This is a season to set free. Unplug. Let loose. Chill out. Relax.
The world’s weight can sit heavy. We can drown under its load.
We need room to breathe. Be still. Listen to the still small voice Who brings calm to our souls.
I haven’t been doing much of that lately and I sense a Holy Spirit nudge to make more space for God.
The poem below was written a few months ago but its sentiments are my heart’s cry now.
The important can so easily get swallowed up in the urgent.
Creativity can get stifled in clamour.
Peace can become stolen by pressing purposes.
Joy can feel elusive when we join in too much with all the activity around us and don’t allow time out for our soul’s sake.
I need time to ponder and pray.
A space to hear holy whispers.
Room to read.
Time to write with no specific end result in view, just for the sheer pleasure of penning poetry and prose.
Maybe you do too?
I cannot connect with the world
drowns out His voice
collides with His calm
presses into His peace
I choose ease and rest
His Divine essence
sensing His Presence
while seeking His best
We have choices we need to make
decide or decline
sift hard and refine
chase after God’s way ~ this day?

I’m looking forward to catching up with you in a week or so. Please grant grace for a delayed reply to any comments left here. Thank you!
May God bless you and meet with you in a special way as you follow after His heart this Summer.
