Great Are You Lord

Great Are You Lord

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My anxious heart turned angry. Angry, I turned away, not able to believe God was listening or caring.

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My anger turned to depression. Deep depression, manifested in my inability to sing my favorite songs. Didn’t want to be encouraged. Didn’t even want to hear them at all.

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My heart is lonely without You. I cried out for help, and You came running.

Praising Through the Hard Stuff

Praising Through the Hard Stuff

I’m missing something. I just know it. I can feel it wayyyy down deep, there’s just something not right. Not in my mind, heart, or my spirit.

I’ve found myself asking God, “How much longer do I have to live through this? How much longer Lord, until there’s some movement in this situation? How much longer Lord?”

Yet, God seems extremely silent to me.

Miracle of Miracles

Miracle of Miracles

Quite a few years ago, I heard the term, "Ordinary Miracles". I wonder, is there such a thing? I have never thought of miracles as ordinary. And the least ordinary of them all, the one that still amazes me most, is God born as a baby to become the Word of God in the flesh. I hope I never get used to the miracles of God. Especially the ultimate miracle of His birth.

Simply Breathing Thanks

Simply Breathing Thanks

Sometimes we make things too complicated. We carry burdens too hard to bear we are not meant to. In these days of hardship and trials, may we remember to stop, listen, and breathe thanks to the Lord simply for giving us each day.

My Shelter

My Shelter

A quick poem of thankfulness to God my Refuge, my Strength, my Safe Place.

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. Psalm 57:1

When Roots Run Deep

When Roots Run Deep

Psalm chapter 1 assures us when we are truly blessed when we live a Godly life, we meditate on God’s word day and night, then we will be like a tree planted by streams of water that brings forth fruit. Our leaves will not wither, and we will prosper.

With the sure foundation of God’s word, we are rooted and grounded in the love of God, giving us the strength to live each day.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this poem and what it means to you...

One Day at a Time

One Day at a Time

What is the valley of the shadow of death you are walking through? What is the deepest, hardest, darkest path you’ve ever trod?

I’ve been walking a dark path for a few years. I don’t talk about it, mostly to protect a person I love and their privacy. This person is so special to me. I love her with all my heart.

I don’t know when this miracle will happen. But God is patient, and He will supply our every need. He will help us bear this burden, one day at a time.

The Mysterious Road to Jesus

The Mysterious Road to Jesus

I wonder though, how many times in my grief and burdens of life, I miss seeing Him or realizing He is with me because I am too centered on myself and my circumstances.

What if I just stayed in His presence all the time? What if I spent more time in prayer and communing with God? Would I have more peace in my life? Would I know Him when I saw Him?
