My Life from A to Z

Letters A and Z

Alien

Because I was without

Christ, living in

Darkness

Ensnared, a

Foreigner to Israel, without

God and without

Hope, a gentile in

Israel and to all

Jews

Knowing not the

Love of God, believing in

Myths

Not knowing the truth

Of the wonderful

Promises of God

Questioning life’s purpose

Running from truth, a

Stranger to the covenant of Promise

Then, through God’s grace

Understanding the gospel brought me to

Victory in Christ, and I was a

Wanderer no more, a

Xenos no more, I belonged and was

Yoked to Christ forever in

Zion, the New Jerusalem.

Tackling Thoughts

Bible, coffee cup, scripture verse, Psalm 94:19

Stress abounds

If we allow it to

Restrain it

Detain it

Take it captive and cast down

Imaginations

Shadorma

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

Not once, in all times I’ve cried,

Coming to you broken,

In sorrow on bended knee,

Heart burdened with pain,

Not once, have You not heard.

Yet, of certain things

You’ve not replied though

In tears I ask again and again.

My heart knows as I walk

Taking steps my eyes can’t see,

That someday soon You will answer,

Fulfilling things hoped for

By this trusting soul, for

Not once, have You not heard.

Sonnet (Modern-unrhymed)

(Based on Hebrews 11:1 and 2Corinthians 5:7)

The Greatest Gift

God

So loved

Everyone

Yes, everyone

In the whole world

That He gave us a gift

The most precious gift He could

He gave us all His Only Son

Who died to save us all from our sins

And bring us all into eternal life

Etheree

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5:13

Resting in Him

Bible, coffee cup, Psalm 94:19 scripture

As my heart fills with perplexity

And threatens to overwhelm my soul

My minds fills with Your words to me

Comforting with precious

Promises so sweet

And remembrance

Of Your care

Towards

Me

Nonet

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 KJV

The Promise Of Spring

Crocus flower

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Winter shall soon be done

Oh worry not weary one

Spring’s life has begun

And winter must succum

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Triolet

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22

Looking for Gumption

Nut tree orchard in winter

I’m fighting

The urge to not care

To give up

Abandon

All the minutes given

Me to use today

Shadorma

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalm 63:1
