Moved By The Spirit

Moved by the spirit…
what could that mean?

Does lightning have to hit
for one to walk again?

Moved by the spirit…
Is there something we don’t know?

Is it majestic or ordinary
deep within our soul?

Moved by the Spirit…
a transformation do I speak,

It’s as easy as wiggling
both of my feet

Why has it always
seemed out of reach

Higher than a human
could hope to complete.

Maybe we’ve done it
many times before,

We didn’t think, we just
walked through the door.

We think it impossible, only
for those who’ve been spared

Saved by some miracle,
we don’t think we can compare.

Maybe it’s like a breath
or a heartbeat that keeps us alive,

No more a miracle
then blinking an eye.

Why do we complicate
the truth that’s been free

It’s there every day,
can we not see?

Something we can rely on
always in play

Our spirit’s designed
to engage every day.

Allow Spirit to move you
there’s no need to wait

Make a decision
make it your fate.
