Rumors

Wispy feathery clouds in the morning sky

Some words spoken

Float past us like wispy

Feathers in the sky

Nebulous clouds bringing doubt

Uncertainty and confusion

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Dont give up and run for cover

When clouds of adversity hover

Stand firm and you’ll discover

There’s strength in standing still

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

In Obedience

Clouds

Chasing thoughts

That swirl like clouds

High, lofty

Low, gloomy

Casting them down in Christ and

Captivating them

Shadorma

casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:5

When…

Clouds in blue sky

Worries appear like

Cloud, upon cloud, upon cloud

Threatening your day

Shift the view by looking up

Focus on blue sky above

Tanka

As the clouds move on and pass away, so will your troubles. Therefore, do not worry, but shift your focus to look to God above who is in control of all things.

(While out shopping today I happened to look up at the sky, as I often do because I always enjoy seeing the many different beautiful clouds Oregon has,and seeing this scalloped cloud formation today intrigued me.

As I gazed at it this poem formed in my mind that I felt I should share as it’s always a good reminder to me, as well as others, that we should not worry. )
