Poem: Called to Worship (V) Empty
PostSubject: Poem: Called to Worship (V)   Poem: Called to Worship (V) EmptyThu Feb 07, 2013 6:20 am

It’s a fresh morning of new mercies;
raise your hands in a moment of praise!
Do you recall that you’re in covenant
and covered with the blessings of today?

Spend some quiet and quality time with God;
speak genuinely and offer earnest prayers.
Lift up your concerns and needs of others;
demonstrate faith… by words you declare!

Celebrate the faithful witness of Christ;
open your spirit; pour out your soul to Him.
Find strength as you rejoice in victory;
sing unto Him now with songs and hymns.

Embrace your anointing for life’s ministries.
God grants our petitions with earthly peace.
Renew your mind with the cleansing of His Word
and implement His promise of divine release.

Faith is about proper relationship with God
and not the memorization of spiritual quips;
build real communities with actions of love;
remember that we’re still… called to worship!



Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Lam 3:22-26; 1 Pet 5b-11; 2 Pet 1:3-11

Have you attempted to have your poems made into songs of worship?

I've been attempting for over 3 years to find someone to work with me to convert my poetry into songs. So far, no one has been willing to step up to this challenge. Had someone during the 4th quarter of last year express some interest; surprisingly, he closed his website and has ignored my queries since; not sure how to interpret his actions. I thought he may give his website a makeover and resume conversations with me.

My current church has no music ministry and the bulk of the church's general population are retired with no interest in poetry or music. I've been leading the monthly poetry group for nearly three years, but most of them have stopped writing and stopped attending (also without explanation).

I've also reached out to some greeting card companies to create new cards/bookmarks with my stuff; none of them bothered to respond to my inquiries. In addition, I've reached out to some Christian music companies - only to receive the same lack of response or acknowledgment.

If that wasn't enough fun, my publishing company failed (twice last year) to publish my second book of poetry; that means I'm still unable to sell a non-existent product, even though I signed a contract and paid for their services. Originally, it was scheduled at Feb 1st; then it was Fall 2012; had not heard back from them since the Sep/Oct timeframe.

Talk about a tale of woe! Whew! At least you are in there slugging away like the rest of us. You might try a Unity church - they are non-traditional and totally non-denominational though consider themselves Christ-based. They take new songs.

Lots of song writers go begging, so you are not alone.
