Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Wrestling like Jacob

Posted Thursday, March 28, 2013

I sleep
I dream
Experience adventure
Looking for peace

Is that what Jacob sought?
What was he wrestling God for?
To win?
To get what he wanted?

He demanded a blessing
Wouldn't let God go
Without it

What are you demanding from God
Right now?
What has he already given you?
Over and over again
