Just Worship Me

Here’s a poem I wrote a while ago during my study of worship. I was meditating on Psalm 46:10, which says “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (NKJV). This poem was literally poured into me by the Holy Spirit. God is awesome and He desires to have a relationship with us through worship. So, as you read this poem, hear God’s heart and chose this day to worship Him in the splendor of His holiness. Be blessed.

Poem: Just Worship Me

Don’t worry about where you will live or what you will eat.
I AM your God and you are My child.
I have everything in control.
Just be still and know that I am God!
Let it go. You can’t handle it.
So just worship Me.

Don’t worry about how your bills will get paid.
I AM your God and you are My child.
I alone am the supplier of each and every one of your needs.
Just be still and know that I am God!
Let it go. You can’t handle it.
So just worship Me.

Don’t worry if those closest to you turn their backs on you.
I AM your God and you are My child.
I will never leave you or forsake.
Just be still and know that I am God!
Let it go. You can’t handle it.
So just worship Me.

Do you need a miracle? Just worship Me.
Do you need a new job? Just worship Me.
Do you need healing? Just worship Me.
Do you need peace of mind? Just worship Me.
Do you need direction? Just worship Me.

Forget about your situation for a few moments and just worship me.
I did not design your body to carry the weight of the world.
I did not design your body to carry anxiety and worry.
I did not design your body to hold on to doubt and fear.

I sculpted you in My image so you can be filled with My peace.
So just worship Me.

I handcrafted you in My likeness so you can be filled with My joy.
So just worship Me.

I knit you together in your mother’s womb so you could worship Me.
I clothed you in your right mind so you could worship Me.

I raised up a standard against your enemies so you could worship Me.

My children.
My heart longs to commune with you.
Do you want to worship Me?
You must be humble.

My children.
I have so much I want to give to you.
Do you want to worship Me?
You must sacrifice.

My children.
I have your breakthrough.
Do you want to worship Me?
You must be obedient.

All I want you to do is worship Me.
Just worship Me.

Remember

I wrote this poem several years ago and wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!

****************************************

Remember

My brotha and sista
When those fake people
Smile in your face and stab you in the back
Don’t be discouraged
Remember
Hold your head up high
You are here for a purpose

My brotha and sista
In this life we are going to experience ups and downs
Walk thru valleys and overcome mountains
Don’t be depressed
Remember
Hold your head up high
You are here for great things

My brotha and sista
When others try to tear you down
Destroy your dreams
Don’t give up
Remember
Hold your head up high
You have been chosen

Fearfully, Wonderfully

Psalm 139:14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful I know that full well.

************************

Fearfully, Wonderfully

My sista
There was a time in my life
When I hated
the nappiness of my hair
the darkness of my skin
the curvaceous ness of my body.
I wanted
To have silky hair
Be light skinned
Be tall and thin,
But God reminded me that
He designed me for a purpose
His awesome purpose.
So stop flipping through
The pages of those beauty magazines
Look at the likeness that is yourself
And announce
I am made
Fearfully!
I am made
Wonderfully!

My brotha
There was a time in my life
When I despised
the shyness of my persona
the meekness of my manner
the altruistic ness of me.
I wanted
To be audacious
Be out-going
Be self-fish,
But God showed me that
He created me for a purpose
His divine purpose.
So stop flipping through
The channels on the television screen
Look at the reflection that is youself
And proclaim
I am made
Fearfully!
I am made
Wonderfully!

God has uniquely crafted each
and
Everyone of us
According to His will
According to His perfect plan
So stop trying to be
like and
Sound like and
Act like and
Look like and
Dress like and
Walk like and
Talk like
Everyone else.

Be the salt in this
Tasteless world that God has called you to be
And
When doubt and
Fear and
Jealousy and
Envy and
Depression and
Hatred creep into the
inner self of you
Hold your head up high
And declare
With the kingdom authority
I am made
Fearfully!
I am made
Wonderfully!
