“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived.”
Henry David Thoreau
So often we do not fully live because of the unacknowledged and unresolved hurts in our hearts. Whether because of shame, loss, or regret, we ignore that the pain blocks us from living out of our God given passions and gifts.
Whisper of God poems are a transparent look into my own darkness, which hopefully will make it easier to look for your own blockages. However, the train of transformation doesn’t stop there. The final goal is to replace the pain with the goodness of God. For out of the goodness of God, comes all life.
From these poems you will see
-Complete forgiveness comes from Jesus Christ
-God is in love with you – even as you are right now
-Everything God is doing is for the purpose of intimate relationship with you
Have the courage “to put to rout all that was not life” and “live deep and suck out all the marrow of life”!
