Hope NOT Misspent

September 30, 2014

 

The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

Authenticity

We are healed by what we are . . .

what we were made to be.

The preacher must preach,

the singer must make her music,

the writer must write.

Death is in the denial

but life is in the acceptance . . .

Focusing on Jesus I don’t trip!


My Birthright

I live in hope of the Light,

Therefore, it is mine.

The illusion of darkness

Is no more!

Thoughts Over Morning Coffee

sleeping

Do you ever have trouble sleeping?  I sometimes do.  I never did as a child.  If I close my eyes right now, by day, I can still recall the soft murmuring of Mama and Daddy talking in the other room.  I didn’t always understand what they were saying, but I felt safe and loved and knew everything would be okay and felt their comforting nearness as I drifted off to sleep.   I am not that innocent little girl anymore but whether I am feeling alone or not, my Abba is always near and loving me too!  All I need to do is let go, let Him take care of me, and rest knowing He will never abandon me . . . just like my earthly parents never did.

Droplets of water

Falling, falling, from the sky

You nourish dry ground

and provide restoration!

New life, new hope – praise, rejoice!

crossb

We struggle with our faith having read much, attended church services, etc. Consider the 12 named followers of Christ, His apostles, who dropped everything and said yes when He said “follow me” and with NONE of the information we possess. REMARKABLE.
