My Muddled Mind

Muddled thoughts
confused, chaotic
ever churning night to day

Their origin
their destination
It seems I cannot sway

Yet El Roi
the God who sees me
invites me to come and pray

He knows each thought
each crazy fear
won’t leave me in dismay


I haven’t been writing much lately. Can’t quite pin anything down. But it’s Open Link Night at dVerse Poets Pub so I decided to check out the Quadrille prompts that I’ve missed and write one for OLN.


About Linda Kruschke

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.

    Nice phrase “churning night to day” and the invitation to come and pray.

  4. We all get in a muddle.

    Nice work with this poem.

  5. I understand the confusion prevailing as a result of those muddled thoughts and the need for something or somebody so that we can find a resolve.

  6. Love the solace you get… we all need a way to vent our muddled minds

  7. Sounds like my mind so often. Just a season, I’m sure!

  8. Lovely verse and well achieved. Out of chaos, we pray for order. I echo that prayer Linda. Good to read you again!

  9. V.J. Knutson says:

    For one with “muddled thoughts” this flows quite fantastically.

  10. we must heed the invitation!

    • Yes, that’s so true. My routine was changed at the beginning of April and it affected my prayer time. It took me awhile to realize just what a bad idea it was to not immediately find an alternate time to speak to God about the things on my heart.

  11. Ah this❤️
