Don't touch me!

I also happen to write poetry sometimes as an expression of my own challenges,when I learn something I want to share,for fun and very importantly when I feel led to share something that God's people need to hear.I wrote this really short piece a couple of days ago and in order to get the full picture,I want you to picture a scene with two young people,a man and a woman.One of them wants something from the other that the other feels is wrong because of God.Did you do that?Good.Now you're ready to read it!

Don’t touch me
I scream it at you
I beg it of you
I ask passionately for it
Don’t touch me
I’d rather not
Really don’t want to
I require it of you
Don’t touch me
Thrown back in my face
Don’t touch me
Would it be more powerful if I wept it?
Or if I were the child of the President
Would you stop if I said I was a daughter of the sea?
Don’t touch me
I am none of those
But I am the child of the King
Sacred,consecrated,set apart
Don’t touch me
I’d rather not
Really don’t want you to
My Father requires it of you too
So Please,Don’t TOUCH ME!

Does this sound like you?

Spontaneous worship.

My friend on Facebook shared this video and immediately I started listening to it,I knew I had found something I had been looking for.I listen to a lot of Bethel Church's music and I know how deep their worship albums are,but I had no idea that actual live worship at this church every Sunday(morning and night) was so amazing.I was supposed to be finishing a presentation and going to bed since it was late,but I had to stop and worship.I spent some beautiful time with my father before I went back to work.The way the worship leader leads with abandon and complete disregard for who is watching,only concerned with God and His love and pleasure,it was simply what we need to go into the presence of God.I'm praying that I can get to the point where I completely lose myself in God,so that everyone who sees me and who will be with me in worship will lose themselves too.And I am definitely praying to be able to visit this church if I ever visit California.
