mouthpiece design

These words swirling and floating through my mind

like leaves caught up in a gale

must escape me.

They must be wrestled and pinned down

before they can leave my mind to rest.

The pen in my hand my weapon

the paper journal pages my battlefield.

I must be still and listen to how those words should flow

waiting for inspiration and wisdom and honesty to coax them out.

Reading God’s word is how I fill my soul

and in that overflow the words come.

This is the plan God designed for me to be his mouthpiece.

  1. “Reading God’s word is how I fill my soul, and in that overflow the words come.” Such an important reminder that all good things must start with God. As Matthew 12:34 reminds us, “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”

    • Thanks Trisha. I’ve been really learning this lately. With all the chaos going on, it’s easy to literally go crazy. God really impressed on me to seek him first and everything else will fall in line. Dinner will get made, laundry will get folded and put away. Thanks for stopping by, Trisha!

  2. What a beautiful piece! “The pen in my hand my weapon

    the paper journal pages my battlefield.

    I must be still and listen to how those words should flow

    waiting for inspiration and wisdom and honesty to coax them out.” I resonate.

    • Thank you so much Stephanie! It’s a scary, brave, bold, thing to call oneself a writer. It took a long time wrestling with doubt before I finally believed I could claim that title. I appreciate you stopping by!
