The Poetry That Is Life

Trying to find the beauty, the poetry, in every moment



Faith, Hope, and Love

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13



For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:10

My story of faith begins at an early age. I was seven when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior, and I don’t remember as much about the “experience” as I wish I did. It was during a revival, and I remember feeling like I needed to go forward, but I was a shy child and was embarrassed to go up in front of everyone, so I didn’t make my profession of faith until the next night.

The Year in Review, Part 2

Summer 09 was a struggle in some ways, because I found myself outside of the “Harding Bubble,” away from my new-found friends, and not at all sure what I should do with what I had learned the past school year, and what I should do with myself.  Continue reading “The Year in Review, Part 2”


Why are human beings idiots? 

Why are we selfish?  Why do we constantly turn to our own desires and our own “abilities” in an attempt to be whole, to feel loved, and to feel worthwhile?  Why do we always think things will be better our way, when God proves time and time again that our way is empty, purposeless, and futile?

Why do we love our sin so much when God has so much more to offer?  Why is that so hard to see? 

Why is the unknown so scary?  Even when God is control of it?

Why am I so willing to trust everyone but God?  Why is it so hard to put Him first in my life?

Why do I so often realize these things, only to quickly fall back into purposeless monotony?  How do I make a change once and for all?

Father, I pray that you will strengthen me enough to be able to keep this promise to you:

You are my forever love

You are my forever love

You are my forever love

You are my forever love

From the bottom of my heart I’ll sing to you

From the depths of who I am I’ll love you

With everything inside I’ll run to you

Because everything I’ve become I owe to you

“Forever Love” by Francesca Battistelli
