Stepping

Forward covered,

Wearing the shield of faith.

Walking towards eternity,

In Him.

“Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

When my flesh groans instead

“Abide in Me” He said

“Wait on Me, do not dread,

Endure pruning’s pain”

Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

Triolet

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:4

Strong Standing Faith—Faith Standing Strong–Revised Poem

FAITH-VintageBoot-Rose-Scripture
Faith holds strongly
Belief based deeply
Un-battered, Un-broken
Heart un-swaying
Joyfully dances securely
Soul peaceful
Doubts fly away
Faith stands firm
Beliefs rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted beliefs
Firm stands faith
Away fly doubts
Peaceful soul
Securely dances joyfully
Un-swaying heart
Un-broken, Un-battered
Deeply based belief
Strongly holds faith

Blessings and Sorrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

All have some

Present, or tomorrows

Like a beating drum

Life constantly harrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

Keep the faith to overcome

And stand strong in all the morrows

Rhyme

Inspired by:–Don Moen–“Be It Onto Me” song lyrics:

You promised to carry our sorrows
Lord, we believe it’s true
You promised unending tomorrows
Lord we receive them from you

Strong Standing Faith—Faith Standing Strong

Tree in leaves blowing in wind, rooted deep

Tree holding strongly

Roots digging deeply

Un-battered,Un-broken

Leaves swaying

Branches dancing wildly

Whipping winds lashing

Tree standing firm

Rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted

Firm standing tree

Lashing winds whipping

Wildly dancing branches

Swaying leaves

Un-broken, Un-battered

Deeply digging roots

Strongly holding tree
