The Blank Path

I think this blank slate phase

is also

me finally having to work for something.

Not have it given like Joseph’s favor, placed

upon him by God and received by others in

God’s own timing.

NO.

This is me

learning

how to take ownership of my life.

To ask myself the hard questions,

to dive to the depths of my soul

and embrace the answers I find there,

either in loving hug or determined grip.

This blank slate is the concrete

from which God will build my path–

the path He meant for me to be on all along.

This blank slate path . . .

it is emptied, like my hands, so I can receive in full

what He has purposed to be mine.
