I am earth,
grounded and broken
ready for tilling
waiting with expectation
I am water,
other times calm
bursting with life
if you really want to see.
I am wind,
free as a breeze
place of origin unknown
place of destination uninhibited.
I am fire,
burning hot for You
flames extinguishing remnant of me,
leaping, and licking earth
with wild tongues of Your glory.
Which of the elements are you?

I think I have bits of all those elements in me somewhere! Okay, you have me curious. What city do you live near?
It’s my kind of town, Chicago is…
earth, wind, fire, water…can we add ‘sky’ and ‘sun’. God is all those things. And in all those things.
what am I? now, I’m going to have to ponder that, Kim.
loved this poem.
Please let me know when you’ve decided! 🙂
Beautiful! All we are is only because of Him!
…and all He is can never be contained!
I love how you write…I see myself these words…have a blessed monday~
Love this! What conference are you going to? I’m heading to one in July:)
I think I’m more like the earth, broken and waiting for God’s tilling. Great and thoughtful words, kd. Inspirational as usual!
I think I’m going with water…
This is so lovely! I like that part about the water being wild sometimes,,,don’t know why, but that’s speaking to me today…
Thanks for the encouragement Laura…I’d love to hear about it if you thought of why wildness spoke to your heart.
i want to be a fire.. a wildfire that spreads for Jesus! 🙂 loved your writing.. glad to read your thankful list to.. that ministered to me just being thankful with you! praying for you
Let’s torch the world together! Torch it for Him! Thanks for the prayers, dear friend.
“if you really want to see” – oh, I love that line. I want to have that spirit – to really want to see the hearts and story of those God puts in my path – and how especially rich when there are people who really want to see what’s deep down in me!
The greatest gift we can give others is our true self…
This is one of my deepest desires as well…for others to see Him in me and what I do…
