Soul Songs

I used to write a lot of poetry…it was soul therapy for me. It’s is something I’m trying to bring back into my life and I’m revisiting many of the poems God has given me over the years. Today I am facing many financial shortfalls and the weight is heavy but I know that God is good. Here is what I read early this morning.

“But the word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you may do it.” Deuteronomy 30:14

I’m been praying for wisdom and direction…thinking my Father was far off….

He’s not…He’s near

His WORD is near, deep in my heart and ready to speak words of encouragement…and worship. So, here is my poem and a song that always ministers to me. Bless you all!

Soul Songs

Small hurried moments
surrender precious heartbeats.
Shallow whispers walk,
where life words once danced.
Prayers muted by the rush,
give up in the flight of distance.
All is vanity, a mirror of pride.
until sacrificial love pours out
and retells a life story.
Time itself is stilled,
by a Holy pace.
Verbal sacraments,
once held close,
boldly lift and take wing.
Soul songs give breath
to supplications deep,
inhaling the depth of God’s love.
