I wrap this piece of leather round and around my wrist…
Over and over, binding the truth to my arm.
It remains to be seen
Some of these words
But I keep them in front of me
Ever and often.
awakened to strength,
LIGHT up DARK places
Dare I believe this? Dare I trust my Life Giver to call me and my words and actions life giving? Dare I believe that I am His, accepted as a gift to Him, and from Him? Dare I believe that my actions can change the world? Dare I believe this enough to do the things He’s entrusted me with? Shall I allow myself to be awakened by His strength rather than failing in my own? Dare I devote myself recklessly and entirely to Him? Dare I hope? Will I remember to speak kindness? Will I allow the Light of the One who called Light into existence to light up the dark places in my world?
My toe timidly touches trebled waters of trust. You can watch me…watch me try…dare you join me?

Poetic truth! I love it!
Thanks for sharing, enlightening, and challenging!
Thanks for coming by. I’m glad this ministered to you. I continue to lift up your family in prayer…
I love this… confidence in who He made you as and He loves it 🙂
He is good, to give me this bracelet, as He gave the stars to Abram…
Thanks for sharing this!
You’re welcome, dear!
Wrapping the truth around your arms. You remind me of the Jews so faithful in prayer and worshiping God. They wrapped the word of God on their arms and head. thanks
I wonder if that is what the jewelry artist was going for? I’m not sure, but I sure do love it. It’s my favorite piece of jewelry!!
I was thinking the same as “happy girl.” I really like it. I often write my quiet time thought on the palm of my hand, but this is so much “neater” and nicer. I always want to remind myself of God’s truths to me. Great post!
It has been a beautiful reminder of His love and truth for me…
nice…really like those words of truth and the tangible reminder as you wrap it…honestly i would be playing with it all day…smiles.
I do, I tighten and retighten it. I allow my eyes to rest on a new confession every day…It’s been a magnificent reminder of how He sees me.
That’s really a cool piece!
i love this. i think i need to look into getting one. i love how you let God change you, mold you. your life shines beauty.
His beauty peeks through small cracks of the darkness that surrounds me…and as I peel back the layers of my dirt, may I shine brighter and brightly for Him. You shine brightly, sweetly, friend!
it’s a little different but i have the hebrew word for beloved tattooed on my wrist to be a visible reminder to trust, to live as one who is loved. i fail often, but there is grace in that, too.
I think that’s a lovely idea Misty! I’d love to see it!
Beautifully said, Kim. Thanks for the good night kiss.
You are very welcome. I’ve continued to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
