Edit to Edify

A wisp of an idea
A thought
A fragile word
Fortified by others
A phrase
That’s almost heard

Strengthened into
Sentence shapes
With sense
And sayings too
Spreading meaning
Sharing, feeling
Forming something new

The battle to communicate
A skirmish for each line
To tame the mind
Leave noise behind
Create a page that’s true

With purpose and conviction
Bare boldness and desire
To speak into the ages
Filled with Holy Spirit fire
Transformed by painful edits
Refined revision and research
Help me, Lord, skillfully scribe
To edify Your church.

“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification” (Romans 14:19).

Edification is the spiritual building up of one another. Let’s do it.

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
