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
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.

Welcome back, Joy! This is so beautiful. So is your spirit. I love how God has used the rest to further unloose the woman He has created you to be.
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.
Stunning poem Joy! x
