A CALL FROM GOD FOR POETS AND WRITERS OF CHRISTIAN POEMS, POETRY WRITING CALL OF GOD

       AN INSPIRING TRUE STORY  

  I went to Memorial Hospital for an infusion of Remicade that requires I sit in a chair for 3 hours.  Filling this time slot means preparing material to read or listening to on my ipod.  Monday, I grabbed two books of old poets who have been declared by academics as great poets.  I had found the poem boring.  I felt perhaps the fault was mine in not giving them a real concentration in order to see their worth.  Sitting there I started with poet Yeats book and finding it still boring and not inspiring.  Suddenly an insight filled me with the thought that poets write in the language of their day, and since I do not live in their day, it doesn’t touch my inner being and that’s ok.

 I felt a real relief that it is ok not to like their cleverly written works.  I quickly grabbed a piece of paper, and immediately wrote the below poem.  Read the poem below for the rest of the story.

ASK GOD TO MAKE YOU HIS POET !!

I just read poems by Yeats, 
  He is acclaimed to be
 a great poet,
But I found it difficult to understand 
  The meaning of his thoughts,
Then an insight flooded me,
  A poet always writes
In the language of his day. 
 
Therefore there is always
  A need for more poets,
May each future generation
  Yield poets with moving pens.
Yes, especially holy inspired words
  That describe the glory of God,
For God seeks to reveal Himself.

By Frank Henrich 3/14/2012

When I wrote the first draft, it did not contain the last three lines of the second stanza.  Five days later the three additional lines were added, which gave me another insight. That insight is “You can write poetry about flowers, weather and any subject or emotion you want. Those poems can be entertaining but they lack the spark, the unction that touches souls  in a way which ones faith or walk in God is improved or refreshed. Which is only obtained when your poem glorifies God our creator."  End of insight! 

To be a poet for God is a high calling. If it is praise and fame you seek this endeavor is not the calling for you. For a true Christian poets seeks no fame or acclaim but wants only God to be glorified and their fellow Christians uplifted by the unction of God from the poems.

Of course God uses many other devices to inspire our souls like Scripture, sermons, Christian articles and verbal witness. But if you have a desire to write for God, get down on your knees asking for the spiritual gift of poetry and Christian writing.  God gives us desires but we have a free will. So we need to tell Him, yes, please use me. Let your prayer always be use me God in whatever way you desire.

  PRAYER OF A CHRISTIAN WRITER

There are thousands of persons, 
  Who can write about God’s wonders,
Far better than I can,
  But does the Holy Spirit,
Permeate thru their words?
  A gift only God can grant.

It is not so much what they say
  But when the Holy Spirit leaps
From the words to the spirit,
  Yes, the soul of another person,
To prick, touch, soothe and heal,
  To awake them to the reality
Of God who loves and cares for them.

Oh Holy Spirit! my prayer is not
  That I write the finest manuscripts,
But that You permeate my words.
  Let them be a conduit of Your power.
Help me to shape the word thoughts
  As you desire, so God will be glorified,
This is my prayer to You.

       SCRIPTURES

Matt 9:36-38 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest ." NKJV>
