Batter My Heart: Four Reasons You Can’t Hear God

You can also watch this video on Rumble here.

At long last, I am back with another poetry video! This video uses John Donne’s “Batter My Heart” sonnet as the inspiration for a discussion about ways we can keep ourselves isolated from God. We also look at four reasons we may not be hearing God or seeing His work in our lives, and how to break out of these times (or accept them).

You can find the poem in full on The Poetry Foundation’s website here:….

This series uses poetry to start a conversation about how to live a life of holiness and to see God in the world around us.

The goal of this series is to help you discover a new way to find God in the midst of the modern world and to give you a new spring of material for meditation and prayer. Through the beauty of these verses, we can invite God to raise our minds and hearts to Him in a new way and stay connected to the One who made us.

In our next Poetry and Praise video, we’ll turn to the Romantics for a walk through nature and let them inspire a greater reflection on God’s omnipresent nature.

May God bless you!
