Light and Loveliness

Reflections of Emily Sue Allen

Life & Faith / Poetry

Carrying Wind

carrying wind, gentle swell
blow loose the knot in center
bring down the heart from anxious peak
to calm, to still, to settle

carrying wind send comfort near
to troubled mind and soul
breathe long and banish fearful thought
for truth to conquer all

carrying wind, the help You give
to any who should ask
be swift to anchor, swift to move
with wisdom in the dance

carrying wind, the hope of life
kept safe in rocky cleft
though worn and weary through the storm
in every way is blessed

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority.” Colossians 2:8-10
