Day 25: Finding Hope in Unmet Expectations – Because


Because there are times
I wish I knew the answers,
God holds me together with questions.
He is the first answer
and the last question.
Because there are times
when heaven looks more like
the family at home than the
place I imagine where
God holds me together with answers.


Friend, this is Day 25 of a series of posts for the month of October. I’m joining Kate Motaung over at Five Minute Friday for the yearly Write 31 Days challenge. My topic is “Finding Hope in Unmet Expectations” because that’s what my book is about as well. On Fridays, I will write you a poem. Each day has a different word prompt. I hope you enjoy.

Today’s word prompt is BECAUSE.
