Taking Roses from Wolves (Light Poem)

Bright and beautiful

There are roses

Amongst wolves

~♦~

To reach them,

One must face

The violent pack

~♦~

Each rose

Has its thorns,

But beyond them

There are wolves

Circling

~♦~

These wolves

Care not for the rose

Their violent intent

Is in their eyes

~♦~

It takes a brave

And steady soul

To reach the rose

Past the wolves

~♦~

The thorns of the rose

Burden one not

When you realize

The wolves are the true concern

~♦~

Rescuing the roses

Saving them

To preserve them with care

A noble and sacrificial aim

In Everything

Even when times are tough, we have to remember that God is with us in everything. There is no situation too dark, too confusing, too painful, too shameful, too hopeless, too disappointing, too frustrating, or too terrible that God cannot help us walk through and heal us from it.

We need to hold on to this hope. We need to meditate on it and let it reach our hearts. It is truth, it is light, and it is our weapon.

The enemy comes against us, and though his tactics are numerous, none can prevail against the children of the Most High God!

It will get better! You will come out of this stronger! Your Heavenly Father loves you, and I’m praying for you!

Blessings,

-God’s Beloved

Forward (Light Poem)

One step

Then another

Along a path

I did not design

~♦~

My plans

And my control

Are illusions

There are no

Absolute solutions

~♦~

Each day will pass

And each

Will be a miracle

As I survive

~♦~

Buffeted

Beaten

Bruised

and Broken

~♦~

But stronger I arise

Every broken piece

Mended

To make me whole

~♦~

Walking in peace

And in love

Giving of all

That I can

~♦~

A perfect hope

In an imperfect world

A light

Amidst the great darkness

A Simple Message: Timing

So much of life is affected by timing. Saying the right thing at the right time, being in the right place at the right time, and even thinking the right thing at the right time. Timing is very important, and we can’t always get it right on our own.

However, our God knows the perfect timing for everything.

Listen for His voice, and follow His leading. He can help you navigate life with the best timing!

A Wasted Breath (Light Poem)

Standing alone

A burning fire

Within the heart

Frustration and anger

Filling the soul

♦~♦

A cry projected

Out to the air

A wasted breath

With no one there

♦~♦

Alone in suffering

Or lost with something missing?

Broken and defeated

Or on the verge of

An uplifting?

♦~♦

Finding something

That had been invisible

Knowing something

That had been unknown

♦~♦

A new purpose

A new understanding

A release

More true

Than a wasted breath

New Poetry Form: Evangelic Poems (Light Poems)

I have decided to explore a new direction with my poetry!

Most of the poems that I have written and posted so far are for believers. They are meant to encourage and strengthen Christians in their walk with God.

However, I also have a heart to reach those who do not yet know Christ- and I think that my poetry might be an avenue through which I can evangelize. Going forward, I will be posting a mix of my regular Faith Poems, Mini Faith Poems, and the new Light Poems.

My hope and my prayer is that my poetry will reach the widest audience possible and will bless all who read it.

Devoted to God (Faith Poem)

No matter what I face

I will always trust You

I will trust Your strength

And I will trust Your grace

♦~♦

This world cannot break me

Every day is in Your hand

I will walk along the path

That You have planned

♦~♦

I will speak love and life

To reflect Your heart

I will live out Your design

By actively playing my part

Following (Faith Poem)

I must choose to follow

My heart

That’s beating hard in my chest

Or the Spirit

That beckons me

To wait and rest

♦~♦

My heart would have me follow

My urges and desires

But the Spirit

Will guide me

To God’s perfect Will

And His perfect desires

♦~♦

The Lord’s plans are highest

And I will follow His Spirit

My heart will mend

And will learn to be at peace

Confusion (Faith Poem)

When the boundary markings slide

And the line in the sand

Is blurred

When the obvious choice

Hides

We can find ourselves

In confusion

♦~♦

Living our lives

According to the Will of God

Is not always easy

As confusion tries

To draw us away

♦~♦

Pray fervently

Speak thoughtfully

Step carefully

Confusion will be swept aside

And the light of God’s truth

Will shine through

Over and Over (Faith Poem)

When the hits come

Over and over

Know that the Lord will provide

Over and over

♦~♦

When you fall down

Over and over

Know that the Lord

Will lift you up

Over and over

♦~♦

There is nothing

In this life

That will ever defeat you

When you walk

With the Lord

♦~♦

Praise Him for His love and His faithfulness

Over and over
