(Ask yourself this question upon reading this poem: Where does my passion lie?)
Once upon a time,
Passion was misplaced…
Spilled out across time, space and pages
Though, not intentionally so…
Never finding the tunnel’s end
Maturation of passion
Reality of life…
Of where energy should be spent
Steadily finding a path…
Understanding of worthiness
Today, passion lies
Within, but not, without…
Salvation’s saving Grace

Passion…what an amazing thing. We seem to live in an age when so many lack passion, are almost insipid. Yet when we turn to Jesus a passion, as you say, not from without but from within is ignited. Life has meaning and direction. Life has flavor and color. Wow. Thanks for your poem. I pray we will see a generation ignited by the Lord’s passion.
Amen, Craig! I so appreciate your heartfelt comment. God bless you!

Thank you, Jennifer. I will keep you in my prayers! 🙂 Many blessings!
