Place – Five Minute Friday

I am so excited to join in with the Five Minute Friday community again. It’s been a long long time since I’ve taken part!!

Kate said: “place”. So, here we go. A poem on the word “place” … that took me a little longer than 5 minutes 😅.

 

Psalm 34:4 ESV

Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
   and let us exalt his name together!

 

PLACE

That little girl who knew her place at the table.

 

“Magnify Me, Anna

Fan the flame

I’ve set ablaze

In you.”

 

My eyes are closed

Mesmerized

Soaking

In this worship, known.

 

Pouring out my heart

In journalled prayers

In tears upon

Your lettered Words.

 

My hands I’m raising high

Surrounded by so many

But oblivious

To the world around.

 

Old letters reading

My father penned

Speaking of this child

I’ve long forgotten.

 

Of songs she wrote

Her childlike own

To magnify her LORD

In tongue now foreign.

 

Of dancing lost in Spirit-joy

Of singing solo

Trembling

Into confidence.

 

Of loving books

Of “marvellous” stories

Penning

In such confidence.

 

Oh, yes, LORD

I’ll fan the flame

Magnify

Your breath in me.

 

I promise I will sing again

In full abandon dance

And weep again

In confidence pen the many stories

In faithfulness

You’re birthing.

 

I will share

Of Your uncovering

And covering

No longer my dross 

In shame return to cling

But Your flaming gold

Now live

Declare.

 

Believing You

Have more for me

More than

Crumbs I sought

More than hiding shunned

Believing myself, mistake

You’d penned.

 

For now I know  

You call me come

My purposed place

In confidence to take

The many waiting hands

In Spirit clothed

Already known

To clasp and hold.

 

Yes,

I will pursue again

Trusting

In this sacred

Place You’ve set

For me.

 

Yes,

I will pursue again

Your glorious awakening

In feet upon these stormy waters

Tread.

 

Yes,

I will pursue again

Embracing little girl in me

Her face so radiant, awash

In oil of joy You’re ever pouring.

 

Yes, I promise

I will pursue

And magnify

MY LORD AND KING

In me.

  5. Oh, Anna, such a beautiful poem! I love this stanza:
    “Yes,

    I will pursue again

    Embracing little girl in me

    Her face so radiant, awash

    In oil of joy You’re ever pouring.”

    Thank you for sharing your heart! Much love with many blessings to you! xo
