Warrior Poet Circle: Hope Is Wild
Hope isn’t flimsy, frail, or fragile
Hope is towering, strong, and agile
Hope won’t be tied to specific outcomes
Hope is tied to the God who reigns
Hope isn’t bowed by winds and changing seasons
Hope is renewed that every step is
Nearer to Him, nearer to fulfillment
Hope isn’t common, boring, or indifferent
Hope is exquisite, exciting, and passionate
My hope gets deferred and heart sick when I foolishly try
To limit God to my thoughts, my ways,
How I would change these circumstances
But my God is beyond limit, beyond reason, beyond compare
Hope placed there is adventure, confidently expressed
I will put my wild hope in this untamed God
And shame can’t find its way to me
Proverbs 13:12 Psalm 25:3 Romans 15:13
Welcome to the 35th edition of the Warrior Poet Circle. Time to pull up a seat, gather around the fire, and pour out our verses.
This is a repost of a poem I wrote in 2010. We have ministry guests in town and my wife and I helped someone move last night until around midnight so writing my poetry took a backseat this time! These words still stir me though and carry such deep meaning. I pray they touch you as well!
If you have a poem to add, please add it to the widget and be sure to visit the others who are a part too. Thank you!
