Living Water

Hello! I know I am almost a week late in this post- which was supposed to go up Saturday- I apologize and ask for MORE grace and thank you for it! But, today I offer you a poem. Not just any poem, but a story I have rewritten so many times now, I am surprised I can still breathe new life into it…ah, but then again, why SHOULD that surprise me? The Author of this story ultimately IS Spirit...and able to breathe new life to old things, even bring dead things to life! It is but a small miracle, but a miracle no less that this story continues to be told ANEW- many years after it became my own.

I have taken John Chapter 4 and from an original devotional piece I wrote, which has been told and shared in different ways over the years (by me) transformed it into a poem. Since it’s National Poetry Month – HOORAY! – and I have wanted to change it into poem form for awhile, well it’s perfect timing – even though 5 days late for our journey!

 

Also I would love to know how you are doing with Journaling with John – I will be back Saturday but let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoy this poem as we Revisit the Samaritan Woman…

If you have any thoughts, suggestions on the form or content, or feedback I am open to it!

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.

In light of the day’s current darkness, I am called to  be a bearer of light…for my brethren weeping. My heart weeps with you.

 

May these words offer encouragement. May you know and believe the darkness will never extinguish the Light…

 

A morning meditation on Revelation 22, for my brethren.

Sharing a poem I wrote earlier this month. Initially I titled it Examination Day, but after going back and forth with hubby about all the possibilities- I just went with the sheep by still waters…

May your self- reflection always  reveal an abundance of grace within, that you may be able to abundantly give it.  For such times as these…

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
