Re-Inspire My Desire...
A Prayer For Renewed Inspiration Once Again:
Re-Inspire My Desire:
Lord...My idea is lost...My need is dire...
Please...Once agan...Light my heart's inspirational fire!
At a Crossroads…way out somewhere...I dropped the ball...
On the long stretch...On my marathon race…I hit the wall!
Yet in you...I regain my footsteps when I fall...
In my weakness…You helped me to stand tall!
And now...I will lift my banner back up into the air,
I will press-on...I will conquer further…I will dare!
So listen, Lord…Please...to my prayer...
This thing is dead without your wisdom...or your care!
I give it up to you…Do with it as you desire...
And if so willing...Help me...As only you can...to Re-Inspire!
Born to reach out and give life my best...
Born to shrug off defeat...After every test.
Made to push my brain to its very limit..
Wanting to defrag all the unused files that are in it.
Learning to become all that I can...
Suffering from being a mere mortal man.
Take care to not underestimate the person you see,
The one that writes this is headed for Victory.
Not by my own hand…But from one above,
He conquered all around him…and he did it with love!
I am on a spiritual quest...
But only to the Next Level…I am one with the best!
For me...Well...I can re-activate my own wits...
Or I can fold my arms...and call it quits.
One thing yet…this is even more true..
I can’t do nothing at all...without you!
Go...and take yor world by storm.
Go and achieve the golden ring and place it on your finger to be worn.
But...Don’t think for a minute that you have it all...
(*) And find there’s no way to land on deck...after you "Call the Ball"!
Get ready to become someone less...
And let your Creator handle all the stress.
(**) For you are "The One"…Be sure of that…I am no liar...
Go out and make your ideas happen for our World…and then...Help to Re-Inspire!
Great Men of Old who had Magnificent Ideas:
Footnotes to the above:
(*) Reference to my favorite movie of all time "Top Gun". I think one of the most gutsy calls there has to be is when a Navy pilot "Calls the Ball" to land on deck of a moving, rolling. pitching, aircraft carrier. "Call the Ball"...as I understand it refers to a mirror ball (or curved mirror) that lies right below the deck stern and the pilot uses this to judge the plane and deck position while descending towards it rapidly. In the book "Fast Movers"...written about the Jetfighters of the Vietnam War...it calls this mirror ball/curved mirror...a "meatball". Hence: "Call the Ball" is the phrase for the pilot landing to take over guiding himself in to a swaying, twisting, floating deck runway...with no telling what kind of crosswinds. Ready to plant the thing on a deck the size of a postage stamp...when seen from above...and grab on by a hook to cables...before going over the side...after a short landing strip...and then coming to an instantaneous halt. Now...that's a gutsy call!
(**) Reference again to "Top Gun"...One of the many great lines from it is when "Charlie" first locks-on to the fact that "Maverick"...may just be more than another "hot-shot" flyboy there...training in "Fightertown USA"...US Naval Air Station-Miramar. "Maverick" had been up against a (new-series) MIG...and witnessed its capabilities while he was himself (with "Goose")...inverted. Thus...making "Maverick"...the only other fighter pilot in the room with more priviliged (and classified) information than "Charlie". She then...immediately wanted to hear about this account first hand. She was now very intriqued...and started to plot an intercept course to learn more from "Maverick". You see it on her face...right there in the middle of class. She states: "So You're "The One"! "Maverick" just gives the all-time greatest smirk smile snicker...in response. That is my all-time favorite movie quote. If you look through some of my writings: "The One" pops up from time-to-time.
