What a Gift!

If asked to summarize my relationship with God in a few words, I would say that my heart longs “to know & be known my Creator.”*

As far as I am concerned everything else hinges on how I pursue my faith.

In prayer, I hear the Holy Spirit’s voice and know how to proceed. (1Kings 19:12)

In studying scripture, I can put the pieces together and know that the entirety of the Bible is one story that points to Jesus. (see prophecies)

In worship, I sing praises to Jesus, knowing that He delights in the melodies that float to Heaven on the wings of angels. (Psalm 147)

In joy and in sorrow, I know that God is with me. (Isaiah 41:10)

*But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles, to which you want to be enslaved all over again? Galatians 4:9 NASB


  1. The only way I found His gift
    was in the hard cold cancer ward.
    It gave an unexpected gift
    that set my bleeding riven heart toward
    something that was grand and gay,
    something that’s long called to me
    to set aside my cares and play
    with what’s created
    I and thee.
    So here I stand, my racquet ready
    with all I might have in nerve
    that I may stand strong and steady
    for the comet You may serve
