Like a Mighty Wind, God's Spirit

Like a mighty wind, God's Spirit
came with power and with grace.
Evidence was most abundant
on each head and on each face.
What the Prophet Joel had promised,
finally had been fulfilled.
Old and young, both men and women,
testified to what God willed.

In the midst of change and challenge,
sheltering in place for days,
those who followed Jesus' teaching
filled the upper room with praise.
Tongues of fire and of worship
blazed with beauty and with love
bearing witness to God's presence
now descended from above.

Pentecost reminds God's people
quarantines are not a curse.
Stays at home can be a blessing
when we seek God's Kingdom first.
Shelters can be sanctuaries
where the voice of God is heard.
And in quiet contemplation,
we can act upon God's Word.

Like a mighty wind, God's Spirit
comes again with power and grace
animating us with courage
for the trials we will face.
Filled with that which filled our Savior,
we can conquer any foe.
We can claim the life He promised
as we stay and as we go.

Tune: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
