Trust Him

He always works it out

I dont know how He does it

But I know He does

“This Too Shall Pass”

Photo of March 15 “The Grace of Encouragement”calendar page
My calendar today inspired this poem.

Troubles

Like storm clouds

Floating into our lives

Will flow out like river water

Fear not!

Cinquain

(My mom lived in and survived the Great Depression. “This Too Shall Pass” was one of her favorite sayings. It is also becoming one of mine.)

Dont worry or hurry

Trust God to care for you

Like the birds do

Haiku

“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?” –Jesus. Matthew 6:26

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. )

Field Flowers

Field of Daises
Don’t worry, go forth

Dressed in His finery.

Flowers of the field

Clothed in His great splendor

Far greater than Solomon

Tanka

And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. Matthew 6:28-29
