We express art in so many different ways. Some people can sing. Some people can write songs to be sung. Some people can play an instrument (or several) accompany the songs that are sung.
Then there are those who show up as the full meal deal.
Julie is one of those blessed ones, a blessing both for her, and to us. Check out her blog: https://isingbecauseimfree.wordpress.com And here is her poem.
RESTORE THE JOY by Julie Harris
It’s another silent night
I’m searching for your light
Seems You’re so far away
I need your grace today
something’s just not feeling right
though I cannot see, I trust you’re here with me
restore to me the joy, the joy
restore to me the joy of Your salvation
and grant me, grant me
a willing spirit to obey You
restore the joy
upon my knees I wait for you
search my heart and make it new
take away anything
within me hindering
distracting me from seeing Truth
Used with artist permission. Again, visit Julie and you won’t be disappointed.
