A Walk with Lonely

burdenislight

Cozy in my nook

Reading a good book

I hear

Whispered in my Spirit

Step outside, only He knows what you may find

Could be thwarting, could be kind

Snakey vines

Climb inside

Your heart

Less pure, more tart

The sky, light gray

Tweeting birds fly away

To higher ground

Where they know to be found

By He

Who made the tallest trees

Be still

For around the corner awaits a tender thrill

Pale pink

In Autumn’s wake

door

Go ahead, knock

And knock again

For I hold the keys

To every victory, to every friend

The Lord established His throne in heaven and His kingdom rules over all.

Praise the Lord, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His bidding, who obey His word.

Praise the Lord, all His heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will.

Praise the Lord, all His works, everywhere in His dominion.

Praise the Lord, my soul (Psalm 103: 19-22).

I have wandered in the desert of loneliness, sometimes for years. This poem is written in honor of all who are struggling with feeling alone. There are some close to me I keep in prayer for this reason.

The closer I lean into who Jesus is, the less lonely times I have. He promises to be with us until the end of time (Matthew 28:20). His promises are true, never to fail us. It also helps me to remember Jesus reigns over all areas of my life, not just certain aspects.

The photos in this post are mine.

The book is The Burden is Light by Eugenia Price.

If you have any questions about Jesus, leave them in the comments or feel free to email me at juliedibblespeaks@gmail.com.

A new post “It’s How We Roll in Christ” is up at https://julidibblewrites.wordpress.com/

Have a beauty-full rest of your Sunday.

In Him,

Julie

  1. I love Eugenia Price’s writings, I think I have read almost all of her books. It’s been a long time since I read “The Burden is LIght” though. My favorite was “The Lighthouse” and the other two in that series. Sometimes I think a good book can feel like a friend, especially if it encourages us to open our eyes to those around us who are feeling left out and alone. Thank you for being one who encourages me to stay persistent in my prayers for those that I love also.

    1. Dear Bettie, so glad to hear you have read Eugenia! My sister in the faith just gifted me 3 of her books to encourage my writing. I started with this one. I will keep you posted on what others I have. I cant recall at the moment. And once again, I am thankful to Him for giving me words to minister to others, even if like me, it is a reminder we need to carry other’s burdens for a time. May He bless your rest in Him, my dear sister.
