning
Not consuming

Who am I?
Often useless
God still chooses
He still uses me

Holy fire
Fire feed me
Fire free me
Never leave me
Fire of God

(Exodus 3)
