“…Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’  The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”    John 3:7-8

 

I have a personal connection to Nicodemus and his story as told by John.

…we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially sin that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ahead of us and never give up. Hebrews 12:1

Good Morning, Friends. Do you recall on my last post I mentioned I’d written two poems that morning? Well here is the second, based on my meditation and reflection of the readings in Hebrews. A lot really stood out to me, and as you know, every time we read scripture new insights are revealed. This is why we never grow weary reading the same books. If we approach the Word of the Living God with expectation, humility and sincerity, we will hear new things.  I know this is true for me. I pray it is for you too. Our God is an infinite wellspring of inspiration.

Great is His faithfulness!

“My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.” Anais Nin

 

I wonder what it was that caused you to put your pen to paper. Today, yesterday, right now. I wonder also what caused you to choose to share your writing. I wonder what your motive was to write at all? Have you thought about it?

Have you thought about the weight of your words, whether you share them or suppress them?

Has something caused you to stop writing? What?

About your writing- More

I live between the rock and the hard place

where living is no better than dying,

happiness no greater than crying,

truth no different from lying.
