When you look into the mirror, think not upon how others perceive you; instead, think about how God sees you. To Him, you are the most beautiful thing on earth. And that's all that matters.
Please feel free to comment. I'd love to hear what you think of my feeble attempts to convey my thoughts, feelings, and imaginings.

It isn't long ago that I would write and the words would flow so effortlessly. I have wondered why that recently, I can hardly write at all. I feel the need, the urgency to let words flow onto paper, to mingle elegant words together to create beautiful verse and rhyme. But my imagination has gone and left me. I yearn to write; to put pen to paper and let the words stream out of my mind into plain view, but often nothing comes. It is frustrating, confusing, and depressing.
I think I have figured out why I find it so hard to write of late: My focus has changed. I have gone from thinking and writing about God, His creation, and His people, to writing about me, my feelings, and my desires. And now my well has gone dry. Tisn't a bad thing to write about self, though one can only write so much about onesself before they run out of things to write. Therefore, I believe that a shift in focus is essential for my writing, and, with God's help, I hope to accomplish this.


Inside of me is a poem, a masterpiece just waiting to be released. I close my eyes and open my mouth, but my tongue stays silent. I reach for paper to write it down, but my hand goes still. My heart cries to be released in this creative venture, yet my mind does not receive the promptings and cues from my soul. What can be done to set free the creativity locked inside? I must find release for these thoughts and emotions. I must set loose these visions in my heart. I must be free!

"When the night is bad and my nerves are shattered and the waves break over the sides, Infinity speaks. God Almighty shares through His Son the depth of His feelings for me, His love flashes into my soul, and I am overtaken by mystery."

~Brennan Manning in The Furious Longing Of God
