A Medley of May Flowers and Micro-Poetry

Bold Prayers

There is no limit

to what God can do

so our prayers may be bold

as we remember this truth.

I’ve shared a medley of short poems

I’ve collected from recent ones I’ve shared on Twitter and /or Facebook.

These are the ones that seemed to be most liked.

I’ve noticed the favorites with readers

 are the ones I wrote out of a deep place of pondering

during my morning reading times.

I journal each morning.

In my journal I note a favorite Bible verse,

and I then write a poem in response to it.

I have linked this post with Sunday Stillness (author/artist Janis Cox)

I hope you will take a moment to enjoy her artwork and devotional.

This week I guest blogged,

on International Christian Fiction Writers,

about keeping a journal.

Here’s the link: ICFW

for those of you who haven’t read it yet.

Do you write in a personal journal?

  1. Oh my goodness, what a feast for the senses this post and its photos are!! And I’m so sorry I’m so late in telling you that. I’m so far behind and the faster I go, the behinder I get it seems. The RLS has been awful lately but hopefully the new med wiil help with that and I’ll finally get caught up. In the meantime I hope all is well with you and yours. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  2. Wendy, I journal in the morning, too. Cuppa coffee, My Utmost for His Highest, and Jesus Calling. I choose a verse and away I go. Thanks for blessings, intercessory prayers, requests for myself, always asking to be closer, to know Him more deeply. Sometimes I get inspiration for my poetry during those times. Sometimes, I simply sit with Him and enjoy the being. Those times are special, as you well know. In the silence and beauty of the relationship.

  3. It’s evident that you do spend time with God. Your medley and your photographs show that so beautifully, Wendy. You have encouraged me too. And I do journal each morning, spending time with God. Sometimes I draw out the verse and I write notes of praise and ask for lots of help. 🙂

  4. Wendy, your poems are beautiful. In my journal, I have a section for each person in my family … and when the girls would say something funny or brilliant, just something I knew I’d always want to remember, I’d jot it down. We laugh ourselves silly reading over it. I’ve been slacking off journaling lately … 🙂 I’ll regret it. 🙂 Memories forgotten.

    1. Dear Shelli, I appreciate your reminder, as I have a journal for each of my children I started when I got pregnant—I keep forgetting to write in them. It’s fun to read old entries and pen prayers. ❀ But we can trust God to motivate us to do what must be done. There are so many flags waving for our attention in this life.

  5. So many of the spring flowers are so beautiful!
    The first poem struck me especially. We tell God what to do, but only God knows the whole story and sees the whole picture. Kind of like telling God how to improve an apple blossom.
    Peace

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
