I truly believe that my journey with God has allowed an incredible creative spirit to open up within me.
A silent retreat when I was at a particularly low point in my life seemed to unleash this creativity and I offer it now in the hope that others may be inspired to find that release
The title of my blog was inspired by a poem I wrote about the Holy Spirit. Bo Ruach Elohim means ‘Come, Spirit of God’ in Hebrew
Most ancient of time and space;
hovering over the formless void
of waters, dark and barren.
An electric pulse,
vibrating with energy –
igniting the universe;
quickening the human race.
God’s winged messenger –
pure white against the vivid blue
of heaven; in fluttering descent –
To declare authenticity,
In fluid melody from angel tongues.
A pinion crown
overarching gentle majesty personified.
Spiritus Sanctus, animator of our souls,
Christ’s breath in dwelling,
received as the gift of a risen Messiah.
That witnesses love in action,
to comfort and sustain
and advocates the sinners’ cause
across the suspended bridge
between heaven and earth
of a Saviour’s outstretched arms.
Pentecostal inspiration; flickering tongues
in flaming titian hues,
sheathed within a noisy rushing tempest,
galvanising hearts and minds
with a white hot passion,
that reaches out in cooling balms,
enabling everything that has breath
to praise the Lord!
