Meditation : The Bowed Head

I have been writing poems and short stories for years, some of which I have published independantly. I also blog. Writing is a loved hobby.


Assume The Position

A bowed head mostly means one of two things:

A soul in desolation, or

A soul in prayer.

The first is mired in hopelessness, whereas the other is looking for and holding on to Hope.

Many a times, my head is bowed in despair and hopelessness. My burden is not just upon my weary shoulders, but it is big enough to make me hunch over in great distress. It is enough to make a bowed head out of mine.

But you know, the one important thing to remember about a bowed head is that it is a classic position of prayer: a bowed head, a humble spirit, a needing soul, a prayer created in heartfelt design, a whisper of rememberance, and a call for help.

A bowed head is a good thing when there is Hope; this which leads to prayer and petition.

Try it. When your head is bowed, simply take the time to pray and the Lord will hear you.

I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day."

— Abraham Lincoln
