fettered faith

~ ~ ~

Overripe fruit
hanging heavy with longing

for His harvest hand...
for His touch...
for His voice...

that still turns water into wine

"Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
-John 2:10


  1. oh, heavy with longing heart,
    I join you with hunger
    for release
    and call out for both of us
    for massive grace to
    break out of these cocoons
    and revel in joy
    over the gorgeous wings
    getting strong in the struggle
    that will thrill us with lift and flight:)
    With you,

  2. I love the way you used the
    to propel the feel of these words...

  3. Don't you find that whenever He reveals His plan, it's always the best? It always feels as though He waited an awfully long time. But, it's always a beautiful thing. Yes?
