Rooted in the Word

Quote from Chuck Swindoll from his book “Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life”

How long

The winds do blow

Upon my weary head!

I dig in my heels, standing firm

In Him.

Cinquain

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,

rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.

Colossians 2:6-7 NKJV

Functioning Faith

Mustard seeds

Planting mustard seeds

On my knees, moving mountains,

Breaking down barriers.

Senryu

Believe and Pray:

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20 KJV

Lord,

Sky with clouds

Whom have I but You?

To help when I’m sad and blue,

To plant a new seed,

To lift me in times of need,

To listen to prayers I plead.

Tanka

(Based on Psalm 73: 25-26)

Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Thank You Lord, for always bring there for me, to listen, care and help.

Syllablic Verse

My grand-daughter and I had a “painting day” together today. We had fun painting inspirational rocks to put in my rock garden.

She was very creative and imaginative and turned two of the rocks into a horse face! 😊
