Take Every Thought Captive

Lord, my mind will not cease its rummaging
Through the wasteland of my life
Accountability reached but all I see
Are mistakes that cut like a knife…
You have never let me down
Not one single time…
But life isn’t poetry spun into a rhyme
It’s twists and turns, and spurns and yearns
Causing the soul, to search to learn
To become wise, not blind…

 

Child you must remember, life is not always kind…
When the enemy of your soul lurks behind every vine…
I have given you the way
When you walk in this path with me and obey…
Truth is right in front of you
Giving hope and faith and light to guide you today…
Don’t think about yesterday with its gripping, death and decay
Tomorrow isn’t given yet, look to me and pray…
It’s in this moment you’re living
You must stand up strong and be brave…
The life that I am giving, will be for always…
In one moment at a time…my Spirit there resides…
Let go of  what binds you in life’s twisted bitter twine…
Open your eyes and see me now, I’m here and I am thine!
Taking every thought captive, walk in my light…
You are no longer in darkness; for I have given you new sight…
Open your spirit, to My Spirit, let your soul take flight
Into my very presence; here you want to abide…
You in me, and me, in thee…that’s where heaven collides…
In this moment, we reside!
Lord, I find my rest in you alone. My life I give, my heart your throne…in this moment I belong, you are my fountain of peace, my sacred song.

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry by: MS O’Neill
2 Corinthians 10:51599 Geneva Bible (GNV) Casting down the imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,
Matthew 11:28-301599 Geneva Bible (GNV) Come unto me, all ye that are weary and laden, and I will ease you.
Take my yoke on you, and learn of me that I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
