Finding Your Footing for the Journey

 

 

We are in Week 1 of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond and I didn’t want to leave you high and dry until Saturday. Today is Ash Wednesday and the official start to Lent.

I’d like to share a few tips for this journey for those who may be unsure of their footing, a poem I wrote back in 2013, and an incredible resource for Lent which combines all the beautiful creative things I love- art, poetry and music which you may also greatly appreciate!

Are you ready?

In The Beginning: Journaling through John Chapter 1

Welcome to our first week of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond ! The purpose of this journey is to linger longer in the presence of the Lord and not create a sprint through the Bible. We don’t want to minimize our relationship with the One who created everything … with a capital E – Everything – to a bullet on our task list, do we? When I look around at the state of the world today, I dare say many people have. I go further and say, I am in danger of doing this daily! When God becomes a bullet on our list of things to do, friend, I fear He has been removed from the place He desires in our hearts and relegated to an unrecognizable blur in our days.

I’m not sure of the weather where you are situated at this moment, but rumor has it, Spring is right around the corner. Since this may appear doubtful…depending on where you ARE situated, I thought I’d share some poetic inspiration about the most elusive season…

It’s been a while since I have attempted any consistent blogging schedule. It’s been longer since I have done an online Bible study or devotional book group. I’ve pretty much felt like I have fallen into blog negligence over the past few years as I’ve juggled various other commitments, roles and opportunities.

BUT…I”M BACK!

Love Query

Well, today is Valentine’s Day and yesterday morning I wrote the poem I am  sharing today. Words have been coming less often lately, but I am grateful when God inspires words from within. One of the songs going through my mind this week has been “Good, Good Father”. We sang it for worship at church Sunday. You know, it’s a funny thing about how God weaves together our faith lives in time…how important it is for us to gather our imperfect selves together and sing, pray and hope in the One who is Love. How He holds us together through the joys and sorrows we will know in our brief lives…and how he counts our tears as precious…He never turns away.  No matter how many injustices we suffer, may we remember He’s a Good Good Father ….always.

 

I pray this poem is a blessing to you today!
