“Godly Dare”, a poem by Linda Willows (Know God, Trust God, Love Forward)

Godly Dare, by L.Willows (2012)

With heart in tow, I advance upon dare
The life that I have, is paved with deep care.
I must not want nor lose myself there…
Even my breath could be lost somewhere.

Spinning upon a few stones in the path,
I steady, and feel the
lonesome of wrath.
Dizzying memories
bring heartbeat
to fast
Before
the earth
seizes,
my soul
in firm grasp.

Horizons each new
and painted deep blue-
They beckon my passion
to deeply know You.

I hasten
to leave any hindrance undue.
Godly Sights, sacred dare,
Oh, Keep me with you.

Joshua 1:9 –“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Ezekiel 1:12 —“And each went straight forward; wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go, without turning as they went.”

“We belong together, unbound and without seams”…shared by LWillows


“We Belong Together, Unbound; Without Seams” by Linda Willows
These words fell from my heart from more than five years ago..such longing; seeking…yet meaning even more to me today as I soak in His gift of Love and experience being a guest of the Heavenly Host.

What has become “unbound” in me? What seam has fallen into surrender? What do we move forward without? Such a journey of joy and loss! I learned that in order to step forward into a birth – into That Boundless place of Spirit that beckons us — we must die to self…the seams let go, stitch by stitch as we achingly stretch forward to Love Itself.

“We reflect and become Sacred Waters in drift…
As each pours into the rivers of Your Love’s Gift.
Bound gently forwards and through life’s secret dreams;
We belong together, unbound –  and without seams.

Lift the equal of a rosebud or found earthly stone.
All find the Embrace; not a one left alone.
Secret dreams yield reveal in the souls of Divine guests…
You and I, together, adrift All in Love’s request.”

“In Solitude” ~ a poem by Linda Willows

In solitaire I walk this morn,
with non but light’s soft hue adorn.
Within this path that finds my soul,
I pray Gods’ keeping, life found whole.
For in taking of all things;
the swift removal times can bring…
I root myself upon one Bright
and dearest thing with every might…
In solitaire the Soul is known
begotten, loved and never Lone.
