Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

When Searching For God..,


If you’re trying to find God,
You need not look far.
He is not lost or hiding,
He exists within your heart.

He resides within the moment.
He’s “I Am”, not I was, or will be.
Ask Him to reveal Himself to you,
And light beyond reason you will see…

Opening The Gift…


There is surface level clarity,
Grasping only at the finger tips.
Of God’s outstretched wisdom,
Idle, leaving unwrapped His offered gift.

Meditation upon truth, neglected,
Many unclaimed revelations.
A loyalty to the comfort of ignorance,
Freedom from accountability and obligation.

But there’s more…

The ease of living enlightened,
The light within the truth.
The peace of a deeper relationship,
With a God, who guides and renews.

Rough surfaces get smoother with time,
Avoiding, and escaping snares becomes easier.
If the gift is opened, and understanding is sought,
Through prayer, and in Gods Word…

God’s Got This!


I pray for what I think I need,
Overestimating my vote’s power.
Requesting wants in desperation,
No clear vision for what I even desire.

I find when God answers my prayers,
They may overshoot my expected target.
I delight in these unforeseen gifts,
And my faith is strengthened through the harvest.

At other times I question if He heard me right???
As if something was lost in translation.
An element of disappointment for not getting my way.
The results are far from my expectations.

Faith supersedes my human attempts at reasoning,
God knows and works what is best.
Although my prayers are answered, whether altered or denied,
The conclusive reality… Is one in which I’m blessed.
