“Get used

To different”

As we follow Jesus

In a world of conformity

We see

How to

Be different

Our old ways will leave us

As we begin to walk new paths

With Him

Forewarning

Bible

Behold, I am coming soon

I hope I find you ready

Might be morning, night or noon

Behold, I am coming soon

Might be at a time inopportune

I hope I find your faith steady

Behold, I am coming soon

I hope I find you ready

Triolet

Behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of prophecy in this book.” —Jesus (Revelation 22:7 )

Who Done It ?

Moon, earth, universe, blackness

And the earth was without form,

(Unorganized, shapeless, chaotic, crude

Actually it was quite rough and rude)

and void; (useless,unoccupied, empty,

Nothing meaningful for any to see)

and darkness,

(Ruled, all robed in black, did creep

All around and) was upon the face of the deep.

And Abimelech said,

(Many years later while on earth he tread,)

“I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou tell me,

neither yet heard I of it, but to day.”

Free Verse

According to NaPoWriMo’s Day 14 Prompt: Grab a book that is nearest to you. Start the poem with the second sentence in the book and then add the 15th sentence from page 24 somewhere else in the poem

So the book nearest to me at the time was my bible and so this poem Is based on:

Genesis 1:2 and Genesis 21:26

The words in parentheses are mine, the others are from the Bible and are italicized.

It’s kind of interesting how these two sentences fit together. 😊

Provision

Three Sparrows

At a time when

Gatherings are discouraged

Sparrows meet together

Feasting on food provided

By their Father in heaven

Tanka

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

(Seeing these birds in the parking lot at my local grocery was a great reminder that God will provide during these unstable times and like the birds I should not worry about what I will eat or drink.)

Purpose

Exodus 9:16 scripture

Raised up for what?

To show His power in you!

Declare His name

Everywhere you travel

That’s His purpose for you

Tanka

Based on Exodus 9:16 scripture where the Lord was speaking to Moses regarding His purpose in dealing with Pharaoh. Just as the Lord raised up Moses for that purpose, so has He done the same for all of us who believe.

We all have a purpose. He created each of us to fulfill His plan. Wherever we are today we can show forth His power as we declare His name. It’s not about us, it’s about Him.

Randomly in my head

Thoughts abounding

Think on these things

God’s word reminds me

I take thoughts

Captive in my head

Double Syllable Lune

Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

Manifest actions

PEACE

Blue feather watercolor drawing “Peace” original creation of Leona J. Atkinson
Original Watercolor by Leona J. Atkinson

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27)

Endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:3)

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house (Luke 10:5)

Carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.(Romans 8:6)

Eschew evil, and do good; seek peace and ensue it. (1Peter 3:11)
