The poem below was inspired by a sermon. The sermon title is “Self-Powered or Spirit-Filled” by Steve Ramsdell delivered on Sunday 04-28-2013

Jesus had risen
And afterwards seen
Plenty of excitement
Then back to the routine 

During the long wait
Patience was needed
For it was a long seven weeks
Before an event was heeded 

On the day of Pentecost
There were flames and a strong wind
The Holy Spirit began to descend
Amazement and mystery was unpinned 

Now God is with us
And the Spirit leads
Walking in the Spirit
And doing good deeds 

The Spirit of God in us
His great power to extend
The Divine presence of God
Is our forever good friend 

Dreaming and Hoping
With guidance and might
Taking charge with confidence
Because the Spirit is right
