Shalowm Shalowm

Isaiah 26:3 verse

Perfect peace.

Provided by

The One in who created me.

His workmanship, encased by

His love.

Cinquain

This poem is based on Isaiah 26:3. I have prayed that verse many times over myself at night before shutting my eyes to sleep and as I read that verse this morning I wondered for the first time just what the original words for “perfect peace” were. An interlinear word search showed me that both words mean the same, or as we would say “shalom shalom” the highest peace possible. What a blessed way to sleep at night!

Provision

Three Sparrows

At a time when

Gatherings are discouraged

Sparrows meet together

Feasting on food provided

By their Father in heaven

Tanka

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? Matthew 6:26

(Seeing these birds in the parking lot at my local grocery was a great reminder that God will provide during these unstable times and like the birds I should not worry about what I will eat or drink.)

Life Walk

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23 visual
Original Image— My Creative Bible

My joyful journey

Brings me beside still waters

Trusting my Shepherd

To lead through pastures of green

Peacefully I stroll

Pockets filled with promises

Walking with my King

Over mountains high and wide

And valleys deep and narrow

Choka

(Based on Psalm 23)

Thankful

Thankful, leaves

Thankful for full plates now empty

Thankful for hands that cook and bake

Thankful for another day

Thankful for hearts that care

Thankful for thirst now quenched

Thankful for warm places

Thankful for

My life

Thankful

The Tree Of Life

Tree

Of Life

Nourishes

Branches extend

To reach the nations

With leaves of healing

Planted beside the River

Of Life in Heaven’s Paradise

Bearing twelve fruits for Overcomers

Who will dwell in the New Jerusalem

Providing supernatural provision

As they eat eternally from its abundant supply

Observe then, and believe this wonderful truth

The Tree of Life

Can be for you

Accept Christ and

Live eternally

My Future

park pathway
The Lord has future plans for me that are good.
I trust in Him, for I know He will act.
He has plans that are exact.

He will give me an abundant life.
I do not have to worry,
or be in a hurry.

He will provide for me,
As He provides for the birds of the air.
I can depend on His care.

Therefore, I will delight myself in Him,
and trust in Him, for He does guarantee
the desires of my heart He’ll give to me.

As I trust Him and acknowledge Him,
He will direct my paths and make them straight,
And they’ll lead me right to Heaven’s gate.

My eye, nor ear, nor heart, cannot even imagine
what He has prepared for me,
Here on earth and in the Heavenly.

I have faith that He will reward me as I seek Him,
and love Him with all my heart, mind and soul.
That is my future, that is my goal.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)
