Read Revelation. There really is practical, earthy, life-choice guidance from God in that book!

"Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our esthetic enjoyment in recognition of the pattern."~Alfred North Whitehead
Look for the patterns in Scripture. They are there!
For example, take Psalm 19. Most recently I wrote the following in summarizing it's form:
"The proper response to the words from nature and the words of the Bible is a prayer that my words show God's glory, too."
Some time ago I wrote this in honor of the mighty structure of this Psalm: Click here.
I remember, I tried once to write a poem to mimic its patterns, its structure, but fell so short of its majesty that I tore it up. Others of my Scripture-pattern poetry can be seen here.
You will increase your esthetic enjoyment if you'll look for the patterns as you read the Bible. I promise!
P.S. I found my poem on Psalm 19! Written in 1997. About the beauty in the Bible! You can read it here.
