Faith grown – 8/11/12

Ha!  I’m told I over think things sometimes. (I don’t think I over think usually, do I, really?  🙂  ) Even my Gallup Strengths (Strategic, Ideation, Learner, Data …. and oh yes, Competition) seem to lend credence to the idea. I find it interesting to think about the ways faith works and plays a part in most everyday activities, even (and perhaps especially) as I find my faith in the God of Love growing).

faith grown
with use
not quite a habit
it seems there are voices
credible voices
that question
faith’s direction
at every step

I can quiet them
with continued exercise
of the faith connections
I have with people,
events,
God
but they never go away
and I always have
this niggling wonder
if some
of my faith
might be
misplaced

About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
