Endless Hunger – A Poem

My weary, dry bones cry out for your covering, For the life they in their own power could never birth. Flesh on my bones, Breath in my lungs, My exhale a cry for more, My inhale a suffocated man’s freedom. Wrap yourself around me as a covering, As a tunic pure as snow for me,…

Humility

Proverbs 22:4 “Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.” Pride is a sneaky thing. When I was confronted with the fact that I had some seriously deep-rooted habits and mindsets of pride during my first week of the lecture phase, I decided to attack it head on…
