I go to a prayer meeting on Monday mornings with InterVarsity. It's an incredibly refreshing and refocusing way to start my week. I absolutely love it!
This week, we decided to do a solitary prayer walk around the Creative Arts Center and be open to what God could say to us through the art pieces.
While I was walking around the outside of the CAC, I came to a huge wind chime. Standing there quietly, listening to God, I just really really felt like writing. Like writing a poem. I mean, I journal through my quiet times, but I have never ever written a poem that was not for a class. (Also, those poems tended to be incredibly cheesy. No matter what they were about!) But whatever. I'll do it. So I sat on the ground and pulled the lone piece of paper I had in my backpack out. And so I sat. Just breathing, listening. And I wrote my prayer.
as wind passes through a wind chime,
so Your spirit passes through my soul.
every inch, every part, every thought
this overflow i cannot contain
so, like the wind chime, i cannot
as Your wind passes through
