In The Father’s Hand

White ceramic hands holding birdseed

Sons of the kingdom

The good seeds

Sown by Son of Man

Syllable Lune

Based on Matthew 13:37-38

…”He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom,…”

World Overview

Man racing with time

Quickly jotted notes

Faceless friends and family

Life passing by

Living in a timeclock

Checking Apple’s watch

Running life’s racetrack

In a zombie world

Filled with roads to nowhere

Lonely souls needing God.

Living Life

Robot sculpture in field McMinnville,OR 2019

Living in an imperfect world

With imperfect people

As we struggle to survive

Searching for answers

With imperfect people

We walk, talk and dwell

Searching for answers

Only God can help us achieve

We walk, talk and dwell

Climbing mountains

Only God can help us achieve

Are we willing to trust Him?

Climbing mountains

Living in an imperfect world

Are we willing to trust Him?

As we struggle to survive

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 26–Prompt: Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that uses repetition.

Posted in Abecedarian, April 2019, NaPoWriMo 2019, Scripture

My Life from A to Z

Letters A and Z

Alien

Because I was without

Christ, living in

Darkness

Ensnared, a

Foreigner to Israel, without

God and without

Hope, a gentile in

Israel and to all

Jews

Knowing not the

Love of God, believing in

Myths

Not knowing the truth

Of the wonderful

Promises of God

Questioning life’s purpose

Running from truth, a

Stranger to the covenant of Promise

Then, through God’s grace

Understanding the gospel brought me to

Victory in Christ, and I was a

Wanderer no more, a

Xenos no more, I belonged and was

Yoked to Christ forever in

Zion, the New Jerusalem.

Abecedarian

(Based on Ephesians 2)

#NaPoWriMo—Day 14–Off Prompt

Posted in April 2019, Christian, NaPoWriMo 2019, Rhyme, Syllabic Verse

If

Ten Commandments

If I didn’t know You

As I truly do

I could tell a lie

And not blink an eye

Worship an idol

With any title

Use your name in vain

Or kill like Cain

Even cheat and steal

Without any ideal

Chosing not to laud

Parents and You, God

If I didn’t know You

As I truly do

I would break all Ten

As do some men

Mankind unaware

Living without care

Never to repent

On a knee that’s bent

Who’ve never heard

The Covenant word

If them I don’t tell

I’m guilty as well

Syllabic Verse/Rhyme

(Based on the Ten Commandments Of God)

#NaPoWriMo-Day 6-Prompt: Today, write a poem that emphasizes the power of “if,” of the woulds and coulds and shoulds of the world.

Tackling Thoughts

Bible, coffee cup, scripture verse, Psalm 94:19

Stress abounds

If we allow it to

Restrain it

Detain it

Take it captive and cast down

Imaginations

Shadorma

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

Faith

Not once, in all times I’ve cried,

Coming to you broken,

In sorrow on bended knee,

Heart burdened with pain,

Not once, have You not heard.

Yet, of certain things

You’ve not replied though

In tears I ask again and again.

My heart knows as I walk

Taking steps my eyes can’t see,

That someday soon You will answer,

Fulfilling things hoped for

By this trusting soul, for

Not once, have You not heard.

Sonnet (Modern-unrhymed)

(Based on Hebrews 11:1 and 2Corinthians 5:7)
