My Arrow and Aim for 2018

IMG_9952 (1)-001

 

 

    This past first day of 2018, I sat with my freshly brewed coffee, open Bible, and journal pondering the year and pages before me.  I had already reconciled the fact that I felt no specific nudging toward a new word for 2018- I was ready to continue walking with my One Word for 2017 (Light)  into this new year. I also realized I was enjoying following the current scripture reading plan I was following, so no need to change that either. More

This poem for you today fresh from my morning journal.

May it bless you today as we come close to the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior and Lord, Jesus. Emmanual – God’s desire has always been to be with us…

may our heart’s turn to Him!

 

Look up, consider the stars…Have a blessed and beautiful holiday- may you be truly free and able to celebrate in a spirit of love and grace. God with us.

 

I hope the poem helps you draw near.

From the Perspective of Dust

 

A little backstory on today’s poetic offering. I had a conversation on the phone with my nephew Todd as I prepared dinner last night. He has been through some upheaval, but I am grateful to know the Lord has taken hold of him.

As I spoke with him, I recalled my early days of seeking God, and trying to follow the way of truth. Trying to bumble around this new life I felt within. Trying to figure out the church and church people with all the confusing mixed messages. Trying to understand scripture and what it had to do with me.

Or more specifically, learning about the One who called Himself, in John 14:6  THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life (emphasis mine). The One who didn’t mince words, leave room for doubt, or room to accept multiple ways. The one who cared not whether what he said would win him favor with the religious elite or the politically inclined.  More

Theological Deduction

 

The Spirit gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. However, there are some of you who do not believe.”

John 6:63-64

 

Without eternity

there is no reason  to smile,

and every reason

to be afraid.
