Treasure Island

David Knox

(honestly why would i tell you? / does it matter?)

Stirred, Not Shaken

I want to be stirred up for Your kingdom
Filled with purpose, desire, and hunger as Your son
Won't let the voices, the screams
Move my resolve even though I'm bursting at the seams
The idol is strong, so prove to me that You're stronger
It can even take away my free will
I don't remember, I can't remember
But I still do, it sucks my creativity away
But it takes the pain away too
When I don't turn to You
When I'm on the rocks and I'm shaken
I get a drink that is shaken and I feel
Better for a little bit, feel numb, feel a bit less like me
Less like who I am, less like who I can be
Don't let this shake me
Don't let this break me
I want to be stirred by Your love
Take these addictions away
Replace them with your benedictions daily
heal my affliction
Fill me with purpose and Your Spirit
If I don't know what I 'm saying let it be
Your stupor and not words from my drinks
I wanna be stirred and not have my faith shaken
Make me into the new man
Stirred but not shaken

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
