Filled to Pour Out

Holy Spirit
Fill me with courage
Fill me with joy
Fill me with gratitude
Fill me with mercy
Fill me with grace
Fill me with love

That I might pour them out
On my family
On my co-workers
On my neighbors
On my enemies



It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub today, my favorite poetry prompt ever. Inspired by a single word, poets are called to write a poem of exactly 44 words. There are no other rules or guidelines. Sometimes a poem idea comes to me instantly upon reading the prompt. Other times I have to meditate on it awhile. Today’s word, offered by De Jackson, is fill. This is one I had to ponder for the afternoon, and I finally came up with this prayer.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
