I Know Why

When our hearts and minds cannot wrap around reality, poetry allows a pathway to find the way through to a broader place. A place where words, feelings, imagery and meaning intermingle acting as hope, healing balm, and help to the soul’s cry for understanding.

I believe poetry, music, and all creative endeavors- painting, drawing, sculpting allow for this possibility. Poetry just happens to be my pathway.

This one is for sharing… for those who have endured the dark night of the soul’s struggle, and for those who have loved ones who have succumbed to it in its various forms.

May Love hold us close. Let this poem speak to you, whatever it will.

Earlier this week I shared about a favorite Journaling Prompt I enjoy which allows me to experience great intimacy with the Lord and also inspires my poetry and prose writing.

Discover Intimacy with God Through Journaling Scripture

paraphrase

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you know every once in awhile I will share a page from my morning quiet time. A few things to note about my morning journaling is it’s never forced but done as the Spirit leads or as my own personal need dictates. Balancing listening for that still small voice and acknowledging God’s presence while actually feeling heard is something many strive for without attainment. As with all relationships sensitivity and trust play a crucial role. So let’s walk through this past Monday’s spontaneous journaling prompt and why it is one I return to often for focus and clarity during my prayer time!
