I love me some Aliza Latta! She is the sweetest thing. She has sure a pure heart and passion for Jesus and people. I was beyond excited when she announced that she wanted to start a Link Up called Let Us Create. this will be a space where artists can share their poetry, fiction, screenplays, songs, whatever. I have been writing poetry long before this blogging life, for 20 years actually. I have shared my poems with some of my friends but never publicly. So, I am thrilled to do that for the first time here!
This a poem I write a few years ago but I want it to characterize all of my writing. My prayer is that all of you will see past me straight to Christ. May this ring true in each of your lives as well.
Let me be lost in the fullness of Your presence
And found in the extravagance of Your grace
Let me be guided by the truth of Your Word
And dwell in the depths of You love
Let me proclaim the power of Your name
And shout of the freedom in Your Spirit
Most of all, let me gaze upon Your face
And point others to the cross of Christ
