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.

Leaps And Bounds 


There is nothing I want more 

Than to close the distance rapidly 

Free falling into the silence

No parachute, no wings

Building that bridge piece by piece

The flames of this last crusade engulf me

There are moments that I am mere ashes blowing in the wind

But faith always pulls me together 

And God teaches me to fly a little further each day

We continue to grow in this together 

By leaps and bounds

We are not alone

God is always there

Regardless if the shelves are full

Or if they are bare

Friday Inspiration: There Is No Fear In Love

God 

Help me to shed the fear

As I 

Hold you near

God

Be my refuge and strength

My hope and faith in you

Will be relentless

Warriors and Men

Rising again

Facing the task before me

Stitched up wounds

What must be will be

The wise men spin tales of heroism

The jesters lighten the mood

I study the movement of the wind

Pondering my next move

Wounded

For a moment

I let my guard down

You struck quick and ferociously

My soul wounded

My thoughts woozy

But you should know

I do not fall easily

I concede this tiny victory to you

Tomorrow is a new day

God willing

Monday Motivation: The Big Push

The goal is within sight, not yet within reach, but still within sight. You wonder if you have enough left to make it all the way. You look back to how far you have come. No giving up now! No settling for “at least I made it this far” (depending on the situation). 

You look forward and it appears as if the end goal is so far away still. Is it? For all our effort to reach the point where we are, it will take that much more effort and then some to get to where we want to be. Whether you barely make it or arrive there easily, give yourself that big push you need to see it through.

Everyday should be looked at as a day closer to reaching your goal. Stay inspired!
