The (Christian) Writer’s Inquiry




Good Morning, and Happy Sunday.

Before I share my still hot from the morning journal pages poem with you I wanted to let those of you looking for Part 2 in the 4 Seasons of the Writing Life series will be live Monday.

Thanks for joining me on the journey today!

The (Christian) Writer’s Inquiry


I am not of this world,

purchased at great cost

and though at times I do forget

May this truth on me not be lost



Am I less when others

are not impressed-

More, when I ‘m adored?


For me, I think it will be best

if these things I do ignore.


Numbers are not needful to know

and people aren’t platforms

whether you agree or not,


To what will you be conformed?


Out on a limb, I bravely step-

though many consider me inept;


I am called to walk unlike those

wearing funeral clothes-

to walk by faith,

not by sight, not all I do suppose.


To write with power and insight,

I know is not my own,

bravely step out day by day

into the wild and unknown.


For life with the Holy One

is not a grace for sale,

relies not on likes and tweets

won’t show up in the mail.


Calvary and blood have changed

what on earth I do pursue-


His  glory, not my own I want-

How about you?



This is my story, this is my song…


I am Writing Redeemed in October for 31 Days, 

Thank you for joining me on the journey. I pray my sharing encourages you in your own journey. Write about it, journal it, share it!  Most of all, encourage another along the way.

  1. This poem capitalizes the goal committed believers hope to attain,

    His glory, not my own I want-

    How about you?

    Tha is all I want, to be able to reflect God’s glory to others.


    1. I would agree. I believe it is my desire. But, sometimes I think we need to look deeper beneath the surface and let God reveal our motives…because our own hearts can be deceitful…and at any time we can be led astray. It is a continuous grace we need to seek…daily by faith, I believe. Thank you for being here Cecelia, I appreciate your comments.
