I admire your faith n God in that you truly believe He has a purpose for your life even when things aren't going well. And love can go a long way. Your testimony tells a lot,

    Thank you for reading.
    It has been a difficult time for everyone and it is not over.
    If you expand on what I wrote- what will be our collective story as a nation be?
    People will not look back at the difficult events. They will look back and gain understanding from how we handled the difficulties.
    That is always the real story- how did we manage, how do we go forward.

    My writing has shifted from my past limitations to what I am choosing to do. How do I change my inability into ability?
    As for myself and my family - we have found that strength in God.

A very powerful poem about faith, I especially like the last stanza:
"... but If today was my last day on earth, I would know that God had purpose for me. In the act of loving, I have learned to love myself. His plan for my life has healed my heart.:
It's hard to love anyone else if we cannot love ourselves and God first.

    Thank you for reading,
    I use my writing to figure out how I truly feel about the things that come into my life.
    I am never sure where I will end up with any given piece.
    But through the process of writing, I have found unexpected answers.
    The answers are often cathartic- my writing will bring me to tears. The tears come from finally being able to find peace.
    I know with all my heart, when my life is over that I gave my all. I think that is all God wants from us.

This is a very sweet poem about looking at things outside of our selves. Being self serving and caring for others, can at many times be our true goals in lives. Don't be afraid of it!

    Thank you for reading.
    I do know that God has called me to get right down in the mess and help. I know the times that I do say yes- God gives me the capacity to do hard things.
    I am disabled w mental health issues, but I decided to do biblical counseling this past year. What a journey.
    What a faith and trust I have learned. And I have found joy.
    I had to find my identity in God. I have moved away from my diagnosis. I am not saying that I am cured. It is just not my story anymore.
    I am just coming back to my writing and will be sharing parts of this very difficult year- 2020.

Flyaway1 I am not ever going to rate down a presentation of such faith for technical issues. So you get my five because in the end it is simply our Faith that matters. With all that said, I do not want to seem obtrusive in any way, but this website http://www.shadowpoetry.com/resources is a great resource to see all types of poems and structures. Your work is presented more as prose not poetry. I hope this is received with agood heart coming from a person with a good heart...

    I usually learn a lot from my reviewers.
    I was n the process of submitting this as a story and saw the faith contest. I did not see or my eyes skiped the word poetry. I have entered poems in this contest a few times.
    That being said - I welcome all editing issues.
    I have no training in writing- so thanks for the link. I will check it out. It might open some different ways to write new material.

God has a purpose for everyone
God Uses Our Inability
by Flyaway1

Hello, my friend,

Wonderful poem about your purpose in life. I am not sure but it sounds like you have a mental illness... maybe I am wrong. I am bipolar and throughout my life, I had to deal with feeling unbalanced. Now I am leading a normal life and have balance in my life. I know there are times when only God can help. Great entry for the faith poetry contest.

    Thank you for reading,
    I do have mental health issues. My doctor says I have extremely complicated mood swings effected by childhood trauma.
    Like you, God is greater than all of this. Perhaps, my mental illness is God?s greatest gift to me. I have to lean into God for His strength daily.
    This past year, God gave me joy and there is no turning back. This may be my last write that includes this struggle. I am moving forward.
    ( I am not cured- but I know the one who keeps me intact)

We were made by God. Without Him, life has no purpose, and without purpose, life has no meaning. I am sure He will make a better choice for us if we have faith in Him. Thanks for sharing the lovely short poem. Good luck!

    Thank you for reading.
    During this time of isolation, I have learned to sit with many uncomfortable things. I have not been able to write. ... but I do know that God has been writing in my heart. Through this process, I have found a joy I never knew.

You expressed your thoughts/feelings well for this contest entry. I clearly could see your point of how you felt. Then in the end you realized that your 'suffering' had healed you in a way that only God could have done. Best wishes.
Respectfully, Jan

    Thank you for reading. I have not had any ability to write for awhile. The words stopped.

    Covid and family problems have weighed me down. At the same time God has grown me. I have walked some hard roads with those I love.

    My writing is changing looking forward and leaving the past behind.

This writing shows a true understanding of God's presence in our lives. It is so good to read that you have been cared for through the years of turmoil. It sounds like you are bestowing love generously. This is a good entry for the Faith contest. Good luck.

    I stopped writing for awhile, not by choice. No words would come.
    My writing is changing - writing less about the past and more about the joy of moving forward.

Yes indeed, we all have a reason for existence, a special gift we bring that only we possess, we can never say God leaves us bereft, every man woman and child has purpose, and He says "it is good" beautifully written my friend, no one could have said it better, well done, blessings Roy

    I know you know the same God that I do. I believe in a very big God, for I have seen things come to be. Not only has my heart been growing, but I have seen the hand of God in my family. God always shows up. Even the ability to believe is a gift.

    Thank you for reading,
    I lost my words for awhile, but I have grown in my understanding. A time out to lean into God and seek Him.

    One day I was out on a long run, when God?s joy slammed into my heart.
    I thought- so this is joy.

    This has been a life changer.
