Awareness

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

Awareness of the life within.

"
Swelling intensity,

 Overflowing Christ reality; 

Pure awareness, vacuum filled.



Coursing strength and power,

Water of life my drink;

I the growing seed,

in time bearing fruit.



Jesus holds and supports me;

Dependency on His Spirit,

Pure relief. My release!

Amen. I wrote a poem to express this view. I'll share it here for you to ponder.

I See You
From
The Word Garden
Of
Valormore

In gentle whispers made by falling leaves,
I perceive you summoning.
In cloudless mist upon my face,
I hear my name upon your lips.
~*~
In the presence of my enemies,
I evoke your promise.
In frightening tempest of vast enormity,
I perceive your reassurance.
~*~
In volleys from slings and arrows,
I stand whilst others collapse about me.
In merging blood of innumerable innocent,
I fathom your indignation.
~*~
In smoke from altars far afield,
I recognize your displeasure.
In platitudes made to artificial deities,
I appreciate your righteous anger.
~*~
In the kindness of strangers,
I see your compassion.
In the bounty and beauty of nature,
I see your passion in blossom.
~*~
In the vastness of the universe,
I see how small we are.
In the atoms of our flesh,
I see the universe within.
~*~
In all that we comprehend of existence,
I see but a fleeting glimpse of your entirety.
In all the love we profess,
I see as a pale reflection of your perfect love.
~*~
In your living word,
I see your benevolent plan.
In the Resurrection,
I see our wondrous eternity.
~*~

In all things great and small,
I praise your holy name.
Yours is the kingdom, power, and glory forever.
Let it be on Earth as it is in Heaven.
~*~
AMEN

This is deep and no greater good to humans than to depend on Jesus. Life is far much easier and peaceful.

You are welcome.
Beautiful. I love the flow and feel of this poem. My favorite lines are: Water of life my drink; I the growing seed, in time bearing fruit. Humans, like all living things, need water to grow and flourish, and there is no better water than the water of life. Enjoyed this poem very much.

Thank you, Kathy. Sounds like you are in a good place. Blessings to you and yours.
putting ourselves in the hands of another...comforting...faith can be comforting...

if we just appreciate what life we have...acceptance, patience, and gratitude go a long way to fulfillment.

nicely expressed.

You totally rock. I tell people to "Trust in God" or also to "Trust in Jesus." You go girl! We have to believe love and tolerance are there and in the life eternal. You got some of them on your side, right?

I am giving you 100. I try to answer my reviews with another review. This was so beautiful, and remember that you have a friend in Jesus!
