My poetic offering this morning.  May you hear the refrain of His love in your life today so  you are able to speak love into the lives of others…by His grace. For His glory. Amen.

Apples (God Knows Where I Am)

 

“Dear, God, please save me, I’m trying, but I don’t know what to do.” from documentary God Knows Where I Am.

 

As promised, my second poetic reflection after watching the documentary God Knows Where I Am- about the life of Linda Bishop. The documentary offers much to consider on the subjects of homelessness, mental health care, mental illness and our current healthcare system. I am not strong in these kinds of debates and discussions. But what I do offer is here in this small poem.

You can see the first poem, called What Matters Not HERE.

I have included the trailer for the movie below. Please take a moment and watch it. For more information go to God Knows Where I Am website.

What Matters Not

Sarcasm

This Sunday there was a message our Pastor taught on the scripture passage from Luke (12:13-21) and it was absolutely a needed one for me… It is something God has been trying to work into my soul for awhile now. It’s a passage that is so easy to see and say- oh, that’s not me. Or, this YUCK in me is no big deal, or I’m not as bad as ______________________ (add your own prideful nonsense). But the truth is I have known the ugly truth about myself for awhile. I know that there’s still a lot more yuck in me than meets the eye, and I am grateful that God (and some people) see beyond it- BUT I am also grateful for a God who says, “ENOUGH! You need to rely on me more with this YUCK in you if you want to move on”.  I really want to say with confidence, I get this…I know this and I do…but the working out in these deeply profound truths in our lives is…well, it’s freakin’ painful and hard! Therefore by His grace I go…with that old limp as a reminder… More
