The Untitled Post

This is month six of keeping up with the Post-a-Day Challenge, and so far I haven’t missed a day. In fact, there were a few days when I posted twice. But for some reason this week I’m feeling overwhelmed and a bit weary with the task of writing. I just don’t seem to have anything to say. At least not anything that is done rattling around in my head and ready for publishing. So I decided to post a poem that I originally wrote for Idylls for the King, a Christian Literary Blog.

And just to prove how weary I’ve been feeling, I forgot to give this post a title until I saw the first comment on it in my dashboard and there was no title.

I Wonder?

I wonder
What would I do
If I didn’t know You?

I wonder
Where would I be
If You hadn’t saved me?

I wonder
Would I know love
If it didn’t come from above?

I wonder
When my life comes to an end
How many angels will You send?

I wonder
Will my family know You
When their time comes, too?

I wonder
Many things, but this I know
To You I must go.

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29 (NLT).

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. I think it is quite an accomplishment, to have posted every day for six months! I don’t think I could ever do that…kudos to you!!
    Thank you for inspiring me every single day…
    God bless 🙂

    • Barbee, I couldn’t do it without the Lord, but I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me! You could, too, if He called you to. 🙂 But not everyone is called to a daily blogging ministry. I’m so glad I can be an inspiration to you. Peace, Linda

  2. Thank you, Linda

    It’s still beautiful and thanks for sharing it over here too 🙂

    It’s amazing how God works … Our church is doing a 31 day challenge using the book of Proverbs. Each day we read one chapter, listen for specific verse/verses He’s speaking through and write our thoughts on it. I said to myself, I should share this with you to see if you want to use this idea as part of your post-a-day challenge 🙂

    There’s much He has deposited in you. Thank you for continuing to share with us. I woke up this morning thinking about what you shared yesterday … I don’t like the idea of pushing Him to the point of ‘have thine own way’ but I know I’ve done it before. Thanks for pointing my thoughts in the searching direction. You have no idea how this has caused me to think 🙂


    • Ann, The Proverbs challenge sounds like a good one. I’m trying to get through Jeremiah right now, and there are some ideas I’ve had for posting based on what I’ve read there. I know that the weariness is just the enemy trying to slow me down, and I need to rest in Jesus and He will give me the strength and the ideas for what to write each day. Thank you for the encouragement! Peace, Linda

  3. Praying for you, Linda, as you do so much! No wonder He had me thinking about you posting everyday.
    This poem is so true of our wondering. There is so much that I don’t know or understand outside of He is mine and I am His.
    God bless you and keep you and give you rest!
    love, deb

    • Deb, Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I do love when the Holy Spirit impresses upon us to pray for someone or something and we don’t even know why. But if we are faithful to offer those prayers, He is faithful to answer. Peace, Linda

  4. Glad you repost it here Linda. Made me pause and realized that that could be me wondering. Thank you for taking the lead — to Him 🙂

  5. I really identified with this post. I have spells where I am not able to post, too. I really liked this poem. It is so direct and earnest. Parts of it made me think of this passage:

    63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

    64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

    65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

    66From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

    67Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

    68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

    69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. John 6:63-69


    • Theresa, Thank you for adding the passage from John. That is one of my favorites, though I find verse 66 to be so sad. And yet I choose to answer as Peter did; He will never leave me and I will never leave Him. Peace, Linda
