God Has Made My Form

Creep by creep, crawl by crawl.
The earth is such a trek.
Craggy rocks and thorny bushes
Threaten to make me wreck.
Danger appears, sounds terrify.
I hide within my shell.
I’m just a sluggish sea turtle.
I do not fight too well.
Alas the water, my safety net.
I swim within the depth.
A whole other world to battle
With every creature met.
Yet there is a blessed gift
I still have on my side.
God has made my form.
In His hand I do abide.

We Have Yet To Understand

Christmas falls like snow in the air
On a sunny and warm day.
Things are as expected,
God will have His way.
He needs no permission of the calendar,
Nor direction from the sun.
He knows how to do mysterious wonders.
He smiles for the fun.
The air turns cold as night arrives,
And He blankets the earth with snow.
He loves the delight in the child’s eye.
He creates a tender glow.
We recognize Your power, Lord.
Our seasons are in Your hand.
For everything we think we know,
We have yet to understand.

Weathering Life

Smoky winds are hints
To what’s going on inside.
They don’t give the details,
But they won’t let you hide.
Foggy hills and mountains
Beautify the view,
But foggy valleys and roads
Obstruct the view.
Storm clouds roll in.
Storm clouds roll out.
You can’t be certain of their intentions.
They only make you doubt.
God creates wondrous works
To bless and to test.
May you find comfort and peace
In His sweet rest.

Inspirations: Today’s weather.

Beautiful and Festive Display

Sparkles of light in the misty air.
Ribbons of color dance with flair.
Glitter glistens and shimmers in the light.
Snowflakes fall in the cool of the night.
The wonder of winter at Christmas time
Delightfully brightens the playful chime.
What a beautiful and festive display
Of the Holy and majestic day.
The precious Child born a King,
With Godly love and salvation to bring.
A path of pain and tears he’ll bear
To give the greatest gift to share.
Eternal Life is ours to receive.
All we have to do is just believe.
Join the angelic host in singing.
Hear the Hallelujah bells ringing.

The Warmth of Love

A little girl staring at a candle
Watches the flame dance.
Such a beautiful and playful light
Has her in a trance.
The heat drifts over her
And makes her forget
How cold it really is,
As she enters into her death.
Suddenly the light comes alive
And embraces her little soul.
Her Savior has welcomed her home
With a loving hold.
No more will she shiver or shake.
She knows the warmth of love.
She is with her good and perfect gift,
A home with her Father above.

So Much Need For Help

There’s a little boy
Sleeping on his cardboard.
He’s dreaming of things
He’s never had before.
There’s a little girl
Cuddled with her mother.
They’re shivering in the car
With no help from another.
There’s an old man with a beard
Sleeping in his tent,
He’s forgotten how long it’s been
Since he couldn’t pay the rent.
There’s a family under the bridge
Who are close to losing hope.
They’re clinging to their faith,
As they struggle just to cope.
You and I have so much
We can share with someone else.
Listen for God’s whispers
Where you can give some help.

Omni Love

My world may fall apart
And all that lives within it,
But I know that You’re in control
Every minute.
So much may come at me.
So much may threaten my day.
But I know You’re very aware
Of what comes my way.
So much loss in health and life,
And loved ones gone home.
But I know You’re always with me,
And never leave me alone.
Challenges, losses, and illnesses,
Just a few of my earthly foes.
Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent.
Just a few reasons why I love You so.
