Today I had the rare joy of being outside, for the most part alone, in the quiet, enjoying the beauty of Honduras, creation, and God's presence.
I was asking God what some of the stuff rattling around in my mind these days is all about. Maybe a dangerous question!
I love words, poetry, and thoughts on paper, so I am going to share. Maybe it will encourage you to spend some time alone with Him in the beauty of His world made for us.
Home, Beauty, Life, Fears; today I feel them all.
Dreams, Visions, Failures, Insecurities; today I see them all.
Stand, Worship, Tell, Story; I am called to do all of these.
Power, Rest, Presence, Soul; the things you give and guard.
Don't knows, Weaknesses, Must-dos, Falls; to You I give them all.
Anger, Love, Awake, Maturity; the words that come to mind.
Fun, Enjoy, Satisfy, Beauty; come Holy Spirit I long for them all.
Sometimes I can't catch my breath. Sometimes the holes feel too wide and deep to be filled. I struggle. And then there is the beauty. A bird. The greens. The movement of the breeze. The colors. You are faithful, forever, my portion.
