Being broken

‘Being broken’

Your voice whispered urgent, imploring

Calling me to come away

Take a break

Stay close to Your side a while

Abide in restful invisibility

close to Your heart

before I break and come

apart on the inside

Little did I know how my soul

longed for less exposure

Less busyness

Less stress

Little did I know how it would

reveal my deepest needs

Become a breaking

and a making of me

Peel back layers of sensitivity

Unloose the woman of God

You desire me to be

Now, broken by Your grace,

I seek solace, and I find

Rest for my spirit and mind

within Your inviting embrace

Friends, it looks like the poet in me is ready for release with a breaking of a God-inspired, self-imposed silence over the last month.

It feels good to be back sharing my words again with the wonderful community of #fiveminutefriday writers!

Thank you for your kind comments, thoughts and prayers over the last few weeks. They have blessed and sustained me more than you know. 🙂

I’m still taking things easy, resting and pacing and only writing as God gives me inspiration and anointing. But I’m so thankful for this opportunity to join in and share here today.

    • Thanks, Trudy. I appreciate the welcome back. 🙂 It feels good to be blogging again! And I sense the work God is doing in me is only just beginning. My foray into deeper rest in Him mainly revealed my great need of it as an ongoing part of life. So I must be careful not to rush into too much too soon.

    • Kimmie, after a long absence here I confess I am stunned by God’s goodness in pouring new poetic words into my mind. He never fails to amaze me with His grace. 🙂 x

    • Keren, I am so pleased this poem resonated with you. In my reading of your recent work and posts on Facebook I am in awe of His poetic gift in you, my friend. 🙂 x
