Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

In The Hours of Yearning 


Even in the shadows 

I hear the bird singing 

When you feel like shit

You need a good song

Angels and harps are at a distance 

But this bird with all rights reserved 

Sings a necessary song, perhaps just for me

God is all around in magnitude 

I lift my head to His ever present light in acknowledgement 

We walk by faith and not by sight

Sore eyes drop tears of angst 

The devil pokes and prod with a sharp stick

I think of myself as neither valiant or courageous 

Only a being  carry a lantern of understanding 

Asking God for a pinch of Solomon’s wisdom

  1. Wonderful words Brother!

  2. I came here because I had you on my mind. I was just about to sleep and I remembered I thought of you this morning and got so busy but I’m here now to read and take in your words. I really find this encouraging in a different kind of way the devil does poke with a sharp stick and I felt something like this tonight so much that I prayed for worrier angels. I’m asking God to send them your way. Isn’t that something? Be well and blessed my friend! 🌼💛
