a poem by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro (c) 2012
For such a time as this, our Lord put you in this world
To be where He needs you to be, to have the effect He desires you to have
For such a time as this, He revealed Himself to you
That your joy might be complete and His will fulfilled
For such a time as this, yes, for such a time as this
For such a time as this, His Spirit is in our midst
So that when we seek His face, He is found and His Light shines through us.
For such a time as this, as the moon reflects the sun
He works through us to show His way, not by our power, but by His
When we make the choice to submit and obey, for such a time as this
For such a time as this, He uses our lives to produce the food
Real fruit of His Spirit which is clearly seen and sweet to eat to nurture His harvest yet to come
For such a time as this, we become like Sonflowers as we adore the Son
And within our center He produces a harvest to feed those dying without Him
That before their generation passes away they might know Him & find life, indeed for such a time as this
For such a time as this, we are His harvest to feed the next ones
Through lives which are no longer ours, but His, the love of God reigns and rules
For such a time as this, His Spirit will lead us every step, and the enemy will be conquered (what was meant for evil used by Him for good)
By Him hope will return, joy and peace will flow like a river, and lives will be redeemed
For such a time as this, for such a time as this
Every generation passes away, like a wildflower – just a breath and we are gone.
Therefore the time is now, this moment counts; regardless of where we are He has good purpose,
To be His light where all seems dark, to bring a hint of His fragrance standing as a testimony for His truth, not by our might but by His Spirit
The world needs to know we are not destined for death and despair here but hope, purpose & life in Him
For eternity, yes, but also for such a time as this.
For now we are destined to be, for now we are destined to serve
For now He desires to use us for good though we are far from perfect
Because He loves us from here to eternity and does not treat us as our sins deserve
For now He turns darkness to light before us, lighting His way that we might lead those behind
By His Spirit for His glory for His kingdom come and His will to be done for such a time as this, for such a time as this.
