Last month I self-published a new poetry chapbook, “Faith & Doubt: Finding God Amidst the Brokenness of Life” available now on Amazon.
Over the past three years, I have been writing poetry, and going through some significant challenges in my personal life. I dug through the past few years worth of poetry and came up with over thirty poems I wrote during some of hardest times of my life. These poems are sometimes prayers, other times thoughts about my circumstances, and even psalms crying out to God for help, comfort, or wisdom.
I have formatted my chapbook, a collection of 36 poems in all, 12 of which are completely brand-new and never published anywhere else before, into 3 sections: Faith, Doubt, and a closing section entitled, Immanuel.
Immanuel is a Hebrew word meaning, “God with us.” Immanuel is first referenced in Isaiah 7 as a prophecy of a coming savior for the people of Israel. When Jesus arrives, the prophecy is fulfilled in Matthew 1:23. This section of poetry refers to how I have seen that aspect of Jesus continually over the past several years. He is not a far away God. He has always been right there with me through ever trial.
The next phase in my journey will likely involve learning some digital marketing tips to help me get the word out about my books. If you want to help support me and poetry I share here, consider buying one of my poetry books available on Amazon. Each of my collections are available in either eBook or paperback formats.
