40 Days Plus: Day 2

“How sweet, the presence of Jesus to the longing, harassed soul! It is instant peace, and balm to every wound.” ~ Elizabeth Ann Seton

Two Days to Wait, Ponder, Deliberate, Monday – 4th of March 2019 nearing 3:00 a.m.

During the night – a fiery reign of words befriends me, leaving me with a bewildered mind, and a tasteless heart. Upon awakening, my heart realized its ugliness. I cannot say “never again” for it will occur without warning, again, in the future, or in the Now. I am a useless instrument without the Word. It is here I receive nourishment for my soul. I open the Book.

During my life I witness a time to cry. A time to repent will follow. The streams of sorrow flow from my heart. I am remorseful, unhappy, and sad. I thought I was a treasured possession of God’s love. Why so sad? What touches a man’s heart so – upon being wrong, but, the grace of God? Delving deeper into the mysteries of the heart share an all-powerful love. I have come to realize, I am a treasure. I am. Not externally but by the very flesh of my heart. Is this not his resting place? Where he desires to dwell?

Thank you O Heavenly One, for the one who dwells within this mighty place. I am not left without promise but saved by grace. Because, he first loved me to render me his Love through dying upon a tree. But, upon rising he set me free. Now, I know I am his, and his possession, alone. And, before this journey upon this hour, I dedicate all that I am.

Forgive me, O Lord, for what I have been and guide me for what I shall be. I am sorry.

Poetry is truth as we share our words that express our stories. I have been writing poetry over twenty years and have been published within many venues, including two books of mine. As poets we speak our truths and become known by our words. If you are a poet...keep writing. There remains joy and love in the solace of the written word.
