Holy Fire Publishing (http://www.holyfirepublishing.com) releases “The Window Within” (Paperback, U.S. $19.99, ISBN: 978-1-60383-530-5). Steven T. Wellman’s “The Window Within” encourages readers to write about their brokenness and pain, to draw them in a closer walk with Jesus Christ.
“To glorify God in my brokenness and pain, as He creatively mends my broken pieces through His gift of writing. C.S. Lewis said it well, ‘In commanding us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him.’ Additionally, if the reader can relate and it draws them to Christ, then I have completed what I set out to do. Draw near to the LORD and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8)”
“Brokenness; living in a broken world. Viewing the world through the eyes of Jesus through our pain. God speaks to us through our pain. Some of my best writing has resulted from the LORD speaking to me through my pain.”
“A broken windowpane allows us to see more, to feel more. The window is not the view; it only allows the view. The broken pieces become a part of us; incremental myriads of colorful treasures through which we view the world around us. Communication is an art. When words are well chosen they come alive, pull the reader in, as emotions surface in a world that hides from truth. Writing bares the soul as it brings forth humbleness and humility and aims to touch a heart in need. “The Window Within,” my book of poems and prayers, hopes to color the reader’s world with a kaleidoscope of expressions. May they heal us and reveal to us...a world in which God intended for us to live.”
“A broken heart sees more / feels more / despite all the broken pieces / as one views a world of wonder through the eyes of Jesus...”
“Christ comforts us in our pain; writing about it is helpful as well as healing. Christ wants us to share that comfort with those who are hurting as we live in a broken and hurt world. We were created to display His grace and not hide our hurt in silence. We must be His witness. Our world needs more witnesses to tell His story! We must allow our brokenness to be on display to a hurting world as we allow God to collect all our broken parts, piece by piece, creating His original masterpiece; one that reflects His glory when our present circumstances do not.”
“Remembering / All the years spent / The magic / The moment / And how fast it went / Leaving lasting impressions / Learning valuable lessons / And only today / A chance to say / All it is I feel / Learning truth transforms / The eyes of the heart discern what is real / Measureless memories a part of me / The very heart of me / Pleasant / Priceless / Sometimes painstaking pictures are what I see / A fragile soul on the mend / A gracious blessed broken heart / This window within” – Steven T. Wellman.
