Poetry Pilgrimage


“The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: “ Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you. Jeremiah 31:3

It is getting late here in the Cookingham house and I have been freelancing, playing some video games with boys and now going through some old poetry of mine. I’m listening to Divine Romance by Phil Wickham and trying to focus on this pilgrimage my heart is going on.

Yesterday I was a mess (on the inside), I ranted and raved as I drove home from work (yes, I was alone). After a while I heard a small still voice remind me of His love for me and my spirit became still as well. His pursuit of my heart is huge mystery to me and it reminded me of this poem. I hope you are blessed by reading it….there is more to come. Blessings, Jay

No Mere Mystery

Mind and spirit
Body and soul
Quieted and still
A deep worship flows
With the song of heaven
Devotion sounds
Echo across my
Own silence
I am known by
The One who knows
It is no mere mystery

My question is this….Do you feel like God is missing you so much that He’s tugging on your heart?
