Wait {for #Wholemama}

 

Is God enough? Can he be?

Wait.

A couple of years ago I took part in a Lent course. As part of that course we had a workshop on creating found and blackout poetry from the bible facilitated by Jamie Bonilla.

I was going through a very difficult time and knowing that poetry does things to me emotionally I was reluctant to try Jamie’s suggestion that we use our own poetry as a channel to let the Holy Spirit speak to us through scripture. I was frightened of what words I might find. I was scared about how they might break me apart.

Eventually I did the exercise she suggested, on a weekend away with a friend, and I don’t think it’s over stating it to say that the words I found possibly changed the course of my life….

Is God enough ? 

Can he be ? 

Wait.

  1. Thanks again for honesty and reality. We live in a fast…world so waiting is becoming increasingly alien to our thinking.
    God does slow us down for good reasons.
