Living Light

Stirring The Deep

The Awakening


The Awakening

Light as a sword cuts through the darkness
Where it goes life replaces the corpses.

A thought dispelled, a bond broken
An act redeemed, a life spoken

The voice long silenced breaks forth in song
A melody of love is forged and strong.

Truth takes flight changing the course of time
In response the soul plays a new rhyme.

A thought dispelled, a bond broken
An act redeemed, a life spoken

Thoughts transcend to a new dimension
Creating a path of freedom in redemption.

Though a flower dies upon a field of gold
A new bloom rises bearing eternity untold.

A thought dispelled, a bond broken
An act redeemed, a life spoken

Eyes wide open see a crystal lake
An awakening brings birth of no mistake

Heaven rejoices in voices and strings
For one new birth among the beings.

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. Beautiful poem, Rachel. I didn’t know you wrote poetry as well.

  2. That’s great, Rachel. As a pianist, have you put it to music?


    • Hi Roger — my husband said the same thing … that is a big jump for me – but I never thought I would be writing poetry – we’ll see where the Spirit leads next 🙂

  3. Ah, very good indeed Rachel,
    I love your imagery, it sweeps the void and comes up with gold!

  4. Wow Rachel, I’ve read this a couple times and each time I read it, I see something else. The Holy Spirit said a lot in this poem.

  5. The Awakening…. nice title. Poetry breaks all the barriers and rules of regular writing. Keep with it. Not all that write poetry are prophetic but prophetic giftings usually write poetry. It’s an unction from the Holy One. Keep flowing with the Holy Spirit and follow His leading. He will develop the gift inside of you.

    • Hi Eric – thanks so much for you encouragement. I’ve written four this year — the lack of barriers allows for a lot to be said with a little – incredible really. And I do sense, a “flow”, quite exciting really.

  6. I really like how the first line of the poem starts 🙂
