Awareness

Awareness

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

In the day to day of life, I find more and more an awareness that this life is not just an empty vessel but a very real place of belonging. I belong to God. He loves......me. Amazing, but He does.

"

 

Awareness

 

Swelling intensity, Overflowing Christ reality;

Pure awareness,

vacuum filled.


Coursing strength and power Enter my soul


Water of life my drink.

I am a Growing vine

 Longing to bear fruit.


Jesus holds and supports me

There is no shame!


Joy, hope and peace are my song.


Dependency on God’s Spirit;

 Pure relief, my release.

 

Kathy Van Kurin, 2017

Author's Note

Kathy Van Kurin
As a flawed human being I know that my need for the presence and love of Jesus- Messiah, the Christ has and continues to give meaning and living bright color to the empty and questioning places within this heart. After all, every battle we wage and hope for release and healing is on this inner plain. I know this poem is a small one but it is just the smallest glimmer of the life that I have been given as a free and lovely gift...............Jesus blood. His sacrifice on the cross so long ago has bought me and I am His child; Loved child. Healing and wholeness have become my song.

I think just being human makes you flawed. Faith is such a powerful emotion. I like the belonging it gives you. I'm always amazed at people who have everything, yet always feel empty inside. Yet just life itself can be a high. Sadly now, religion seems to have been hijacked by the fanatics. But that's the bad. Still a lot good in the world today.

An excellent poem, Kathy, and I don't know, being unaware of things hasn't hurt me--but then, I'd be unaware of it, wouldn't I?

Thanks. It is what was in my heart and enjoyed the process!
I laughed when I read this title (check my last poem) :D ...

I feel the deeper we look for solace within ourselves the more answers are gifted to us.

I have been pondering for a while now the fact that I am currently wading through a purely introverted current in life, and as I see pictures of friends and family on social media out about and doing new things - I wonder, if I myself am doing the right thing - but yes, in all of my self questioning i am becoming less attached with the trivialities and less attached with being attached (if that makes sense) ... and its a great thing, in fact it soothes the soul ... less attached equals more awareness - more awareness gains sensitivity for the world and all of its inhabitants - it's a great place to hang out :D

Your work exemplifies the very energy coursing through your veins as to how feel about your own increasing awareness, well done X

We have been sent to earth to fulfill his mission. Life is worthwhile as long as the presence of God is alive in our hearts.
Giving ourselves up to His supreme presence brings peace to our lives.
It is always so nice to read a poem that is filed with a message of divinity.

This is a lovely poem of acknowledging the influence of the divine power. The basic animation force that creates and destroys Universes at pure will and it is our fortune if we are able to sense and acknowledge that invisible beauty of creation in one life time. Heart filled devotion, yet again, upon reading this poem.

gratitude and praise to God are the beginning, the growing and the all of knowing who we are .. and who God is ... it can't be helped if we are honest and persistent
strong theme held throughout, your use of language and personifications are inspiring and the visual of vine and fruit springs to mind easily ... very much a prayer says i! the foundation of Biblical teaching is pronounced .. blessed with each reading .. well done says i!

Wow, Kathy. I am constantly amazed at the quality of your expressions and thoughts. This poem is succinct and categorized into thoughts and truths that from your personal testimony convey an exact relationship with our loving God. The verse and rhyme may be free form, but the thoughts flow nonetheless and is true poetry. Thank you
