Tell Me Lies

Ask me a question,
Lay your insecurities at my feet.
Wish for the answer
You wish you would hear...
Wait silently for confirmation
Of an opinion you value--
A diamond put on display
Encased in a box of glass
And pray.
Pray I cradle it gently,
Take it out, put it on satin sheets,
That I watch over it with care
Not cast aside worthless junk...
Wrap it up in Christmas paper
Tie a bow on it
And hand it back to you unscathed.
Hope that I don't mar it
With my unique fingerprints
Or clean the dust
Burying the sense of fragility.
Trust me not to shatter
The illusion--
Hand you a lump of coal
And tell you it's a diamond.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
