Nothing can pull us away… #devotion


stream
 Oh the days are hard
the path is rocky
and my feet are weary
where can I go to find sleep?
Is there any protection
from the sky that is falling
trying to enter the reason
of my mind?
“Nothing can preserve you except…”
you hear this over and over
“just give in
give up…”
the silent tormentor
has gained a voice
in my head
and I am raw with fear
“Give In
We can help…”
But what are they offering?
More importantly what are they taking?
God’s love doesn’t evoke fear –
it’s result is peace
God’s love doesn’t evoke anger or hatred –
it causes us to love those who hate us
God’s love does not require us to destroy ourselves or others
IT is a trickling (healing) stream in the midst of the darkest night

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?…

Neither height nor depth, nor any other created things, will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   ~Romans 8:35 and 39

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hard to hold onto faith in hard times – but you do it beautifully. Yes, the God we know is a loving one. I dont understand how extremists can murder in the name of their God and think they are right. Boggles the mind.

  2. Killing in the name of or because of insisting on God being one’s version of God has happened since Cain and Able. All because we humans seem to need God to exist in a box we create in our minds. And not all killing is about God. This very moving piece you have written in on the 52 anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy.
