morning star, explode

Who am I?
That you gave authority to fight
and stop lying down
to die.
your words came from fire
lit by a holy match
to watch as sin burns away
before these opened eyes.
Every morning, you align
this heart
Morning star, stay with me
keep my hand in yours.
You chose me.
You called my name-
every morning.
Complete this exploding soul, I beg.
My roots are bare, needing your earth
to feed me.
I’m leaving the giant
and awake in my veins.
I waited for this long
to know what I believe
to say these words
explode me.
Inspired by on the shores album.

    1. Thank you so much for saying that. I’m encouraged to know it’s found meaningful to someone besides me (ha). It pours out of me, so much worship in these words for me. How I praise my morning star.
      I love you! (& bill). Please tell him hello!


  1. I second Mom’s comments. Sharing your spiritual journey and the way you share it, is so inspirational and encouraging. We all so yearn to have that deep, personal connection with our Heavenly Father! Your words bring beautiful expression to those deep longings within us!! Thank you precious!

    Psalm 63:1–O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.

    Isaiah 26:9–At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently…

    1. For years, a decade even, I have struggled with my expression of faith — is this a strange relationship I have with Christ? Does this fit the “mold” of the church? How will this be perceived by fellow Christians? I struggled with delving in, accepting that my faith was authentic, and pursuing a non-traditional faith (to me and my upbringing). There is a woman I strongly admire (and hope to someday meet) for her public expression of faith and freedom in displaying a passionate love for our God. She has challenged me in such a way that rattles my little bones, has awoken my stagnant veins, and forces me to sing! I don’t know who reads this, and I don’t particularly care because this is my devotion. If God has put it in my heart, I will sing! I’m am always so thankful to hear that God can use my words and thoughts as a testimony of His great love and devotion to us!

      Earnestly, I thirst. My soul does long, diligently! Those verses are bold!

      Thanks for your comment, Michelle. Your love and clear desire of Christ continually inspire me to be authentic and steadfast in my personal life.
