Promise #18:
My power will rest on you when you are weak.

2 Corinthians 12:9 (WEB)
He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.

Hope In Hardship

In Response To:

FOWC With Fandango – Permit

RDP Saturday – Hope

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #61 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Can one permit hope

for the worn and weathered

years of life taking its toll

when weariness is the lyrics

that the outer shell sings

off key due to pain and fatigue

the high pitch notes that scream

louder than the inner happiness…

 

Can one permit hope

with a mustard seed of faith

in the Grace where our hope is found

that reminds us that this is but

a temporary suffering

for in the dawn of a new morn

this passes and the outer shell

has a renewed strength

the gift of a heightened faith

in a Love that bears all things.

The Offering: painting and photo © Sue Vincent at scvincent.com

Silently in a momentary hiatus

from this past year’s journey

I reflect on blessings received

and give offerings of gratitude

with hopeful expectations

of the good that will come

in the Grace filled New Year!

Flight Of Discovery

In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #77 – Pause – As the world bustles, and we rush to meet deadlines, check off to-do lists, and fulfill those party invites, find a moment to pause, look, and listen.  Share a photograph, thought, or inspiration.

Living Poetry Monday Poetry Prompt – Taking – This week let’s write a taking poem. Next week will be all about giving, so let’s focus on its inverse. There are so many things we take: notes, pictures, care, advantage, for granted.

A moment’s pause

A focused breath

A ready stance 

For taking flight into

Unknown territories

Where undiscovered Truth

Is revealed and transforms

Wings into Wisdom

Grace the wind beneath…

Eternally

A Dead Place

In Response To:

BrewNSpew Cafe Weekly Prompt #3 – Partake

FOWC With Fandango – Live

RDP Tuesday – Vacant

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #76 – Music

Word Of The Day Challenge – Ocean

Your Daily Word Prompt – Purpose – December 10, 2019

Sadje’s What Do You See #7 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

As they journeyed through the vault

in search of a priceless treasure

they found it to be vacant and silent

of the lyrics and rhythm that gives one purpose

to live and partake in the abundance of life…

 

They chose not to dive deep into the ocean of grace

to capture the music that would carry them through

the waves of sorrows, pains, unbearable grief into

healing calm waters of Love’s strength, joys and 

incomparable heights beyond human realms…

 

But alas, they let fear imprison them into quietus

for a soul without music is a dead place.

Word Of The Day Challenge – Daft

Your Daily Word Prompt – Conspicuous – November 19, 2019

How daft my mind becomes

when the side effects of this

conspicuous autoimmune disease

overcomes this body in

unbearable ways and the

sounds of anger, agitation, annoyance

at every little thing is

delivered in a carriage with 

a determined purpose to 

laden my heart and my day…

grateful…for my julep of grace

that carries me through each time!
