Reading poetry devotionally can help us focus and engage our senses and entire being in our experience of God’s presence. Poetry can help us process life and emotions—and see ourselves—in new ways, and thus be open to hearing God say fresh, new things to us.
During the month of April we are Celebrating:
- National Poetry Month
- and Spring!
Take time to experience, appreciate, and meditate on Re-awakenings and Renewal:
- in Nature all around us;
- in our Relationships to God and each other;
- of our Spiritual Life and Eternal Hope.
Reading inspirational poems can help you focus, “be still and know.”

Look instead with the eyes of your heart
to the Wounded who heals;
to the Throne that is true;
to the Lamb who was slain,
Christ the King.
