A Soul’s Journey – Part 1

The soul had left her home many years ago
looking for freedom and finding only emptiness.
Many dark and troubling paths she had wandered
looking for truth and finding only pieces of it.

Many attractive salesmen offered her their truths.
They seduced her with promises of a life of ease
and liberation from the strict confines of her past,
but the soul found all their promises empty and false.

Finally, worn out by years of fruitless searching,
the soul turned her thoughts once more toward her home,
never daring to imagine that she could ever actually return.

“Oh no,” she thought, “they would never welcome me back,
not after all I have done, not after how far I’ve strayed.”

But still her heart longed to see her home once more.
If she could just catch a glimpse of her home,
even from afar, she reasoned to herself,
then she could survive her life in exile,
or so she thought.

But the road back home turned dark
and treacherous and she became lost
as doubts and fears assailed her from every side.
The soul struggled on alone until she verged on despair
and in her terror and anguish she cried out for help.

And in that her darkest hour,
the cry of the soul was heard.

  2. I am eager to read part 2 and beyond, although the last two lines seem to briing it to an expected and acceptable ending.
    Reminiscent of the Prodigal Son.

  3. I was listening to an audio book the other day and this little nugget resonated with me, that we are either running to God or running away from God! The Lord is longing for us to come home like the prodigal son the father is waiting with arms open wide to embrace and receive us back whatever the things we have done in the searching for that place of significance. Love your thoughts and insights, very inspiring. Thanks
