You See

“One hundred years from now, who is to say our attitudes in the present day won’t be taken to task?”

Michele Bogart  

 

 

 

You See

 

You see,

saying, “I see clearly.”

 

You see,

passing judgement in time.

 

You see,

so you say,  the sins of others

from long ago days-

 

You see,

and in so saying,

are blind.

Gathering poems, and sharing one of my very favorites. Written about  five years ago, straight outta journaling.  Morning journaling times are the best, yes? OK, may this one bless your socks off…NO, make it your feet. May these words bless your feet off!  This one has a definite beat! Enjoy!

The God of My Salvation

The God of My Salvation

“But I have trusted in your steadfast love,
my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

Psalm 13:5 (ESV)

All Things Are Possible

  
 
 
 
 
  
 You are worthy of my trust, my complete trust.
 You are worthy of my confidence, my complete confidence.
 I have nothing, nothing I can give;
 but I ask you today, this day, please help me to live.
  
 Not in my former ways,
  trusting no one-least of all my self
 Not in what I can’t or can do 
 based on poverty or wealth.
  
 Yet, in humble submission to what I can’t see
 for only you comprehend all I can be.
  
 I stumble too often on what others say
 Too often satisfied with having my own way
 Both of us know where these struggles lead
 so more of you, less of me is what I do plead.
  
 All things are possible with you I believe,
 beyond what my mind can fully conceive.
  
 You’ve never deceived your chosen ones,
 by grace and faithfulness, each battle’s been won-
 Let me continue this race, wholly trusting your Son,
 not in others nor self, but in what you have done,

 not in others, myself- only in what you have done.

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!
