This so speaks to now yet God gave it to me in 2005!
If you are feeling the same, do not despair! God is at hand!
“A vehement flame of fire will I make My one desire.
A flame that burns and burns till it becomes a great pyre.
For night after night He brings, love songs that He sings
And in my ears a great treasure He brings.
Longing for Him grew dim for My heart had grown faint
Worldly cares and enemy’s dares taunted me and my mind did taint
And all around was the din of the fray
Of changing times and much DELAY.
I tired for want of seeing His face
I felt so alone and longed so much for the GRACE
To see Him again and to feel His sweet touch
The longing so long and delay became too much.
I lost strength in the battle
And felt like so much chattel.
I forgot the many times of treasured talk He gave.
My heart seemed to move closer to the grave.
The season was so long and so dry,
All my heart could do is weep and cry.
I longed for my Lover and I thought I would die
When suddenly there was a sign of life again nearby.
I knew He’d always been there for He promised never to leave
But in my heart I was sorely grieved
For I longed for that wonder, that awe to behold
And I wanted again to taste of Him and be BOLD.
His sweetness is always around when in need
But I longed for more and more in my need.
I knew He had more, and my heart was a rush
To see what He would do in the midst of the hush.
“I’m making you a flame”, He said from His heart
“I’m making you a flame, so you will start
A fire in the hearts of others you will see
A fire in their hearts that will make them think of ME.
I’m the ONE above all they need to know
And I’m the One who has power for them to grow!
I’m needing an army that will not back down you see
I’m needing an army to GO for ME.
I’m love and I’m kindness, I’m hope amidst the fray.
I’m peace and I’m joy and I’m justice in this day!
I’ll love you forever and by your side will I stay!
I’ll put an end to the madness and to the enemy I’ll repay.
I’ll repay his deceit with many a miracle, sign and wonder,
To his minions, will My voice THUNDER!
A final blast of the trumpet will I blow
To that last enemy; death, will I throw
Down in the pit will he go and no longer know
The pleasure of stealing My sheep from their glow.
For JOY will fill every heart in the nations
That longs for the KING and with HIM wants relations!”
