Holes to Heaven

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“I wonder too… if the rent in the canvas of our life backdrop,
the losses that puncture our world, our own emptiness,
might actually become places to see.
To see through to God.”
~ Ann Voskamp in "One Thousand Gifts"
 
Have you begun to doubt a God
Who’s taken part of what has made you whole?
Have heartaches of the past left tears
That let the joy seep slowly from your soul?
 
What if those holes are places where
Our hearts could peer past all the hurt and pain
To catch a clearer glimpse of God,
If only for a moment’s brief refrain.
 
For in that moment’s glimpse, we see
A God of greater mercy, love, and grace
Than ever could we know had we
Not gone into that dark and lonely place.
 
So if, indeed, your life’s canvas
Is riddled with the gaping tears of life,
Remember they are glimpses into
Joy to be revealed in Jesus Christ.
 
 
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worthy to be compared with the glory
which shall be revealed in us.”
Romans 8:18 NKJV

Plus I do a personal devotional (I am a Christian) and in addition perform a workout, while me about the next benefit.
As significant as the absorption of natural essential oils through massaging in to the skin could be
the vital intake of energy through olfaction and direct absorption towards the brain with inhalation. Yet due to his great love and
gratitude, a precious mindfulness of how much has been forgiven, Paul's heart finds joy when he could be fully aligned with
the heart of God toward others--to, through and in Christ,
save the lost as well as set the oppressed free.
