As a publisher I love to bring authors and readers together, and especially I love it when they are reflecting together on God’s truth, creation, and the life of faith. In this way, writing—and reading—a book of poetry can lead to worship expressed in words, art and action.
With this poem I affirm my faith in:
God’s love, that changes hearts.
God’s power, that calms storms.
Jesus’ victory, that delivers from evil.
The Holy Spirit’s presence, that offers soul rest.
Some things in this world make me mad—
but I cannot live with hate.
The One whose anger had no sin
plants His love within.
Some things in this world frighten me—
but I cannot live in fear.
The One who calmed the thundering storm
keeps me safe and warm.
Some things in this world are abhorrent to me—
but I cannot live in disgust.
The One who cast the demons out
gives a victory shout.
Some things in this world vex my nerves—
but I cannot live in tension.
The One who took all mankind’s stress
gives vitalizing rest.
During the month of April we are Celebrating:
- National Poetry Month
- and Spring!
Take time to experience, appreciate, and meditate on Re-awakenings and Renewal:
- in Nature all around us;
- in our Relationships to God and each other;
- of our Spiritual Life and Eternal Hope.
Reading inspirational poems can help you focus, “be still and know.”
