Everyone who embarks on a journey of faith takes a different path, and author C. Montgomery is no exception. In this new collection of poems, she gives readers a close-up view of her experiences on her self-titled “road to Damascus.” Each poem portrays a specific event that touched her life, and she says the words were inspired by God who guided her hand. The poems allow Ms. Montgomery to review her life and see the amazing effect God’s unconditional love had on keeping her protected, even when times seemed darkest.
“As i Walk: My Spiritual Journey” features three sections: Acknowledgement and Praises, Tending the Temple and Preparing Our Youth. The poem “A Storm Within” acknowledges the author’s regret for past sins and hope for the future: “I am face with my sins, and the life that I’ve kept. So unsure of my fate, I just shamefully wept. But, praise be to God, for in my darkest hours. He has come to my aid, displaying His holy power.” The selection “The Saints of Tomorrow” calls on parents to lead their children to Christ: “We will grow into saints, from what you have sown. For, the teaching of God where He is unknown. Lend to us now, we are eager to borrow. For, we are Gods’ saints, His light of tomorrow,” The poem “Dwelling in Truth,” in the book’s finale section, asks people to tend their bodies properly and explore the truths in the Bible: “Listen to your body, for Christ is its light. Invest in God’s Word, to prepare it for night.” Whether calling on parents to shepherd their children or sinners to repent of their misdeeds, it’s clear Ms. Montgomery is passionate about sharing her love of the Lord through this debut poetry collection.
This is the first book for author C. Montgomery, a retiree of the U.S. Postal Service who has no formal training in literary, nor poetic writing. The Detroit native, a grandmother, was inspired to write during a period of fasting to God about three years ago and writes that she hopes to serve the Lord through this project.
