Pondering The Poetic Heart

Pondering the Poetic Heart is a place to guide our spirits into place of contemplative rest. As a poet, I long to encourage you to find hope and healing through the process of reflecting on God, love, life, and all things that capture the spirit through the written word.

In the month of November, I will lead us through a time of thanksgiving through my 30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems. In December we will ring the bells of Christmas. There will also be other times through the year when we will celebrate love, just for fun poetry, and more. I pray this will be a place of loving contentment for all of us.

God’s Gentle Whisper

God’s Gentle Whisper

. . .while you’re hiding out, trying to find refuge from whatever storm life is blowing your way, take a moment to listen. Listen for the still, small, whisper of God’s voice. He’s speaking to you, can you hear Him?

Come to Jesus

Come to Jesus

A note of encouragement to all who are feeling weary, heavy-laden, and burdened beyond your ability to stand. I pray for you to find peace, strength, and comfort as you rest in Him.

Looking for God

Looking for God

God loves when we seek Him. He wants us to search for Him. When we search for God, we are looking for someone we can depend on. Someone who loves us unconditionally and will never leave us. He rewards those who seek Him by showing up and revealing Himself to us at just the right time.

Are You Okay?

Are You Okay?

The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me— A prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 Heaven’s Sweet Lullaby   Because somewhere in the night You sang me a sweet lullaby whispering...

Hoping, Trusting, Breathing, & Believing

Hoping, Trusting, Breathing, & Believing

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
Anxious and angry, I turned away from God, not able to believe He was listening or caring.

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My anger turned to depression. Deep depression, manifested in my inability to sing, write, laugh, or smile. I didn’t want to be encouraged. I didn’t even want to pray or read my Bible.

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My heart became lonely without You, Lord. I cried out for help, and You came running.

A Prayer for God’s Graciousness

A Prayer for God’s Graciousness

On a cold Friday morning in January some years ago, I was at one of the lowest points in my life I had ever been. For some time before that day, I had told God I didn’t want him in my life. I quit attending church regularly, quit reading my Bible, and quit praying—with the exception of telling God to go away. Leave me alone.
