Revival – A Christian Poem About Restoration

Take this wounded heart
that beats in its own key
and tune it to the beauty of your mercy.

Gather these scattered fragments –
pieces of man I yearn to be
and mold me in the image of your Son.

Bathe me beneath the waves of your living water.
For you, you are the One
that revives and restores.

In your eyes shines the light of the world
that spreads like dawn across a sleepy morning
and brings sight to the blind.

Father, find me right where I am – weak and dirty.
May I not work, but let you work through me.
I am but a branch, you are the tree of life.

Call, call out to the nations
all who are broken and weary
and let their hearts be satisfied.

Lift us up from despair.
Raise us out from our putrid pits and muddy mires.
Wash us clean.

Where we fail, you redeem.
What we lose, you save.
Revival is coming. Can you feel it?

Prepare your hearts!
Awake! Shake your slumbers from your sleepy eyes!
Open your ears to the name that restores the soul!

Thorns of Love – Sad Love Poems About Heartbreak and Break Ups by Justin Farley

My current collections of poetry, all available on Amazon, all written by me, Justin Farley. A Voice in the Wilderness is a chapbook of Christian Poetry, written about the joys, doubts, struggles, and sorrows of the Christian life. Nature’s Bounty is a collection of nature poetry celebrating my love for the outdoors. And Thorns of Love is the first book of three in a series of poems about love, this one being sad, breakup poems.

I write to reach the hearts of the searching, the suffering, the still fighting. I write to soothe my soul and hopefully to soothe yours too. I write to celebrate and attempt to put words to the beauty of life. Here are my published books on Amazon. More to come. A huge, humble thank you to anyone who supports my work.
