POETRY: A Voice For My Soul by Anna Beth Fore

Reflections on God’s Grace and Faithfulness

A Voice For My Soul by Anna Beth Fore

From: A Voice for My Soul

O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
(Psalm 63:1)

My soul longs to speak to you, Lord,
and to share my thoughts with you.
My heart desires to know you, Lord,
and your Spirit my being imbue.

Holy Father, bless me with your words
to express my soul with a voice.
Give me words of praise and adoration,
and in my heart, let me sing and rejoice.

May my soul cry out to you, O Lord,
when I experience pain and suffering.
May your Holy Spirit speak for me
when my own words I cannot bring.

Give me words of wisdom, dear Lord,
words of discernment and spiritual insight,
words of empathy and understanding,
so that they reflect your glorious light.

Let my words speak to other people
and be a witness and a reflection of him.
May my words touch people’s hearts
and stir up their spirits within.

Thank you for giving my soul a voice,
and through words my soul is expressed.
May these words resonate with other souls,
and through them, may their lives be blessed.
