I haven’t written in a while, to be honest. A friend once told me, writing is like using a muscle, if you don’t use it, it shrivels. Maybe it’s time I started to work out again, one would wonder why. To immortalise self, well at least that’s what I have learnt from the beautiful souls in my book club; (a book club I’m in). Also, take the time to appreciate the beautiful sunset in the valley that is my current village. (shameless plug!!)
Moving on, I met yet another beautiful soul, (the encounter of course a story for another day); who inspired and encouraged me to get back to writing. The Faith is strong with that one. So here goes, first is this blog post, and second is the following piece, that I do hope will outlive me and stand beyond any reasonable doubt as a testament to what I believe in regardless of the beautiful mess I am. Be encouraged.
Let there Be (Light)
If I could knit a scarf with these words
Intricately woven syllables, adjectives and verbs
To speak on praise, infinite wisdom and power beyond belief
Love beyond measure, Grace bringing relief;
I would still not have enough to describe the power of
Let there be..
Light! (pause) from darkness
waters from waters
The ones that we can and cannot touch
For the ones we touch give us life,
the ones that we cannot rain life upon us..
Giving life to the earth
Literal beauty from ashes..
No praise would amount to a pat on the back of a God
who split darkness and made it light
Nor for the countless messed up lives He makes right, day and night..
Creating time and the seasons
Systems beautiful beyond our wildest imaginations
All in the power of His word; Let there Be!
If I could speak to the blind, I’d say Let them See
If I could pray for the deaf, I’d pray Let them Hear
If I could speak to the wicked I’d say let them fear
If ever to the world battered and broken, have no fear
& if your life’s empty, this God, Let there Be!!
