This post is part of the Five Minute Friday blog link-up. Where I join up with a community of writers and bloggers of all ages and stages who gather around a single word prompt to free-write, unscripted, unedited, for five minutes. This week\’s word prompt is {STIR}

Stir within me? What Lord? ?

An insatiable appetite for you.
A conviction in my heart to
always follow you.

A fire within that burns for you.
Encapsulating into the deepest
muscles of my soul.

A passion for you that only you
the Great I Am can fill.

A love like Jesus, for all to see.
Love and grace for others that
your precepts teach me.

Lord, stir me, mix me. And form
these ashes into beauty by
your Omnipotence,Omnipresence
Omniscience power.

Stir within me by your
Righteous right hand
my God, my Potter.
