~Thoughts of Today~

A Poem By Libby // 3/24/2019

My soul is bare...
there is nothing left, not a single drop
to burst into a fountain of magic.
There is nothing,
no fantasy sublime with which to enchant.
My words have failed me—
fled from my mind into
darkness.
All that I own are
the little fancies—
sweet, wispy dreams
that elude my grasp...
and gone are the days that held my clearest thoughts.
Deep is the cavern where the
lost have fallen.
I am left with only a prayer,
heartfelt for its vagueness,
a bare offering of my soul
for Thee.

Oh this is so, so good. These moments are so broken yet simultaneously beautiful. And oh, so necessary. Thank you for poetically expressing these deep thoughts, and sharing them, too.

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

Thank you, Damaris. I'm glad

Thank you, Damaris. I'm glad I'm not alone :)

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper
