SOMETIMES I NEED REMINDING . . .

April 2, 2019

Blessed By Darkness and By Light

 God speaks to me 2

If it wasn’t for the storm

Would the dead wood remain standing?

Without its rain,

Would the pond still refresh my thirst?

Would the grass still grow and cushion my footsteps?

Would the garden still feed my body,

Feed my soul?

If it wasn’t for the storm,

Would I still see the sun and feel its warming rays?

Rejoice!

DARKNESS OVERCOME

March 2, 2019

 bedroom comfort

Crickets and rain drops outside my window,

Quiet my distracted soul

And not unlike a lullaby,

I feel my spirit finding rest

In You.

LITTLE WORRIES DON’T HAVE TO GROW LARGER!

January 30, 2019

MOST OF US go to the Lord in prayer only for big things and wonder why we become stressed.  He wants to be in relationship with us, His children!  DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE!  REACH OUT TO HIM!

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

 


TRUST AND FOLLOW

November 1, 2018

Qavah

I embarked along the path

I was directed to take.

Assuming it would be short . . . .

Assuming clear weather . . .

Assuming a warm climate . . .

But these were brief and fleeting at best.

The path was mostly unpaved,

Slippery and full of fallen trees.

I stumbled and skinned my knees.

I was cold.

The only sound I heard was my own breathing

And the call of wild beasts of prey!

Oh, when would I . . .

No!

Ouch!

Why?

Will I ever?

At some point I turned around a bend

And there it was!

My destination,

For a time anyway,

Had been reached!

I sighed at the glow of the sun

And felt its rays.

I wonder . . .

Could it have been there all along

Waiting for me to look up?

Ah, Faith or Fear

October 16, 2018

Why is it

that we acquiesce 

so readily

to other humans even though

we know the Lord is leading us

elsewhere?

REST IN HIM

October 13, 2018

When I was a child,

I was more curious

than fearful of the

scary” monsters lurking under the bed.

No, not me . . .

What would scare me,

and break my heart

would be to have to live

one day . . . or one second

without your mighty presense

and your amazing love!

PASSION IS GOD’S GIFT!

May 31, 2017

Folks who soar through life without a trace of stress are generally better at hiding it!  DON’T COMPARE AND JUDGE YOUR FEELINGS!  FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
