Peace

Peace Where is the peace the angels proclaimed? The earth still swirls with sin and pain. Only humble hearts swept clean Contain the Holy Gift. Believe, trust, bow low. Wise men still seek Him to know. Our true Peace.   “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. . . . Do not […]

A Christian’s Legacy

If I teach you the love of nature — to respect all living things by being kind to animals strangers, and friends — Yet . . . don’t teach you about God, I’ve taught you simply compassion not hope. If I show you the beauty of the ocean — to notice its vastness by exploring […]

Metamorphosis

Fuzzy, wuzzy, wooly, Inching along the brown bumpy branch. Never knowing now the Promise Of soaring, sailing, shimmering In the coming Dance.   Bumbling, bleary, blinded Stumbling we go Through life’s weary winding ways Till the Promise we know Of beauty, bliss, brilliant life unending, Awaiting our metamorphosis.

The Dusty Bible

  I found an old, old Bible  Tucked away with other books. And felt perhaps a treasure lay within its pages — so I looked.  I didn’t find a treasure rare inside the book itself. But upon the faded pages were gifts beyond man’s wealth. The words told a wondrous story A time I’d never […]

I Am With You Always

As I think about my life Walking through each day, I remember what Jesus said: “I am with you always.”   When I have lost a loved one And grief upon me lays, I remember Jesus saying, “I am with you always.”   While I am feeling anxious In my work or in my play, […]

One Candle

One candle to burn in  the  desperate  darkness. One candle to cast circles of  Christ’s  love. One candle to guide travelers lost in  the night. One candle to reflect the everlasting flame of One  Life. – Elaine Wilburt

Be My eyes and be My ears, Seeing, listening to hear All those who need Me. Be My hands and be My feet, Reaching, walking thus to meet The souls who seek Me. Let your heart be so like Mine, Calling on My love, divine, That all who pass you on their way Will turn […]

Be Still (Psalm 46:10)

“Be still and know that I am God.” God, Creator, Sustainer, Lover. Be still and know that I am — am, was and always will be. Be still and know that I — I, and no other, am He. Be still and know that — that I care for you more than any other. Be […]

Sacred Seventh

Spirit of God fill my heart  This Sabbath night holy night.  Bring Your peace and put to rest  My worthless ways and foolishness.  In place of fear grant holy zeal  That even Satan cannot steal.  Feed me with your living Word,  Wash me in Messiah’s blood.  Free me from myself and sin  So I will […]

Great Expectations

Great expectations delight our Most High God, Mysterious, unexpected are His ways. Though our cherished plans go awry,  His good purposes will prevail. Joshua declared — sun stood still.  March, shout — walls fell flat. What visions, what dreams throb within? Jesus said ask — mountains will move. Great Expectations  Soar on wings of faith […]
