I am pretty excited that it is April 1 and that is no joke! Let the games begin, or more accurately, let the poetry flow.

It’s National Poetry Month and National Poetry Writing Month and let me tell you why you want to know.

 

First, a confession…

…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!

Morning Meditation: Hebrews Chapters 10-13
