Ashes The fire blazed and in the flames I gazed upon the fuel - the false self feeding this renewal. It is awareness that strikes the match and dispatches the light roaring into the darkness. Though this heat is intense, it only speaks of how immense your glory and goodness truly are. I fed myself to the flames of your love, resigned to the reality of how fragile, how weak, how lost I am without the gift of your grace. It is only when we're burnt to ashes that like the phoenix who hatches beneath the layers of what was do we get to experience the resurrection of what is and taste the sweetness of what is still to come.

Hello, everyone! I have recently published my first chapbook of Christian poems titled “A Voice in the Wilderness – A Chapbook of Poems about God”. This has been developed and polished over the past six months or so. I am happy with the final product and hope you find encouragement in the poems but also a validation that the spiritual life is not all sunshine and rainbows. We all struggle. We all have periods of questions and/or doubt. But it is the yearning that keeps us coming back for more and allows us to experience joy.
