How I Sense Your Embrace Through Your Creation

Awakened to the light radiating into my face,
the enveloping warmth spreads
reminding me of your abiding presence
Spring winds breathe on my skin
lulling me to sleep
whispering that you remain awake
The aroma of freshly cut grass lingers
surrounding me with the smell of your beauty
a fragrance bearing witness to your hand
Everywhere I go, Oh God, you embrace me
through all that your hands have made
affirming that you neither sleep nor slumber
You are ever over and around me.

    Beautiful poem, Stephanie! I love all the ways God embraces us through His creation. He absolutely leaves me in awe. And you’re right. We can use our five senses to be aware of His embraces for us. Have a great weekend!

    This is beautiful, and just right for spring when creation shouts God’s glory. I like to write poetry for the #fmf prompts too (I’m number 14 this week).

      Sarah, I loved your poem. I left a comment. Poetry is a new but old medium for me (used to write poems as a kid). The Holy Spirit breathed these words into me in poetry this time and during the prompt for “abandon.” Thank you for stopping by!
