“Mercy Grants from Moments Felled” sacred prose from LWillows


Lifting prayer beyond my sight
Into Heaven’s holy might.
Here I send from inside heart’s pew,
This the vow, my trust in You.

Mercy grants from moments felled,
Surrendered, lost; the storms left quelled.
Wind whispers rendered- plead for me,
left, All at the foot of Holy Tree.

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
-Romans 8:26

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
-Psalm 9:10


“Heart Breaking, God Quaking” sacred poetry from LWillows; Holy falling into the unseen, the valley, the pasture that waits; All of His Gardens, His Treasured Estates.

All held dear does fall with ache,
Inside out, each fragment breaks.
Breathing halts to form a pause
Unseen is birthing a Holy Cause.

Would this moment not forsake
All my heart’s dear loved in a quake.
But rather lift another body Of,
Ript from something, some part of love.

Take away what values not
The treasures gained in life’s onslaught.
Here in soliloquy humbled – Thine,
Is soul that bends this day, Your brine.

Heart breaking, God quaking
Holy falling into –
the unseen, the valley, the pasture that waits;
All of His Gardens, His Treasured Estates.
