Simply Breathing Thanks

Simply Breathing Thanks

Sometimes we make things too complicated. We carry burdens too hard to bear we are not meant to. In these days of hardship and trials, may we remember to stop, listen, and breathe thanks to the Lord simply for giving us each day.

My Shelter

My Shelter

A quick poem of thankfulness to God my Refuge, my Strength, my Safe Place.

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. Psalm 57:1

When Roots Run Deep

When Roots Run Deep

Psalm chapter 1 assures us when we are truly blessed when we live a Godly life, we meditate on God’s word day and night, then we will be like a tree planted by streams of water that brings forth fruit. Our leaves will not wither, and we will prosper.

With the sure foundation of God’s word, we are rooted and grounded in the love of God, giving us the strength to live each day.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this poem and what it means to you...

One Day at a Time

One Day at a Time

What is the valley of the shadow of death you are walking through? What is the deepest, hardest, darkest path you’ve ever trod?

I’ve been walking a dark path for a few years. I don’t talk about it, mostly to protect a person I love and their privacy. This person is so special to me. I love her with all my heart.

I don’t know when this miracle will happen. But God is patient, and He will supply our every need. He will help us bear this burden, one day at a time.

The Mysterious Road to Jesus

The Mysterious Road to Jesus

I wonder though, how many times in my grief and burdens of life, I miss seeing Him or realizing He is with me because I am too centered on myself and my circumstances.

What if I just stayed in His presence all the time? What if I spent more time in prayer and communing with God? Would I have more peace in my life? Would I know Him when I saw Him?

Bookstore Wonderings

Bookstore Wonderings

There are two places I get creative in the most. Bookstores and Chick-fil-A. Here's my latest creation upon wandering around aimlessly in a bookstore recently. What gets your creative juices flowing? Is there a special place or room that helps you?

Where Have All My Words Gone?

Where Have All My Words Gone?

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 109:105

This poem is my song of lament to the Lord. I have tasted the dry dust of the desert the past few months, not able to find the “water of words” needed. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I have longed to sit and write, but I just couldn’t seem to find a creative bone in my body.

In all transparency though, it helps to drink of the Living Water. Something I have been struggling to do.

Hold On!

Hold On!

I know Winter is a cold time. Many of us hate the cold and can’t wait for it to be over. But what we must remember is, if it weren’t for death, there would be no life.

When Jesus allowed himself to be nailed to the cross to die for us, that my friends is when hope truly was poured out to us. Because without his death, he could not have risen from the dead and given us new life.

So, it’s in the newness of life we are saved. It’s in the newness of life, we have hope. Hope for a future. Hope for healing. Hope for love. Hope for whatever we need hope for.

A Quiet Respite

A Quiet Respite

I think we often want God to speak to us directly, in the loudest way possible. We want to make sure we haven’t missed Him or His message to us. So, we look for Him through the thunder, lightning, earthquake, hurricane, tornado, and any other way in which our attention is immediately drawn to.

How often do we marvel at the sheer beauty of the day or the river just rambling along its way? Do we recognize God in the gazelle as she leaps or the bunny as it hops? Where do you see God in your day to day living?
