Thinking Thursday: Come, Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill me up.
Let me drink from your loving cup.
Fill me until I overflow,
and all the Spirit’s fruit I show.

Joy, peace and patience, all be mine,
kindness, gentleness, love divine.
May self-control and goodness shine,
and faithfulness like sweet new wine.

Oh let me come to you and drink
’till all my selfish ways shall sink,
and from my faithful heart shall go –
rivers of living water flow.

Praise God who gave His Son for me,
may I the Spirit’s temple be.

by Ann Marie Thomas

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. (Gal.5:22-23)

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
