Vessels of Love We are all vessels of love - jars filled with tealights, made to cradle your flame and bring it to the darkness. Our failure is not in missing the mark but in failing to believe we play a part in the chapters of your story. You've imparted more power to us than we often see; to your own you've given the keys to the kingdom. And while sovereign, you've set us free and called us to a life beyond bending the knee. We've been commissioned to raise the banner and march to war to the ends of the Earth armed not with swords of shame, nor arrows dipped in guilt, nor tongues like battering rams designed to beat down doors that are locked, rather dazzled with something foreign, alien, a splendor only heaven could impart; You've given us the shield of the Spirit and placed in our hands the lance of love, ready to engage both friend and foe for both are worthy of you because the battle for that right was waged and won long ago. We are all vessels of love to bring hope and hang a light, to give the lost something to follow on their cold, dark night. Justin Farley
My current collections of poetry, all available on Amazon, all written by me, Justin Farley. A Voice in the Wilderness is a chapbook of Christian Poetry, written about the joys, doubts, struggles, and sorrows of the Christian life. Nature’s Bounty is a collection of nature poetry celebrating my love for the outdoors. And Thorns of Love is the first book of three in a series of poems about love, this one being sad, breakup poems.
I write to reach the hearts of the searching, the suffering, the still fighting. I write to soothe my soul and hopefully to soothe yours too. I write to celebrate and attempt to put words to the beauty of life. Here are my published books on Amazon. More to come. A huge, humble thank you to anyone who supports my work.
